Suckley sejarah

Pengenalan yang baik untuk sejarah Suckley boleh didapati di Victoria County History.

The King's Manor of Suckley di Worcestershire yang ditulis oleh Phyllis Williams pada tahun 1979 memberikan panduan komprehensif untuk Norman dan Abad Pertengahan Suckley.

Baru-baru ini, Marnie Caine telah menggarap sejarah Suckley. Anda boleh membaca mengenai beberapa kajiannya mengenai peta tahun 1840 di sini. Kumpulan sejarah tempatan Suckley kini aktif mengumpulkan maklumat lebih lanjut - nantikan perincian peristiwa.

Maklumat mengenai sejarah Rumah Putih di Suckley muncul dalam buku terbaru Julia Ionides Thomas Farnolls Pritchard of Shrewsbury - Architect dan 'Inventor of Cast Iron Bridges':

'Rumah Putih di Suckley, dekat dengan Gaines, telah menjadi milik Thomas Freeman pada tahun 1742 dan keluarganya tinggal di sana selama enam generasi selanjutnya. Ketika ayah Freeman meninggal pada tahun 1764, dia mula mengeluarkan wang di bangunan itu. Kakak Thomas, Betty, telah berkahwin dengan Bartholomew Barnaby dari Brockhampton sehingga Pritchard, yang bekerja di Gaines dan Brockhampton, akan menjadi pilihan yang jelas sebagai arkitek untuk pekerjaan itu.

'Rumah Putih adalah rumah setinggi tiga tingkat yang berasal dari zaman Ratu Anne. Perkara pertama yang menarik perhatian adalah tudung yang sangat halus di depan pintu dengan plasterwork Rococo cartouche dan semburan bunga yang lain, yang kurang hiasan, adalah di atas pintu masuk kebun di bahagian belakang rumah.

'Rumah itu mengandungi beberapa petunjuk gaya mengenai keterlibatan Pritchard: kerja melepa di atas perapian di ruang makan sangat mirip dengan kerja melepa di Gaines sehingga kelihatan seperti itu oleh Joseph Bromfield. Gerbang yang agak cetek di sebelah tangga bergema di Broad Gate House, Ludlow. Di sana pemodenan sepertinya telah berhenti dan banyak ciri menarik dari era sebelumnya untungnya dibiarkan kekal. '

Di atas adalah petikan dari 'Thomas Farnolls Pritchard of Shrewsbury - Architect dan &'Inventor of Cast Iron Bridges & quot' oleh Julia Ionides, 1999, Dog Rose Press, Ludlow, England, diterbitkan semula di sini dengan izin pengarang dan penerbit.

Suckley, dengan bekas kapel Lulsley dan Alfrick, adalah sebuah paroki pertanian yang luas dengan stesen * di cawangan Bromyard di kereta api Great Western. Itu terletak di ujung utara Malvern Hills, di sini dikenali sebagai Suckley Hills, 500 kaki di atas datum ordnance. Di sebelah selatan Old Storridge Hill, di Beck, ketinggian 600 kaki dicapai. Di utara tanah jatuh ke lembah Teme, yang membentuk sempadan utara. Paroki ini juga disiram oleh Leigh Brook dan anak-anak buahnya.

Jurulatih perbahasan legenda Dr Thomas F. Freeman, yang mengajar MLK, meninggal dunia pada usia 100 tahun

Jurulatih perdebatan Texas Southern University mempunyai kerjaya selama 70 tahun.

Petikan Martin Luther King Jr yang terkenal

Jurulatih perbahasan legenda Universiti Southern Texas Dr Thomas F. Freeman telah meninggal dunia pada usia 100 tahun, universiti itu telah mengumumkan.

Penghargaan diberikan kepada orator dan guru terkenal yang meninggal dunia pada hari Sabtu. Anak-anak Freeman mengesahkan bahawa dia mati akibat sebab semula jadi, hanya beberapa minggu menjelang ulang tahunnya yang ke-101 akhir bulan ini, menurut The Houston Chronicle.

Dia melatih ribuan pelajar sepanjang kariernya selama tujuh dekad, termasuk Martin Luther King Jr., sementara King adalah pelajar di Morehouse College di Atlanta.

Freeman juga mengajar Reps Barbara Jordan dan Mickey Leland, serta penyanyi pemenang Anugerah Grammy Yolanda Adams.

Dia ditoreh oleh pemenang Oscar, Denzel Washington untuk bekerjasama dengan pelakon muda untuk filem 2007 "The Great Debaters," yang menceritakan kisah kehidupan sebenar skuad debat hitam tahun 1930-an yang mengalahkan pasukan serba putih.

Anggota pasukan debat Universiti Selatan Texas ketika ini berkongsi beberapa pengalaman mereka dengan Freeman baru-baru ini dengan sauh ABC News, David Muir di Houston.

"Saya bermula di Texas Southern dengan Doc (Freeman)," kata presiden pasukan debat Putera Ibe kepada Muir. "Ini hanya pengalaman positif dan indah yang tidak akan saya lupakan."

Dominque Montgomery, ahli pasukan perdebatan, mengatakan Freeman tidak pernah terlepas seharian bekerja dan masih membentuk fikiran walaupun ketika menjelang ulang tahunnya yang ke-101.

"Anda bercakap tentang seorang lelaki yang datang bekerja setiap hari, walaupun pada usia 100," kata Montgomery. "Walaupun kita tidak ada di sana, dia masih bekerja."

Angelica Olunkwa berkata, Freeman melakukan setiap perjalanan dengan pasukan, menaiki bas atau terbang ke luar negara untuk pertandingan antarabangsa.

Pasukan debat mengatakan bahawa Freeman mengajar mereka bukan sahaja tentang berdebat, tetapi juga bagaimana membawa diri dan bagaimana didengar. Alexandria Barnaba, ahli pasukan debat, mengatakan bahawa dia selalu mendorong pelajarnya untuk melakukan yang terbaik.

"Ini adalah moto kami," kata Barnaba kepada Muir. "Kita semua tahu apa yang kita lakukan."

"Kami melakukannya dengan baik," kata pasukan debat serentak. "Apa yang tidak kita lakukan dengan baik, sama sekali tidak kita lakukan."

"Keindahan Dr. Freeman sendiri adalah warisannya ditanamkan pada setiap orang yang berinteraksi dengannya," kata Montgomery kepada Muir.

