Freeman Families of Northern Arkansas

If you are truly a Freeman researcher, welcome
If you are just collecting names to add to your websites in competition with your rivals, go somewhere else to collect your names.

It should be noted here that I AM NOT an authority on the
Freeman Families and get most of my information from census,
marriage and cemetery records. Reading microfilm records is not
the easiest thing to read. Sometimes the writing is so faint or
so badly written that I cannot read it and must "guess" at the
wording but try to put a question mark after the word so that
it can be verified later.
So, if you have any corrections or additions, please let me know
and I will try my best to make changes.
REMEMBER......PATIENCE is a virtue.
Genealogy, as you well know, goes on and on and on and on.
Census records are only about 80% accurate.
Tombstone records are sometimes wrong
Death certificates are the LEAST RELIABLE source of information

NOTE- NOTE - NOTE - NOTE
Information received from Gwen McLaughlin states the following:
She has found "documentation that Lazarus Freeman filed to receive
an inheritance from a Moses Freeman in Madison Co. N.C. The
document was dated 1859 and was filed in the Madison Co. Courthouse
The Probate record for that Moses Freeman states that Lazarus was
the son of William Freeman who was a deceased son of Moses Freeman".
(end quotes).
The document that she has is a Power of Attorney signed by Lazarus
Freeman (in Newton Co.) giving an attorney in Madison Co. N.C. the
Power of Attorney to collect his inheritance from Moses Freeman.
The second document that she has is the Probate Record of said
Moses Freeman that stated Lazarus Freeman to be the son of said
Moses Freeman's deceased son William.
This proves that Lazarus Freeman (Newton Co. AR) was not the son of
Isaac and Spicy Freeman but the son of William Freeman.
Since it was legend of the Arkansas Freemans that Lazarus and Rhody
Freeman were married and also cousins, she speculates that Rhoda,
not Lazarus was the child of Isaac and Spicy Freeman. That would
account for the stories of Arkansas Freemans being descendants of
Isaac and Spicy.
Mr. Granville Ross who wrote the wonderful book " Ross and Kin"
stated he thought Lazarus Freeman to be the son of Isaac Freeman
but Mr. Ross, unfortunately, died of cancer before his research was
completed. Granville's widow, Vera Dean-Ross has contributed greatly
to the Genealogy World.
If any of you are interested, the book "Ross and Kin" may be
printed again, so let me know if you want a copy and I will pass
your request to the person involved.
Am going to ask Gwen to send me copies of these documents and see
if she will give me permission to scan them and put them on this
website.
Gwen McLaughlin's Freeman line goes like this:
Aaron Freeman married to Mary Bentley.
...Moses Freeman married to ? Fanny Ball
.....William Freeman married to ? maybe Anne Cathey
.......Lazarus Freeman married to Rhoda Freeman
..........Aaron Freeman married to Paulina" Pearly" Brown
Since I am not an authority on the Freeman Families, I added the
notes and DID NOT change how I had these people listed. Was afraid
I might get things mixed up (14 January 2004).
