Cemetery notes and/or description:
Location: Williamson Co., IL, situated immediately west of the village of Freeman Spur in southern Illinois.

Size: Approximately one acre. Established in early 1800's. The oldest identifiable tombstone is dated with the death of November 1, 1855 (Isaac Deason). The exact number of burials is unknown, but easily exceeds 350, with many unmarked graves. There are a minimum of 36 military verterans buried there including veterans of the Civil War, W.W.I, W.W.II, Korean War and the Vietnam War.

The cemetery is in an unincorporated area and not in the Village of Freeman Spur. It is not presently supported by any public funds or services. Individual donations are the only source of funds to cover the costs of maintenance.

A not-for-profit corporation has been established in recent years to oversee the care of the cemetery. A board of directors, consisting of volunteers, meets twice a year to make decisions and approve expenditures regarding the cemetery.

Donations for preservation of this cemetery may be made to:
The Freeman Cemetery Fund
P.O. Box 126
Freeman Spur, IL 62841