Semasa wawancara dengan ABC News tahun lalu, Freeman merenungkan warisannya di ibu pejabat pasukan debat Texas Southern University, di mana dia masih mengajar pada usia 100 tahun setelah memulakan kariernya di sana pada tahun 1949.

Freeman, yang pasukannya memenangi puluhan kejuaraan debat, mengatakan kunci untuk menjadi pendebat yang hebat adalah "mempunyai ketaatan kepada kebenaran. [Dan] fakta."

Ketika ditanya mengenai perkauman di Amerika, Freeman mengatakan bahawa "kecuali ada sesuatu yang dilakukan untuk mengatasi arus, kita akan menderita untuk waktu yang lama."

Antara yang memberi penghormatan kepada Freeman di media sosial adalah Texas Rep. Al Green, Walikota Houston Sylvester Turner dan Rep Sheila Jackson Lee.

"Hari ini, kita kehilangan legenda," tulis Green di Twitter. "Seorang lelaki yang benar-benar bebas, yang berusaha sedaya upaya untuk membebaskan dan membentuk pemikiran generasi pemimpin di belakangnya. Dr. Thomas F. Freeman bukan sahaja pendebat yang hebat tetapi suami dan ayah yang hebat, menteri yang hebat, lelaki yang hebat , dan rakan yang hebat. "

Hanya beberapa hari sebelum kematiannya, Freeman dan isterinya, Clarice, berkongsi dengan rahsia Houston ABC, KTRK, untuk mengekalkan perkahwinan mereka selama 67 tahun, memberitahu stesen itu bahawa salah satu kuncinya adalah "saling menghormati sejati."

"Saya rasa semua orang dilahirkan dengan rancangan," kata Clarice. "Rancangan itu untuk saya jatuh cinta dengan Thomas Freeman. Dan selebihnya adalah sejarah - 67 tahun sejarah."


Thomas Freeman (1784)

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 Semasa kami meneliti maklumat untuk Thomas Freeman, kami kagum dengan orang-orang Amerika terkenal awal yang dikaitkan dengannya seperti George Washington dan Thomas Jefferson. Rujukan kepadanya boleh didapati dalam ribuan buku dan artikel tetapi kami tidak pernah menemui biografi. Sekiranya pembaca mengetahui satu, kami akan senang mendengarnya. - Catatan editor

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Setelah mendapat tekanan besar dari kerajaan pusat, pada tahun 1805 Chickasaws menyerahkan tuntutan mereka kepada apa yang sekarang menjadi Madison County, dan Cherokees menyerahkan tanah mereka pada tahun 1806. Kedua transaksi tanah ini berjumlah 345,600 ekar. Menurut perjanjian India, pesuruhjaya dari pemerintah AS dan wakil-wakil dari negara-negara Chickasaw dan Cherokee diminta untuk menghadiri operasi garis sempadan untuk mengelakkan salah faham kemudian. Thomas Freeman, ketua juruukur, anak buahnya, dan saksi-saksi yang diperlukan berkumpul di Pulau Chickasaw (Pulau Hobbs) pada bulan September 1807, dan garis-garisnya disurvei dan ditandai dengan api di pepohonan. Kawasan ini, berbentuk seperti segitiga, dibatasi di selatan oleh Sungai Tennessee, di sebelah barat oleh garis Chickasaw yang baru dibuat, di utara oleh sempadan negara Tennessee, dan di sebelah timur oleh sempadan Cherokee India yang baru. (Orang-orang India tetap berdaulat di negara-negara mereka yang sekarang jauh lebih kecil, dan pasport diperlukan ed untuk memasuki wilayah mereka.) "- HMCHS

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Thomas Freeman terus meninjau tanah-tanah umum yang akan ditawarkan untuk dijual di daerah baru. Untuk membuat penjualan tanah setara mungkin di daerah yang luas ini, pola grid digunakan. Garis Dasar Huntsville ( timur-barat) ditubuhkan di garis negara Tennessee dan Huntsville Meridian (utara-selatan) menjadi garis membujur dari mana semua tanah di utara Alabama harus dikaji. Konsep ini membolehkan pembahagian 36 bahagian satu batu persegi ( 36 batu persegi) seluas 640 ekar masing-masing dengan koordinat kawasan bandar. Semua tanah kemudian diukur berbanding dengan Meridian pangkalan itu. Akibatnya, Madison County mempunyai dua rentang di sebelah barat Meridian dan dua rentang penuh di sebelah timur garis, ditambah bahagian sepertiga. Sebilangan besar peneroka mampu memperoleh bahagian yang paling biasa, bahagian Vi, atau 160 ekar. "

& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160Bekerja dari perkhemahan pangkalannya di Sungai Flint, Freeman menawarkan maklumat tambahan yang mungkin diperlukan oleh bakal peneroka dan pembeli untuk membuat tawaran di darat pada penjualan akan datang - nota lapangan terperinci yang merangkumi sungai, anak sungai, mata air, tanah yang dibersihkan, jenis tanah, kawasan berhutan. Freeman didesak untuk bergegas para penghuni liar itu cemas dan tidak sabar.
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160Surveyor Freeman, berjalan di rantai, menemui kebanyakan orang ini. Dalam laporan rasminya, dia menggambarkan mereka, setiap hari mereka tidak seperti penceroboh tanah awam yang lain. "Berkenaan dengan penceroboh di tanah umum, ada banyak dari mereka. Untuk keadilan kepada orang-orang ini, saya harus mengatakannya. Mereka pendiam, damai, sangat rajin, dan peka terhadap situasi mereka." Dia meneruskan contoh ketekunan mereka. "Setiap pondok memiliki ladang jagung. Sebilangan kecil kapas, tembakau, dan gandum juga ditanam, semuanya tumbuh subur. Tujuh kilang kecil untuk mengisar jagung akan didirikan pada musim sejuk berikutnya, beberapa sudah siap dan benar-benar berjalan. A penyulingan juga maju dan akan beroperasi dalam beberapa hari. Freeman menambah, para peneroka ini berharap dapat tinggal dan berpartisipasi sebagai warganegara penuh Amerika Syarikat dengan semua yang diperlukan. " - HMCHS

