Julius Freeman buys land.

On 21 March 1898, Louisa M. Daniel sold Julius F. Freeman a 125-acre tract called the Arky Gardner land in Gardners township. Freeman paid her $500.

Freeman married Eliza Daniel (or Daniels), daughter of Amos and Olive Daniel, in 1873. Was Louisa her kin?

  1. This is wonderful! I’ve often wondered when the Freeman’s started owning land in the Wilson County area, this may not have been the first parcel, but it’s the earliest evidence of land ownership I believe I’ve seen so far. Lisa, you do terrific work and I am SO appreciative of all you do.
