GEORGE DILLARD BROOKS (1877-1966) married CHARLIE MARVIN MEEK BROOKS (1880-1966). They farmed near Freeman Cemetery and are buried there, along with one INFANT DAUGHTER BROOKS (1904-1904). Their son, Dillard Brooks (1906-1995), and his wife, Ima McLean Brooks (1909-2000), were community leaders and life-long members of First Methodist Church in Martin. Dillard served on the board of directors at City State Bank. They are buried in East Side Cemetery in Martin.

Charlie's parents were FELIX and CHARLOTTE TEMPERANCE ATKISON MEEK, and Felix was a descendant of JAMES and MARY HENLEY MEEK. That family is discussed further in the Meek and Mahon page of this website.

Dillard and Ima Brooks's daughter, Marilyn Brooks Hammonds, lives in Kingsport, Tennessee. She and her husband, Wayne Hammonds, have two sons, Jason Hammonds and Kevin Hammonds.