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Migrasi Besar akan menjadi sah di Madison County. Sekarang kawasan Great Bend telah tersedia untuk pembelian dan penyelesaian yang sah. Untuk memudahkan penjualan, Freeman diarahkan untuk bertindak sebagai daftar untuk menerima permohonan dari setinggan dan memberi mereka izin untuk kekal sebagai "penyewa sesuka hati" di tanah-tanah ini sehingga mereka boleh membuat tawaran untuk penjualan awam. Jualan ini dilakukan di Nashville pada 5 April 1809, dan 23.960 ekar dibeli di lelong, yang paling banyak dijual secara kredit untuk dibayar dalam masa lima tahun. Empat puluh peratus peneroka asal membeli tanah mereka. Tidak hairanlah, pembeli terbesar adalah lelaki yang sangat mengetahui tanah itu - Thomas Freeman - yang memperoleh 8,480 ekar. " - HMCHS

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Thomas Freeman, seorang lelaki Ireland, yang telah membantu menyusun Distrik Columbia, menyelesaikan tinjauan keseluruhan menggunakan sistem segi empat, bahagian dan wilayah. Dia pernah berkhidmat di bawah Jeneral George Washington dan dilantik oleh kerajaan pusat untuk mengukur grid asas tanah.Dia juga diperintahkan oleh pemerintah untuk bertindak sebagai pendaftar tanah, mengambil permohonan dari setinggan sebelum lelang tanah sehingga mereka dapat tetap sebagai 'penyewa sesuka hati' hingga tanah rasmi lelong boleh bermula di Nashville.
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160Proses penjualan tanah persekutuan adalah rumit. Freeman pertama kali berkontrak dengan peneroka yang sudah berada di tanah sebagai 'penyewa sesuka hati.' Permohonan itu diambil dan kebenaran diberikan untuk 282 ladang. Dengan membayar yuran sembilan shilling, mereka dapat tetap berada di tempat pilihan mereka dan menuai hasil panen mereka hingga tanah tersebut dijual di lelang. Tidak ada kelebihan yang diberikan kepada pemegang dokumen ini di lelong. Ini digunakan untuk menenangkan peneroka, yang akan dipaksa pindah jika mereka tidak berjaya di lelong. Kerajaan persekutuan kemudian mengadakan penjualan tanah di Nashville bermula pada bulan Ogos 1809. Freeman bimbang para setinggan dan para spekulator akan bersatu untuk mengelakkan persaingan dan menjaga harga rendah. Perpindahan ke Nashville adalah untuk mengelakkan perkara ini. Pertandingan aktif yang diharapkan oleh pegawai persekutuan jarang berlaku. Jawatankuasa Dewan Tanah Umum pernah menyatakan, 'Beberapa orang sanggup menimbulkan kemarahan jiran mereka dengan menawar harta mereka, di tempat awam, walaupun jiran lain adalah pemiutang dan ketika orang awam prihatin, hampir tidak seorang lelaki akan didapati cukup kuat untuk melakukannya. ' Wang tunai diperlukan untuk pembayaran pertama dan mesti dijumpai untuk empat pembayaran tahunan berikutnya, syarat yang sangat sukar bagi penduduk setinggan. Freeman menganggarkan, 'tidak lebih dari seperlima, mungkin sepersepuluh, peneroka di tanah itu mungkin dapat membeli "tanah yang mereka duduki.14 Tanah dijual pada harga $ 2.00 per ekar kecuali lebih dari satu orang menunjukkan minat." "- HMCHS

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Thomas Freeman mempunyai reputasi nasional untuk ketepatan dan kebolehpercayaan. Seorang pendatang Ireland yang pernah datang ke tanah jajahan pada tahun 1774, dia pernah bekerja untuk pemerintah sebelumnya, dan telah menarik perhatian pengukur utama George Washington dan Setiausaha Perbendaharaan Alexander Hamilton. Akibatnya Freeman mempunyai peranan penting dalam menetapkan Daerah Columbia. Freeman terlibat pada tahun 1808 sebagai ketua juruukur Wilayah Mississippi.
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 Semasa meninjau perbandaran dan jarak Freeman akan memperhatikan hartanah pilihan yang tidak ada pemohon - mudah ditentukan untuknya, bukan sahaja dia mempunyai tugas untuk melakukan banci tahun 1809, tetapi dia juga menjual kontrak penyewa sesuka hati. Ini memberi dia, dan dia sendiri, maklumat lengkap mengenai keberadaan penduduk dan tanah yang diinginkan. Ketika menghadiri penjualan, jika ditawarkan harta tanah pilihan yang tidak ada penawar, Freeman, akan, membeli tanah itu. Dia kemudian meletakkan wang pendahuluan minimum yang diperlukan dan suatu ketika kemudian mencari pembeli dan memindahkan hak milik dan kewajiban kepadanya. Seseorang boleh menganggap ada keuntungan peribadi untuk Surveyor Freeman. Ini nampaknya tidak menjadi masalah bagi pemerintah, kerana dia terus berfungsi selama bertahun-tahun di beberapa lokasi. Ketika Alabama menjadi sebuah negara pada tahun 1819, ketua juruukur, Jeneral John Coffee, menggantikannya. Coffee, yang telah menata kota Huntsville sebelumnya, berfungsi dalam pelantikannya dengan cara yang sama. Ini adalah negara baru, dan orang-orang ini membuat peraturan ketika mereka berjalan, dan, mungkin, itu dianggap sebagai sebahagian daripada tanggungjawab dan imbuhan normal juruukur.
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 Thomas Freeman memainkan peranan utama dalam penempatan Alabama dan Mississippi. Dia mendirikan Huntsville Meridian di mana semua tanah di utara Alabama diukur dan dijual. Ini adalah garis utama utara-selatan yang menetapkan, bersama dengan sempadan Tennessee timur-barat yang ditetapkan sebelumnya, penyerahan semua harta tanah. The Huntsville Meridian melalui Pemakaman Maple Hill di Huntsville, di mana Thomas Freeman dimakamkan pada 8 November 1821. Makamnya tetap tidak bertanda selama 170 tahun hingga 1999, ketika Tennessee Valley Society of Professional Land Surveyors mendirikan monumen untuk menghormatinya. Seorang penulis menyatakan, 'Hari ini, Freeman sangat dihormati kerana ketepatannya di lapangan.' "- HMCHS

