FREEMAN HISTORY -- STORIES   (May or may not all be factual)

 

From “A History of Samuel Freeman of Miami County, Ohio, and His Descendants” by Raymond B. Freeman, 1955   (did not find this book in the Allen County Public Library.   Perhaps it is owned just by members of the Freeman family)

 

He gave as his sources:   A history written by Bessie Pixley;  from “History of Greene Co” by R.S. Dills, 1881;  and recollections of Isaac Freeman.  

 

SAMUEL was a hunter and trapper while in New Jersey.

He may also have lived in PA before going further west. 

Son, John says he was born in PA  

 

After a marriage about 1777 Samuel and his new wife started for the West bringing some money, a gun, tomahawk, blankets and a 2-year old colt.   They reached Boonesborough, KY where Daniel Boone had built some fortifications.   Stayed a short time and then started up the river to Cincinnati.   Built the first shingle-roofed house there and opened a hotel.   At the time a lot could be bought for the price of what fish a man could catch in one day. 

 

While in Cincinnati (possibly called earlier Fort Washington where General Wayne’s army was stationed) Samuel was busy.  

            He bought 4 lots in 1789 and later 2 others

            He was listed as a “Viewer of enclosures”          

            And “appraiser of damages” in 1793

            In 1795 he was “Overseer of the Poor” and “Overseer of Highways”

            Probably was a dealer in land

            Gave $1 for work to be done on the First Presbyterian Meeting House in 1794

            Also on the giving list were Ezra Fitz Freeman and Thomas Fream.

 

   From Cincinnati, about 1801, they moved up the Little Miami River to Tipp City in Miami County.   Or Greene Co. on Little Beaver about 7 or 8 miles from Dayton.    Both places were given.   At various times he apparently was in both counties. 

 

Son WILLIAM settled near Beaver Creek township on the Mad River which is next to Sugar Creek township, Greene Co., OH.   Samuel and son, John, came on across the county line into Miami Co in Monroe township.    They entered a large tract of land and improved it.   Then sold a part and erected a mill which was the 2nd one built in the county.  

 

WILLIAM, son of Samuel, was reported to have been in a lot of adventures.   Until he married he was on the move.   When he was 11 years old he ran away from home and went to General Anthony’s Wayne’s camp.   He wanted to join the army.   Gen. Wayne rightly sent him back home with a promise that he could do that when he was older.   He kept that promise and William did fight several battles against the Indians.   But he also went to live with the Miami Indians.   He always felt that it was wrong to drive the Indians from their land and he had many Indian friends that he continued to visit.     His will was proved June 10, 1844.  He gave bequests to his wife, Sarah, daughter Priscilla, and Elam S. Freeman, who was not one of his children, but apparently was close to him.   The 7 children listed were:

Elizabeth married to James Dunlap;  Priscilla married to Levi R. Cavender;   Mary married to Fleming Stevenson;  Thomas J., John, William and Sarah Ann.

 

SAMUEL was found as a grand juror on the May term 1808, Common Pleas Court, Miami Co.

 

Samuel Freeman, JR. died before his father, probate 1814 with Margaret as administratrix.

 

Apparently Samuel and Priscilla may be buried on one of the family farms there in an old cemetery.   Priscilla’s stone reads “Priscilla Freeman, wife of Samuel Freeman, died May 22, 1826”.  No stone was found for Samuel but many of the stones were gone.

 

                        ___________________________________________________________ 

 

Son JOHN Freeman died August 25, 1854 and is buried in Bethel Church Cemetery, Bethel Township, Miami County, Ohio.     A little about some his children:

 

SUSANNAH married Aaron D. Goble and they had 9 children born in Miami Co, and then settled in Whitley Co., IN.  Susan (June 9, 1805-Feb 13, 1872) was 66 years, 8 months and 4 days when she died.   Her husband Aaron (March 4, 1805 – Aug 2, 1883) was 78 years, 4 months, 29 days.

 

PRISCILLA Freeman married John P. Shoaff on February 5, 1829 and they settled in Allen Co., Indiana about 1835.    They are both buried in the Fairview Cemetery northwest of Huntertown, IN.   More about them will be found under the Shoaff family.  

