It’s Family Time~Jesse and Ann Freeman

Its-Family-Time2
Jesse Freeman, son of Jesse and Sarah Jane Davis Freeman was born in 1838-1840 based on his reported age of 12 (1850) and 20 (1860) in these two censuses.

Shortly after the census was enumerated and maybe before the Civil War, Jesse married a young lady by the given name Ann and to this union was born  a son Jesse A. Freeman in 1862.

I believe that Jesse A. is really Jesse Coleman Freeman (1862-15 May 1951).

At the outbreak of the Civil War it’s almost certain that Jesse Freeman enlisted into one of the local units. Minnie Sanders Rivers in her Rivers History (The Rivers Family: of Chesterfield County, South Carolina. Handwritten. unpublished: n.p., 1929) states that Jesse died about 1863. His absence from the household in 1870 provides indirect evidence that he did not return from the War. Also Ann Freeman re-marriage in 1875 provides additional evidence of his possible demise.

85. Jesse; b. 1838; d. abt, 1863; in service in C.S.A. War; m. 1860,
Ann _______; b. S.C. 1845; d._____. Issue:
1. Jesse A. Freeman, b. 1862. No further record.


After an exhaustive search no record had been found for Jesse service in the Civil War; but Ann Freeman and her son, Jesse A. Freeman are enumerated in the 1870 Census. 

1870 CENSUS: Cole Hill, Chesterfield County, South Carolina; Roll:  M593_1491; Image: 91; Family History Library Film: 552990, Page 283A; Line 3, Dwelling 101, Family 101; Ann FREEMAN, female, age 25, born in SC and J. A. FREEMAN, male, age 8, born in SC.

Finding what happen to Jesse during the Civil War has been quite problematic. I found several entries that could possible be our Jesse Freeman.
  • Jesse Freeman is not listed in "Broken Fortunes" SC Dead in CSA Service 1861-1865, Randolph W. Kirkland, Jr.
  • At https://www.fold3.com/image/20/73570085 there is a listing for a J. FREEMAN from Chesterfield, SC. This J. FREEMAN is in Co. B, 2nd Batt'n South Carolina Sharp Shooters, appointed 2nd  Corporal  30 August 1862. Enlisted  Jan 8, 1862 by Capt. B. T. Davis for 3 years.
  • There is a Corporal Jesse FREEMAN in the Company E, 21st South Carolina Infantry, Film Number M381 roll 11 listed in the National Park Service Civil War Solders and Sailors System Database; http://www.itd.nps.gov/cwss/soldiers.htm
  • Johnson Hagood does not show Jesse Freeman as a member of Co. E. 21st SCVI in his book "Memoirs if the War of Secession" pages 402 and 403.
  • Freeman, Jesse
    REGIMENT NAME: 2nd Regiment, South Carolina Cavalry
    SIDE:Confederate
  • Freeman, Jesse
    REGIMENT NAME: 4th Regiment, South Carolina Infantry
    SIDE:Confederate
  • Freeman, Jesse
    REGIMENT NAME: 21st Regiment, South Carolina Infantry
    SIDE:Confederate
    ALTERNATE NAME: J./Freeman
  • J. Freeman, age 19
    http://www.fold3.com/image/#20|83102041 , One muster card of 17 shows his name Jerry. I think this is Jesse. This soldier was taken prisoner on 16 June 1864. His records show no further evidence of him or what happen to him. But to bolter this belief we have:
  • Freeman, Jesse, 21, Lieutenant killed at Petersburg, Virginia June 24, 1864. Historical Sketch & Roster The SC 21st Infantry Regiment, By John V. Rigdon, © 2005 Eastern Digital Resources, Published by: Eastern Digital Resources, Cartersville, GA 30120, page 78.
  • Jesse Freeman Killed
Jesse, no doubt died in the Civil war, the question is When, Where and How?

About 1875, Ann Freeman, widow of Jesse Freeman, married Joseph Hall.  Joseph and Ann moved from Chesterfield to Marlboro County.

In July 1881, her ex father-in-law, Jesse Freeman, Sr., passed away. In October 1881 the surviving heirs divided into two groups file a “Bill of Complain” in the Court system against each other.  Ann Hall wife of Joseph hall is named as a Distributee of this estate.
  • II. That the said Jessie Freeman left surviving him as his heirs at law and Distributees His Widow Mary Freeman and the following children to wit:
  • William Freeman Louis Freeman Christine Turnage the wife of Robert Turnage, Ann Hall the wife of Joseph Hall Elizabeth Poston the wife of Elisha Poston and your Complainants Mary Ann Wadsworth and…
I have not found any documents that show the maiden name (Surname) of Ann Freeman Hall. 

 Ann [LNU] Freeman Hall died 18 June 1925 in Bennettsville, Marlboro County, South Carolina.

Many researches shows this deceased Ann to be Jesse Sr, daughter Ann Elizabeth Freeman; but, that’s impossible. 

Jesse Freeman is my 1st Cousin 4 times removed.