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Thomas Freeman, yang membeli tanah seluas 8500 ekar. Orang ini bukan petani, dan tidak pernah berniat untuk menjadi satu! Dia adalah contoh utama spekulator yang merampas hampir separuh tanah yang ditawarkan." - HMCHS

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160Teks ​​Sejarah Penanda yang terletak di Hwy 231/431 selatan garis Tennessee: "Pada tahun 1809, Mejar Thomas Freeman, Wakil Juruukur AS, menetapkan penanda di sini di garis negara dan mula membuat tinjauan ke selatan menuju tengah negara. Garis ini, yang dikenali sebagai Huntsville Meridian, adalah rujukan untuk semua tinjauan harta tanah di Alabama Utara. Titik Permulaan, sekarang di tengah jalan raya, diset semula pada tahun 1977 oleh Alabama Society of Professional Land Surveyors. " - Indeks Penanda Sejarah Huntsville

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Pada 13 Disember 1808, Madison County diciptakan oleh proklamasi Gabenor Wilayah Mississippi Robert Williams. Dia juga memerintahkan Thomas Freeman untuk melakukan bancian, yang diselesaikan pada Januari 1809, menunjukkan 353 ketua keluarga, dengan 1.150 lelaki putih bebas, 723 wanita putih, berjumlah 2.223 orang kulit putih. Terdapat 332 budak. Thomas Freeman yang sama ini sebelumnya telah dilantik sebagai juruukur untuk Wilayah Mississippi dan, pada tahun 1807, menubuhkan Meridian Line, yang melalui Madison County, pada suhu 86 darjah, 34 minit dan 18 saat. " - Rakam

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160Tomas Freeman dilantik sebagai "Justice of the Peace pada 19 Disember 1808." - Rakam

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Gallatin, pada 15 November 1808, telah menulis Williams bahawa Presiden Jefferson menganggap sudah tiba masanya Gabenor mula melantik pegawai awam untuk daerah itu, yang belum teratur. Pada 11 Disember 1808, Williams, melalui surat, memohon kepada Setiausaha Negara untuk Hakim yang mempunyai bidang kuasa asal di Madison County dan menyatakan bahawa dia 'akan menghantar dari bandar Washington, Mississippi seorang pegawai yang aktif dan cerdas sebagai Sheriff, yang akan bertindak bersama-sama dengan Mejar Thomas Freeman kepada memastikan janji. '
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 Tahun 1808 adalah tahun yang sama dengan kerajaan persekutuan untuk menjual tanah di kawasan itu. Freeman diberi janji temu persekutuan untuk bertindak sebagai daftar dan pada Februari 1808, Freeman telah memproses 280 permohonan tanah. Dia mengesyorkan agar penjualan tanah dilakukan di Nashville, bukan di Huntsville, dan penjualan tanah pertama kemudian diadakan di Nashville bermula pada bulan Ogos, 1809. William Dickson adalah Pendaftar pertama Pejabat Tanah dan John Brahan adalah Penerima Awam pertama Wang.
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 Menjelang Ogos, 1809, Freeman, menulis dari kem juruukurnya di Flint River, memberitahu Gallatin bahawa dalam batasan apa yang akan menjadi Madison County, terdapat tiga kilang, mengisar jagung yang dibawa dari Jefferson County, Tennessee, sejauh 120 batu.
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160Dan perintis menjadi perintis, mereka juga tidak akan melakukan tanpa "semangat" mereka. Freeman mengatakan pada 25 Ogos 1808, bahawa kilang penyulingan akan beroperasi dalam beberapa hari. "- Rekod

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Thomas Freeman, juruukur wilayah, mungkin bersedia mencabut rambutnya setelah menyelesaikan tinjauannya ke seluruh Madison County pada bulan Mei 1809. Dia mendapati beberapa ratus keluarga tinggal secara haram di tanah Chickasaw. Dia mempunyai sebelum ini menulis Setiausaha Negara pada 4 Mac 1809 untuk memberitahunya bahawa dia telah mendapati bahawa Chickasaws akan menjual semua tanah mereka di Timur Sungai Elk dan utara dari garis Tennessee jika Presiden akan memindahkan semua peneroka kulit putih dari tanah di sebelah barat Elk Sungai. Freeman mencadangkan bahawa kawasan itu akan 'membuat County Madison yang berbentuk baik.'
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 Pada bulan Jun 1809, Freeman melaporkan bahawa beberapa ratus orang peneroka terpaksa berpindah dari rumah mereka ke Madison County? Surat dari Setiausaha Bendahari kepada Presiden menunjukkan bahawa Freeman memang menjalankan tugas ..
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 Askar digunakan untuk mengeluarkan 93 keluarga dari tanah Chickasaw yang bersebelahan dengan Madison County, seperti surat dari R. J. Meigs kepada pemangku Setiausaha Perang yang diungkapkan kemudian. Masalah masih ada, namun, ketika surat 29 Oktober 1809 dari Setiausaha Perbendaharaan kepada Presiden menyatakan bahawa seorang penuntut Yazoo bernama Michael Harrison telah berjanji untuk berpindah. Walau bagaimanapun, Harrison kemudian menafikannya dan kemudian meletakkan iklan yang memberi amaran kepada sesiapa sahaja tentang pembelian tanah yang dituntutnya. Surat 4 Mei 1810, bagaimanapun, dari Setiausaha Perang kepada Jeneral Wade Hampton menyatakan bahawa para peneroka akan disingkirkan oleh Spring ..
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 Dengan ledakan tanah yang berterusan, rekod menunjukkan bahawa beberapa pembeli pertama adalah LeRoy Pope, William P. Anderson dan James Jackson. Ketiganya membeli bahagian suku yang mengandungi Big Spring pada 25 Ogos 1809, dengan harga $ 23,50 per ekar atau $ 3,763.29. Kawasan yang sama hari ini, di pusat bandar Huntsville, akan berharga berjuta-juta. George Smith akan menjadi yang pertama membeli tanah di kawasan Pasar Baru, sementara Levi Hinds pertama di daerah Huntsville dan Charles Cabaniss di kawasan Hazel Green.
& # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 & # 160 Secara ironinya, kurang daripada 15 peratus peneroka asal membeli tanah. Walau bagaimanapun, hampir 24,000 ekar dijual pada Oktober 1809 dengan harga terkumpul $ 67,520. "- Rekod

