Tombstone Tuesday - 19 January 2010
My g-g-g-g-grandfather, Isaac FREEMAN, native of Holland, Revolutionary War soldier, b: 12 August 1755. Death date is in dispute: the tombstone says 9 January 1841, and that he was 82 (making him born in about 1759), but other records indicate his death as 1 January 1841, in Stark, Herkimer County, New York. Either way, it was 169 years ago this month. His burial location is unknown (I welcome any help on that). Photo from the DAR application of his g-granddaughter, Cora E. PRESTON DAVIS. His wife was Marion/Meriam GALLUP. While I have been unable to locate the tombstone for myself, I am grateful that Mrs. Davis has done so (I only wish that information - the cemetery - was included in the DAR application).
