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...

Patricia Zeis
Good evening,
I'm related to Patricia Zeis,
Find A Grave Memorial# 158759727

She's a 2nd cousin 1x removed. I was wondering where you got her DOB from but not death ? And do you have time to take a photo of her parents headstones, and hers also if she's there.
I have found a Patricia Zeis but different date of birth,
not sure if that link will work here.

Anyways, I'd like info if you can provide.