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Kembali ke penjualan tanah 1809, harus diperhatikan bahawa Thomas Freeman, juruukur, terbukti menjadi spekulator dan juga juruukur. Dia adalah pembeli terbesar, memperoleh 22 bahagian. LeRoy Pope, Thomas Bibb, dan John Brahan berlari ke belakang dalam pengambilan tanah. Pharoah Roach, yang telah meninjau Range 2 East untuk Freeman, tidak memperoleh apa pun. " - Rakam

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160Telah diketahui bahawa Thomas Freeman membeli tanah di Madison County dan juga berunding dengan calon pembeli lain, memberikan mereka maklumat penting mengenai ciri-ciri dari pelbagai harta tanah. Kami tidak pasti bagaimana menafsirkan data yang terdapat dalam log ini tetapi dalam penjualan tanah pada 17 September 1814, terdapat lima orang yang berlainan yang disenaraikan sebagai "Penerima Thomas Freeman" dalam pembelian tanah. Dan empat lagi sifat mempunyai notasi yang sama di kemudian hari. - Barefield

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Pada 13 Disember 1808, Madison County diciptakan oleh pengisytiharan Gabenor Wilayah Mississippi.

Bagaimanapun, banci selesai pada Januari 1809 dan masih dalam catatan. " - Rankin

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Thomas Freeman juga juruukur untuk Wilayah, dan dialah yang menetapkan Huntsville Meridian pada 86 darjah, 34 menit, dan 18 saat untuk memberhentikan tanah di seluruh bahagian utara negara bagian Alabama .

& # 8226 & # 160 & # 160 "Thomas Freeman, juruukur, menjumpai pada tahun 1809 beberapa ratus keluarga yang tinggal di wilayah India di sebelah barat daerah. Dia membantu mengatur pemberhentian India baru untuk tanah di sebelah timur Sungai Elk sebagai pertukaran untuk menghilangkan semua putih peneroka di sebelah barat sungai itu.

Buku Cowart meringkaskan pembelian 1809 Freeman termasuk 35 bahagian tanah pada tahun 1809. Itu jauh lebih banyak daripada orang lain, tetapi dapat dimengerti, kerana Thomas Freeman adalah Juruukur Pemerintah yang meninjau seluruh daerah (kecuali sebahagian kecil di Range 2E yang disurvei oleh Pharoah Roach). Mr. Freeman memulakan tinjauan pada tahun 1807, dua tahun sebelum tanah itu ditawarkan untuk dijual, jadi dia mempunyai banyak masa untuk memilih bungkusan paling pilihan dan bertindak sebagai ejen untuk orang lain.

Keturunan Keluarga Freeman

Perkebunan abad ke-17 yang dikenali sebagai Martin's Brandon terletak di tebing selatan Sungai James kira-kira dua belas batu di hulu dari Jamestown. Ia dikenali hari ini sebagai ladang Brandon dan masih merupakan ladang yang berfungsi. John Martin memulakan ladang sebelum 1619 dan mengimport penyewa sendiri. Tujuh puluh tiga penyewa Martin's Brandon terbunuh semasa Pembunuhan 1622 dan Martin menyerah pada penyelesaiannya. 40 Ketika Bridges Freeman dan James Sleight mengemukakan petisyen di mahkamah umum agar berpindah dari Martin Brandon pada 21 Mei 1627, perkebunan telah merosot selama empat tahun. James Sleight muncul dalam banci tahun 1625 yang masih hidup di Virginia Colony. Pada masa itu umurnya diberi 42. 41

Kita tahu bahawa Thomas dan Frances Freeman membaptiskan seorang anak lelaki bernama John pada tahun 1624. John Freeman, Pensiunan Diraja, pada tahun 1664, memberikan umurnya 40 tahun, yang sangat sesuai dengan catatan paroki. Pencen Diraja mesti diberikan untuk layanan setia kepada monarki Stuart di pihak John Freeman, mungkin kerana dia telah terluka semasa Perang Saudara Inggeris. Bagaimanapun, dia berkahwin dengan baik. Alice, anak perempuan Sir John Keeling, Ketua Hakim Inggris pada tahun 1665, adalah jenis pasangan yang akan membantu Freeman bangkit dalam masyarakat.
Sepupu Inggeris kami adalah keturunan William Freeman dan isterinya, dan John Freeman dan isterinya, Alice Keeling anak perempuan Sir John Keeling, Ketua Hakim Inggeris.

Pada 25 November 1693, John Clifford dari New Poquosin membuat baki "untuk menantu saya John Freeman dan Henry Freeman dan anak perempuan saya Anna Freeman" dan harta peribadi termasuk rapiernya untuk "dibahagi sama rata antara isteri saya dan tiga anaknya di atas . " 85 Malangnya, Mr. Clifford tidak memberikan nama pertama isterinya dalam kehendaknya. Dengan mengandaikan bahawa kehendaknya disalin dengan betul ke dalam buku wasiat, dan mengetahui penggunaan abad ke-17, isteri John Clifford sebelumnya telah menikah dengan seorang Freeman dan mempunyai dua anak lelaki dan seorang anak perempuan oleh perkahwinan pertamanya. "Menantu lelaki" pada abad ke-17 biasanya digunakan untuk menggambarkan anak tiri. Kami tahu bahawa Henry Freeman, jr. meninggal sebelum 24 April 1676, selamat oleh seorang janda, tetapi tidak tahu adakah dia mempunyai anak yang masih hidup. Henry Freeman, Sr. yang meninggal pada tahun 1679/80, selamat oleh seorang janda dan seorang anak perempuan. Robert Freeman dari York County, yang meninggal antara 23 April 1698 dan 24 Januari 1698/99, mempunyai seorang anak perempuan, tetapi tidak dikekalkan oleh pasangan. 86 The best inference from the data is that John and Henry Freeman were the children of Henry Freeman, Jr. and Martha, his wife, who remarried after Henry's death in 1676. The Register of Charles City Parish, York County, Virginia was published in 1932 by the Virginia State Library. The Register shows that Henry Freeman, Jr. and Martha had the following children baptized: (1) John 5 July 1671 (2) Henry, 20 November 1675 and (3) Anna, 30 April 1676. 87

Garland Hopkins asserts that James Freeman, who died 23 January 1687/88 in New Kent County, Virginia, was the father of John Freeman, Sr. of Surry County, Virginia, our common known ancestor. 90 However, no documentary proof of this relationship has been found. In fact, there is nothing to document that James Freeman had any children whatsoever.

