Census Sunday~Jesse Freeman, 1850, Chesterfield County, SC
Jesse Freeman and Sarah Jane Davis were married about 1826. Together they had 10 or 11 children; nine children are listed in the 1850 Chesterfield County Census.
Sarah Jane Davis Freeman is my 3rd great grand aunt. She and her husband Jesse along with the children are listed here in the 1850 Census.1
The family unit consisted of the following children plus two daughters not shown – Sarah Ann and Mary Ann, both of whom were married in 1850 and out of the household.
Note: Sarah Ann Freeman, Jesse and Sarah Jane’s daughter married John D. Odom. Her tombstone at Bay Springs Baptist Church Cemetery shows a birth date of 14 July 1827, Thus, the Sarah A. Freeman, age 3, above is most likely a granddaughter of Jesse Freeman, Sr.
It is reported that Jesse Freeman, age 12 above, enlisted into the Civil War and died during the War. As of today, this has not been proven. There are many trees on-line, some with dates for his death. The only problem is that there is NO SOURCE. Some even show that he served in the 21st SCV; again no proof.
Sarah Jane Freeman died sometime after 1870; Jesse Freeman died in July 1881. After, Sarah Jane’s death, Jesse remarried to a Mary LNU. .
When Jesse Freeman died; his daughters Mary Ann Freeman Wadsworth and her husband, Louis H. Wadsworth, Effie Freeman Purvis and her husband, Stephen D. Purvis filed a Bill of Complaint against the surviving heirs. 2
The said Jessie Freeman directed all property to be sold. He failed to appoint an Executor or Executrix. Louis H. Wadsworth and Stephen D. Purvis have been sworn and received their Letters of Administration. The estate, 400 acres of land, was sold and distributed between the heirs.
