The Freeman Cemetery Association was established in 1978 when Dillard Brooks and his heirs created the organization and deeded the property to it. The FCA meets annually in August in Martin, Tennessee, in order to update members about needed care and to share research about the families, cemetery, and community. Over the years, FCA has been responsible for a new wrought-iron fence, a new Freeman Cemetery name stone, and the addition of missing or replacement of damaged stones, as well as regular upkeep.