Former Rice religion professor, legendary TSU debate coach Thomas Freeman dies at 100

Thomas Freeman, the legendary Texas Southern University debate coach who was the first African American professor to teach in the School of Humanities at Rice, has died at the age of 100.

Thomas Freeman posed with the faculty of Rice University’s Department of Religious Studies in a photograph from the 1987 Campanile. L to R: Sylvia Louie, Niels Nielsen, Elizabeth Heitman, Werner Kelber, Clyde Manschreck, Thomas Freeman, Warren Frisina, George Rupp (President of Rice University at the time), Don Benjamin and James Sellers. “Religious Studies Department, Rice University.” (1987) Rice University: https://hdl.handle.net/1911/76275.

Freeman, who died June 6, coached TSU’s award-winning debate team — which he also founded in 1949 — for 60 years before retiring in 2013. His reputation inspired Denzel Washington and the filmmakers behind “The Great Debaters,” which chronicled an important story in the history of black debate competitions, to visit TSU for pointers from one of the nation’s most prominent debate coaches.

Freeman taught religion courses at Rice from 1972 until 1994. He designed his own courses, which started out small but quickly grew in popularity. In a 2012 interview, Freeman laughed as he talked about becoming a lecturer at a university that was founded as a segregated institution and didn’t admit black students until 1965.

“(W)hen I walked across the campus, (William) Marsh (Rice) must have been turning over in his grave,” Freeman said. “He didn’t want a black student there, and here’s a black teacher. … Now it’s fortunate that succeeding generations saw the error in that kind of thinking, and went to the forefront so that blacks could attend.”

Freeman also noted that one of his TSU students, Robert Bell Jr., later became Rice’s first black administrator and its first full-time black faculty member. Freeman remained involved at Rice even after he stopped teaching in the 1990s. In 2016, he and his wife attended the 50th anniversary Celebration of Black Undergraduate Life at Rice.

Freeman was born June 27, 1919, in Richmond, Virginia. He earned his bachelor’s degree in English from Virginia Union University and a second bachelor’s degree in divinity from Andover Newton Seminary in Massachusetts. He received his doctorate in homiletics from the University of Chicago in 1948, but Freeman was already teaching and preaching by then.

The first class Freeman taught was in 1947: a religion course at Morehouse College in Atlanta, where one of his students was a young Martin Luther King Jr. In 1949, he joined the faculty at TSU, where his students included such up-and-coming political talents as Barbara Jordan and Mickey Leland. In 1972, he was recruited to teach at Rice.

In addition to teaching full time at TSU, part time at Rice and part time at Houston Community College, Freeman also preached on a weekly basis, serving as the pastor of Mt. Horem Baptist Church in the Fifth Ward for 69 years.

In 2009, the TSU Board of Regents named one of the university’s newest academic units after its longtime professor and coach: the Thomas F. Freeman Honors College. And in 2019, TSU celebrated Freeman’s 100th birthday with a brunch that supported his beloved debate team.

Freeman won countless awards throughout his career and was widely recognized as an educational, religious and community leader throughout the city. He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Clarice Estell, three children, several grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Urusan pengebumian belum selesai. Donations may be made in Freeman’s honor to the Dr. Thomas F. Freeman Memorial Fund, which will support and advance the TSU debate team.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this article misidentified the first African American professor to teach classes at Rice. Kennard Reed Jr., who joined the faculty as a visiting professor of mathematics in 1965 and taught for one year, was the first.

The Surname Freeman
Free is the term used to identify a man that was free-born, as opposed to those born as serfs during the feudal system of the middle ages. It is derived from Old English freo = free. Freeman, Freebody are variations. Cognate forms include Frei, Freier, Freyer, Frey, Freimann, Freymann (German) Frig, Frigge, Frige, Frie, Friehe, Freye, Friemann (Low German) Frey, Frei, Freyman, Freiman (Swedish)

Freeman in gaelic is MacAnSaior?

The Freeman Family of Oxfordshire, from whom the Freeman's of Virginia descended, were evidently close kin of the Freeman's of Essex and Northampton Counties in England. Indeed the arms of the Freeman's of London, Wiltshire, Herefordshire, and Yorkshire, as well, indicate a relationship to exist among all these Freeman's.


Thomas Freeman - History

Colonel Thomas Roe Freeman raised a mounted regiment for the Confederate cause in the south-central area of Missouri early in the war. He calculated that he could do the most damage to the northerners by striking at their tenuous road connection between their big base at Rolla, Phelps County, MO (and also a terminus then of a railroad from St. Louis) and their exposed base miles to the southwest at Springfield. Therefore, for most of the war Colonel Freeman and Colonel William O. Coleman (who commanded another regiment from this same area) conducted a guerrilla war against the Union troops and northern sympathizers along that stretch of road in west Phelps County and in Pulaski County, MO and the land south to the Arkansas border. The Union authorities were forced to keep at least a regiment of their own calvary in this area for most of the war for that reason, and there were many skirmishes in this hilly, wooded countyside.

A lady named Jean Tobey, a descendant of Freeman's, was kind enough to allow me to place a head and shoulders photograph of Thomas Freeman in my 1863 book on page 148. I mention Colonel Freeman and his men a great deal in that book (at least ten times according to the index entry for him), which in itself is sort of a war record. I am working on the final volume of the series about 1864 and 1865, which also will mention Freeman in several places.

Ray Bradbury, Jr. of Rolla wrote in his "Civil War in Phelps County" on page 14 that Freeman was an associate judge of the Phelps County Court before the war, and an 1863 tax list of Phelps County shows that Freeman had 240 acres at the southeast corner of Phelps County near the intersection of Crawford, Phelps, and Dent Counties. Bradbury also wrote that after the war Thomas Freeman returned to Phelps County, but later moved to Neosho, Newton County, in the southwest corner of Missouri. Neosho was a strong southern community during the war, and I suppose the colonel felt safer there. In fact, Thomas Freeman's memoirs are kept at Neosho, I suppose in some historical society there. Freeman served as a commander for the southern cause from 1861 through 1865.