 

FRAME C. FREEMAN (often written FREAM C. FREEMAN)  moved to Allen Co., IN about 1835.    The family history gives him 3 wives though we find in the marriage records a possible 2 other names of marriages to a Fream or Frame Freeman in Allen Co., IN.

 

            1.  MARTHA REED, March 8, 1832 in Miami Co., Ohio 

            2.  ELIZABETH SIMON, 1840   

            3.  EMILY CLARK, February 3, 1853 DeKalb Co., IN   

            4.  ELIZA DOUGLAS, June 22, 1854, Allen Co., IN   

            5.  MARY (HELD) SNYDER, July 6, 1856, Allen Co., IN   

 

Martha, Elizabeth Simon, and Mary Held are given in the family history.   Perhaps someone can explain the other two?  

 

FRAME FREEMAN made his will on April 17, 1860 and it was not proven until July 27, 1871.   According to his will at that time his wife was MARY.    Mary Held had been married to John Snyder and had some children by him that she brought with her to her marriage to Frame.   She was also first cousin to the famous actress, Anna Held.    Census records show her children by this previous marriage living with them.   Children named in his will were:

William, Jane, Robert, Milton M., Matilda Fisher, Nancy Howder Humbert, Mary Elin Mires, Elizabeth McKinney, Catherine Manning, Henrietta Freeman. 

 

MARY FREEMAN  Married Milton Wells on March 28, 1833.   She died at the age of 36 years.    Apparently Milton died not long after their marriage as there is a headstone in Mills or Wells Cemetery, Miami Co., OH that says “In memory of Milton Wells, born Oct 8, 1811 and died Feb. 5, 1835, aged 23 years, 3 months, 28 days”.    

 

MATILDA FREEMAN, married her first cousin THOMAS J. FREEMAN, who was the son of William Freeman of Greene Co., OH.   A story on Thomas tells that two days after he was born a band of Indians made a raid on the home and the father, William, fought them off.   After their first child was born they moved to Auburn, IN and to a farm south of Auburn that was called Morning Star farm.   About 1844 Thomas sold the farm and bought a tavern or inn at Auburn.   Matilda died in 1849 leaving Thomas with 3 children.   He remarried to Hortense Miner.   She was a teacher, but she did not live long and died leaving Thomas with another child.   Apparently that child, was taken by an aunt to be raised.   Then Thomas and his son, Samuel aged 13, traveled thru the West, Mexico, Kansas.   On the morning of February 7, 1859, Thomas was robbed and murdered on his place in Kansas.   He was called the pioneer of Union Township of DeKalb Co., IN.    Some confusion here possibly between Thomas J. the father and Thomas J. the son.  

 

ESTHER FREEMAN married William Howard Wells and they moved to Allen Co., IN, in 1838.   They may have gone to Kansas about 1870.   They both died at Belleville, Kansas

Of FRAME’S CHILDREN we have the following added information:

 

MILTON W. FREEMAN  was a carpenter and a farmer.   He died at Benton Harbor, MI. 

He married Henrietta Snyder on Nov. 6, 1859.   She was born Aug. 29, 1842 and she was the daughter of John Snyder and Mary (Held) Snyder.    After John Snyder died Mary married Frame C. Freeman and probably that was how the two, Milton and Henrietta,  met and fell in love.     (Here we note that there was also a Henrietta Freeman as found in the 1860 census who was the daughter of Frame Freeman and Betsey Simons. She was 10 years old in 1860.   She married a William Deam/Diehm.)  Two different Henriettas.  

 

ROBERT L. FREEMAN was born in Eel River Township, in the old log cabin.   His father, Frame, built a 2-story brick house about 1847.   Robert enlisted in 1862 in Co. E., 88th Indiana Regiment under Capt. Chauncey Oakley.   He served for 3 years and was in every battle with his regiment except for Stone Mountain.  He was discharged in 1865.   And in April of that same year he married Sarah J. McBride, and had four children.   In 1889 only two of them were still living, Winfield S. Freeman and Charles Franklin Freeman.  

 

Robert remarried to Katie Ann Gordon and they had 3 children.   He was township constable for 6 years, belonged to the Redmen and the Grange.   They are buried at Fairview Cemetery northwest of Huntertown, IN in Allen County.  

 

WILLIAM DAVID FREEMAN, born 1858 married  MARY CATHERINE WAPPES.   He had 8 children.
