Thank you to all who remember him!
Charles E. Freeman

Charles E. Freeman parents were Joel 'M. and Susan Jane (Moore) Freeman. The father was born in Vern-ont in 1818 and being one of a family of 13 children, he was obliged to begin work at a very early age and turn over his pay to his father's creditors until he was 18 years old... It
was in Hartford. Conn., on July 4, 1845, that he was married to Susan Jane Moore, who was born in that city in 1829... he followed various lines of work until 1864. On January 1, that year he enlisted in Company E, 12th Regt. Wis. Vol. Inf., and went out to fight for the Union. It was the last phase of his earthly career, for he never returned home but died in a hospital nearAtlanta, Ga.,

in July, 1864, at the age of about 46 years. His wife continued her residence in Delton rearing and educating her children. They had six in all, four of whom were living at the time of the father's death. The six were: Charles E., of Menomonie; Henry Rollin, who died in infancy; Rollin Henry, now of Miami,Fla.; Alice M., who is Mrs. Guy Pierce of Kilbourn City, Wis.; Frank, deceased,and Altha, who died young. The mother, Mrs. Susan Jane Freeman, lived to the good old age of past 80 years, when she died at Kilbourn City, Wis.

Charles E.Freeman acquired his early education ...At the end of that time he entered Eastman's Business College at Poughke...He then went to Madison, Wis., and entered the law school that is now a part of the university. He was a member of the class.that was graduated in 1871...It was in 1872 that he came to the city of Menomonie and engaged in the practice of law...For many years Mr. Freeman has taken a keen in-
terest in-the history of Dunn County and has spent both time and money in re-search work..As a historian he possesses a keen critical faculty,-perhaps due to his legal training-being quick to detect errors in previous statements, and being careful and thorough in his own methods of work. His position as attorney for The Knapp, Stout & Co.Company gave him a close insight into the affairs of that great lumber concern which was for more than half a century the mainspring of Dunn County life and activity, and the larger part of the article on that company published in Chapter X of this volume came originally from his pen. In it he has corrected ... " of his careful historical work is the article on" High School Sites" in Chapter XXI, and, in addition, many other articles on various subjects which are contained in this volume owe their accuracy and reliability to his careful revision...He has a comfortable residence at 1103 Eighth Street.

He was married June 1, 1871, at Kilbourn City, Wis., to Mary E. Barlow, who was born at Delevan, Wis., July 21, 1846. She was the daughter of Stephen S. Barlow and Ann M. Barlow. The Barlows were pioneer settlers of Wisconsin, they having come here before Wisconsin became a state. Mr. Barlow was well known throughout the state. He was its attorney general from 1869 to January, 1873.

Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. Freeman became the parents of two children, Hessie B. and Charles Rollin. Hessie B., born Nov. 13, 1878, .. from a commercial college in Minneapolis. Charles Rollin, born Nov. 27, 1880, was graduated from the Menomonie High School with the class of 1899. In 1901 he entered the law department of the Wisconsin State University at Madi- son, from which he was graduated with the class of 1905...

I wanted to let you know that I submitted an edit for this person's memorial. She was born in Jackson Township, Burnett County, Wisconsin -- not in Jackson County, Wisconsin.

Hi - I sent you some notes on John C Hastings via edit tab for Harvey Hastings' page.

I forgot to mention, but that surname was often also spelled Haistings.

Harvey Hastings
Hi - I will see if I have any of them in trees etc...I would imagine all are buried in Adams county IL but not sure.

I would say since it says John C Hastings, John B probably is the wrong man.

Those come up as hints on Ancestry and people tend to add to their trees, and once on Ancestry if it's a mistake it goes on forever, people keep adding, etc.

I'll try & look into it some. There were 2 or 3 branches of Hastings in Adams county around that time.

Suggested Corrections

Over the past three months, I have been uploading over 2400 photos to Evergreen Cemetery in Menomonie. Most of the memorials I added a pix to have been yours. I must have sent in over 300 suggested changes to correct dates, add middle initials and names and add military inscriptions. So far, I donít think Iíve received even one email that a suggestion has been accepted or declined. Do you check your file for these? If not, it must be a waste of time for me to send them. Maybe I should simply add the pix and forget the rest.

Charles E Freeman
I thought you might like to know I posted a picture of Charles E Freeman on his memorial - it is from the book you quote from so extensively above.

You also, above, give thanks to people who have added pictures and stories. That's why I wonder why you haven't added any of the biographical stories I offered (through edits) from the book you quote above to their respective memorials.

Would you like me to edit them so they are not so long?
Would you like just the facts and not the flowery prose from the 1920s?
I believe you can just copy and paste them to their bio space so it is not much trouble.

Any response would be appreciated.