Freemantown Research Guide

Thomas Freeman and Henrietta Freeman, who were not related, were married in August 1846 or 1847 by Jacob Freeman "a colored minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church at 12 miles west of Milledgeville in Jones County State of Georgia." Both were enslaved by John F. Freeman and lived on his plantation. John R. Freeman stated that &ldquohe was raised with Thos Freeman and got him from [his] uncle.&rdquo[1] At the time of the marriage, Thomas was approximately 23 years old and Henrietta about 15.

John R. Freeman and his wife Mary Hamilton Freeman arrived in Floyd County in the early 1850s, apparently bringing Thomas, Henrietta, and other enslaved people with them. John and Mary Freeman were fairly prosperous farmers, who by 1860 owned over 160 acres of farmable land, at least 450 acres of wooded territory, and 50 slaves, including Thomas, Henrietta, and their six oldest children.

In 1864, General William Tecumseh Sherman&rsquos army was advancing into northwestern Georgia. John R. Freeman moved south before the occupation, leaving Thomas Freeman near Rome, in Floyd County, Georgia, where John R. Freeman operated ferries.[2]

In 1862 the Union had begun to enlist Black men in military service. After the 1 Jan 1863 Emancipation Proclamation freed all those enslaved in Confederate territory, recruitment was extended. During the Atlanta campaign of May-September 1864, the enrollment of Black soldiers began in occupied areas of northwestern Georgia under authority granted to Colonel Ruben D. Mussey, the Nashville, Tennessee-based commissioner for the Organization of U.S. Colored Troops in the Department of the Cumberland. From July to September 1864, the 44th U.S. Colored Infantry was stationed in Rome, for recruiting purposes. By late summer the 44th USCI contained some 800 Black enlisted men[3], including Thomas Freeman, who enlisted in Company I on 30 June 1864. The unit was commanded by Colonel Lewis Johnson, who was white.

By order of Gen. Vandever, Thomas Freeman remained on duty as a blacksmith in Rome during July and August 1864, then joined his company. On the morning of October 13, most of the 44th were doing garrison duty in Dalton, Georgia, when advance units of the Army of Tennessee, commanded by Confederate General John Bell Hood, unexpectedly converged on the town. Hood vowed to take no prisoners. Although Col. Johnson claimed that his Black troops displayed the "greatest anxiety to fight," he surrendered to Hood and quickly secured paroles for himself and the 150 or so other white troops attached to the garrison. The regiment's 600 African American enlisted men suffered a harsher fate. Some were re-enslaved, while others were sent to work on fortification projects in Alabama and Mississippi. Many ended the war as prisoners in Columbus and Griffin, Georgia, where they were released during May 1865 in what one of them described as a "sick, broken down, naked, and starved" condition.[4]

Thomas Freeman was among those taken prisoner. John R. Freeman, then living in southwest Georgia, &ldquoin some way found out Thomas Freeman had been a prisoner of war and had been left very sick near Griffin Ga.&rdquo[5] John R. Freeman arranged to have Thomas Freeman transported to his own home in Meriwether County, and arranged for medical care for &ldquomany months.&rdquo Thomas Freeman, who had been &ldquoa very stout able bodied slave&rdquo before imprisonment was now &ldquoa perfect physical reck.&rdquo[6] In late 1865 John R. Freeman and Thomas Freeman returned to Floyd County, where both of them lived out their lives.[7] In April 1866 Thomas Freeman received $101.20 back pay from his military service.

After the war Thomas Freeman continued to work as a blacksmith and farmed. Census records and documents related to the settlement of his estate indicate that he and Henrietta reared at least 12 children born between about 1859 and 1874. In 1870 the family lived in the racially mixed Texas Valley area, district 1120, near Mead and Elizabeth Freeman and their family. Other Black families in the area include Albert and Adaline Horn, Squire and Cylla Smith, and Frank and Martha Benton.[8]

On 9 October 1871, Thomas and Mead Freeman, who is believed to be Thomas&rsquos father[9], purchased one half of lot no. 4 (80 acres in Floyd County&rsquos district 15, section 4) from G.B. Gentry for $130. The 1880 Census shows Thomas and Henrietta Freeman still in District 1120, then called Flatwoods, with three sons (Mingo, Lindsey, and Thomas) and two daughters (Louisa and Fredonia). Thomas, 54, is a blacksmith Henrietta, 48, keeps house. Living nearby are Mead and Elizabeth (Lizzie) Freeman, with their grandchildren Angeline, Hillyer, and Lydia, and nieces Jessie, Lila, and Hattie. Thomas&rsquo and Henrietta&rsquos daughter Josephine, now married, lives close by with her husband Charles Rodgers and their young children. The area is still racially mixed, with as many white families as Black living nearby. Black families include Tom and Leah Selman, and Cato and Mary Clemmons.[10]

The Dependent and Disability Pension Act, which provided pensions for Union Army veterans who had served at least 90 days and who were unable to perform manual labor, whether or not the cause of their disability was related to their service in the Civil War, was passed by the United States Congress in 1890. Soon after, Thomas Freeman began the process of applying for a pension. He was required to travel to Dalton, where he was examined on 14 May 1890. He stated that &ldquowhile in U.S. service [he] was taken sick with measles & was sick seven or eight months &hellip I am still disabled &hellip from doing manual labor&rdquo. Examiners found that at the age of 67 he was 6&rsquo1&rdquo, weighed 158 pounds, and had a normal temperature. Their description of his ailments, including rheumatism, lung and kidney disease, and vision disorders from the bout with measles, is graphic, with the summary &ldquoThere is considerable emaciation and debility.&rdquo They rated his disability at 12/18ths, entitling him to a pension of $12 per month, beginning around March 1892.[11]

Thomas Freeman died on 18 April 1893. His family physician, Dr. Archie J. Higginbotham, lived about six miles from the Freeman residence and had visited Thomas Freeman &ldquoalmost daily&rdquo during the year before his death. John R. Freeman &ldquoattended the funeral of the said Thomas Freeman and saw him buried,&rdquo[12] presumably in the Freemantown Cemetery, where his Federal headstone is placed.

When Thomas Freeman died, he owned 380 acres of land in Floyd County, appraised at a value of $1,000. His estate also included livestock (2 mules, 3 cows, 1 ox, 3 yearlings, and 14 hogs) farrier, blacksmith, and carpenter tools a wagon, buggy, and various household furnishings. He left no will, and the land was divided by lot among his widow, his children (including the heirs of a daughter and son who had predeceased him), and, at the request of the heirs, Thomas&rsquos brother, Sanford Freeman. The widow&rsquos lot was valued at $175 the others at $75. Henrietta Freeman was also granted money and property necessary for 12 months support by the Floyd County Court of Ordinary in its 1893 August Term.

In May 1893 Henrietta Freeman applied for a Federal Widow&rsquos Pension. Over the next six years Sanford Freeman, Frank Bentin, John R. Freeman, and Mary Freeman [after John R. Freeman's death in 1896] supported her petitions, confirming her identity, the facts of her marriage to Thomas Freeman, and that she had not remarried since Thomas Freeman&rsquos death. Henrietta was granted a pension of $24 per quarter, but later petitions for greater sums were denied. These petitions provide some detail about Henrietta Freeman&rsquos lifestyle.

In 1894 her affidavit states that &ldquoshe owns twenty five acres of land in Floyd County Georgia &hellip That said land is worth not exceeding five dollars per acre as lands are now selling in the neighborhood. That she also owns one horse about fifteen years old worth twenty five dollars. That she also owns three cows worth ten dollars each. That she owns two beds and covering, one table, four chairs and cooking utensils all worth twenty dollars. That she also owns one hog, ten hens, one plow and a small lot of farming tools all of the value of ten dollars and that further than as above set forth she owns no property, real, personal or mixed. That she has no one upon whom she can legally call for support and no one is bound for her support. That she is dependent upon her labor for her support. That she has planted upon her said land three acres in cotton, two acres in corn, one half acre in potatoes and about one fourth of an acre in garden produce. That the produce from the lands planted as herein set forth are her only sources of income and that said produce when marketed will not exceed fifty dollars annually.&rdquo She is also said to have three or four grandchildren to take care of.[13]

The next year, in 1895, she repeats that she &ldquohas no means of income other than her labor, that she has cultivated about five acres of land. The income from this and her gardening and her milch cow is her means of support, and is her only income from all sources.&rdquo The 1895 tax on her land and personal property was $217.[14]

By 1899 she reports that her income is &ldquonot over fifteen dollars per year from all the property now presented by her that [she] &hellip is without other means of support than her own labor, except the pension of $24 per quarter which she is drawing from the United States Government&rdquo. In 1900 she petitions that she has no income whatever aside from her pension of $24 per quarter.[15]

The U.S. Census picks up the story, although in less detail. In 1900 Henrietta is 72 years old unmarried daughter Fredonia and son Lindsey share the home, as do grandchildren Carlton Wily and Mary Price.[16] Sons Tom Freeman and his wife Ida, Mingo and wife Frances, Nick, and daughter Henrietta and her husband Sie Montgomery all live nearby on land inherited from their father. Two children are known to have died before Thomas in 1893. Four others &ndash Essex, Josephine, Fanny, and Louisa &ndash have not been located in the 1900 census.

By 1910 more of the Freeman children have scattered or died. Henrietta is still living on her land, with granddaughter Beatrice Freeman (daughter of Thomas and Ida Montgomery Freeman).[17] Only Josephine Rogers, Mingo and Frances Freeman, Essex Freeman&rsquos widow Hannah, and Henrietta and Gib Montgomery are nearby. Thomas and Ida Freeman are a little farther away, perhaps not on the family land, but still in the district. Sanford Freeman&rsquos widow Susan is nearby, as well. But Fredonia has married Oliver Perry and moved to Tennessee Essex has died and Nick will pass away in July and the whereabouts of the other three children, Lindsey, Fanny, and Louisa, is unknown. White families such as Mart and Sallie Duke and Henry and Mary Redmond still live nearby, as do related Black families, including Cicero and Dora Sanford and Pleas and Bertha Jones.

Several sources, however, make it clear that by this time the name Freemantown is well established. In November 1910 Henrietta Freeman and her children Mingo Freeman, Josephine Rodgers, Henrietta Montgomery, and Fredonia Perry confirm a lost deed from Thomas Freeman to the Trustees of Freemans Chapel Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States of America. In a 1949 document describing his 1909 marriage to Luna Presley, Henry Grady Terrell recollects &ldquoDriving to Mountain Springs Methodist Church at the foot of Lavender Mountain and just off old Bryant Gap Road &hellip At the home of George Rolland and Sally Vaughn Presley. From there took Luna Presley &hellip And at midafternoon we drove to Freeman Town, then to Redmond Gap Road and drove along the fence toward Rome. To the Rev. William Cooper's home which was about one mile west of Berry Schools an[d] about one half of a mile north of the present Battey State Hospital, and united in Holy matrimony.&rdquo[18] In the 1910 census, Luna's father Roland Presley and his second wife Ella, who are white, are enumerated on the same page as Henrietta Freeman&rsquos daughter Josephine Rodgers and her sister-in-law Susan Freeman.

The first sale of Freeman land to the Berry Schools occurred in 1916, when Essex Freeman&rsquos widow, Hannah Montgomery Freeman, sold her portion of Lot 20 for $1,450.[19] By 1920 the impact of the school is becoming significant. School Superintendent Henry Grady Hamrick, his wife Ethel, son, and three Berry students are practically next door to Henrietta Freeman and her granddaughter Beatrice Freeman.[20] Of the children, only Mingo and Francis Freeman are close. Henrietta and Gib Montgomery are in an adjacent district and Hannah Freeman lives in Rome. Fredonia Perry still lives in Tennessee and Henrietta and Gib Montgomery have moved to Michigan. Burials in the Freeman Chapel cemetery will continue for a few years[21], but the end of Freemantown is near.

On 21 March 1923, five months before her death, Henrietta Freeman sold the 25 acres she inherited from Thomas Freeman to the Berry Schools for $800 . Fredonia Perry sold the same year. The other children and the heirs of those who had died would hold on to their land for a few more years, finally selling the last of the land in 1926. The places of residence of the sellers include Rome, Georgia Arlington, Tennessee Detroit and Seattle.

Henrietta Freeman died on 17 August 1923, of heart disease, at the age of 95. Her son Mingo Freeman gave information for her death certificate, including the names of her parents, William and Dista Freeman. She was buried at Freemantown Cemetery, on 19 August 1923.[22]
