DEATH: Certified death certificate is in the possession of Ellie Friesen.

Note from Ellie Friesen:

Residences: Hope, AR (1871), Indian Territories (1906), Redland until her death. Martha Brock tells me that in the Civil War the Freeman's or Almand family put corn in the walls of their home so the soldiers would not steal their food. A Yankee soldier came into the yard when Druscilla was sweeping the yard and asked for food. When she told him she didn't have any he hit her with his rifle knocking her to the ground.

Druscilla's Funeral Notice: Funeral Services were held for Mrs. D. Freeman, who died Sunday at Redland, were held Monday afternoon at 1:00 o'clock at the Redland cemetery with Rev. E.W. Wright and Rev.J.L. Cooke officiating. The song service was held by the Redland singing class, directed by A.W. Lambert.

She is survived by one son, W.A. Freeman, California; four daughters, Mrs. V. Roberts, Sacramento, CA, Mrs. C.M. Cabaniss, Mrs. W.H. Farley,and Mrs. Andrew Dollarhide, all of Redland; twenty grandchildren and several great grandchildren.

Out-of-town relatives attending the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Rufus Webb, Hugo; Mrs. Henry Almand, Mrs. and Mrs. Tony Almand and son, Harold, and Joseph Almand, all of Broken Bow; Mr. and Mrs. Warren Hart and children, and Mrs. Minnie Roe of Hope, AR.

Mrs. D. Freeman was born March 26, 1858 at Atlanta, GA. At the age of thirteen, just after the Civil War her family moved to a little town near Hope, AR.

She married Robert Freeman in 1876.

In 1906 the moved to the Indian Territory and her husband died in 1909. She spent the remainder of her life here. She fell from her chair last August and broke her hip and was never up again. She leaves a host of friends and relatives to mourn her passing.

10 " ... Charles McLean was born about 1726, the son of John McLean of Scotland, whose wife was a stepdaughter of Ephrain Moore, apparently an Ulsterman. They came to near Philadelphia, according to tradition,about 1748-1750. We find Charles and his brother Ephraim McLean in the Alamance Creek district of Guilford County, North Carolina around 1760. Charles married in old Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, in 1763 to Mrs. Susan Howard Allison, Widow and daughter of Dr. Howard of Philadelphia, and settled on lands on Fishing and Allison's Creek,where his two older children were born. He moved to what is Gaston County in 1768. McLean, Col. Charles (I4559)

13 "Appointment of Hudson Wren, now county agricultural agent at Osceola, to be the senior rural supervisor for the Emergency Relief Administration in Mississippi County was announced today by B.N. Wilson, county ERA administrator.

Mr. Wren has accepted, Mr. Wilson said, subject to approval of the state agricultural extension service, from which he must obtain a leave of absence. In this new capacity he will be the manager of the 8,500 Mississippi county rural rehabilitation project, near Marie, and will also be agricultural advisor for the Dyess colony. One of his assistants will be Joe Dillahunty of this city, former county assessor, who will have headquarters on the Ridgeland farm, part of the rehabilitation project.

Mr. Wren, a native of Prescott, Ark., was Smith-Hughes instructor at Wilson high school until last fall, when he was named county agent at Osceola to succeed S.D. Carpenter. He has also had experience in agricultural work in southeast Arkansas.

While Mr. Wren's permanent headquarters will be at Dyess colony, his major task this year will be at the county rehabilitation farm, where the ERA plans to locate several hundred farm families, no one relief rolls in this and other counties. The farm has 6,000 acres now in cultivation and plans call for the clearing of an additional 2,500 agres. The land has been leased from the Lee Wilson company." 
Wren, Henry Hudson (I6703)
 
14 "General" is an honorary title and not an actual rank.

From FindaGrave:
John Hamilton was born about 1746. Some claim he was born in 1752 in the Laggan Dist., Londonderry, Ireland. (The Connector of the Hamilton National Genealogical Society, 2001) He married Elizabeth Archer on 25 Oct 1774. He worked as justice and clerk of Guilford Co., North Carolina for many years. I have original papers that he signed relating to his brother-in-law Thomas Archer. Late in his life John was accorded the honorary title of “General.”

OBITUARY
"Friday, May 7, 1819, Raleigh Minerva
DIED, on the 25th January last, in Pulaski County, W. Tenn., whither he went last fall on a visit to a son-in-law and daughter, GENERAL JOHN HAMILTON of Guilford, N. C. He was one of GEN. GREEN’S aides on the day of the battle fought at Guilford Court House on the 15th March, 1781, and was active in gaining our independence."

Although it has been asserted that Hamilton was buried in the area of the McNairy Cemetery in 1819, there is no evidence of a marker or gravestone for him there today. Pat Kinsey notes that, "MANY graves were lost/destroyed in the Robert McNairy Cemetery of Giles Co, TN before a cemetery survey was taken. Gen John Hamilton is NOT shown on the cemetery survey as being buried there. He may have been and his grave marker was lost....OR he was buried elsewhere."

One comment on FindaGrave suggests that there may be errors here since there were several Hamilton families in the area at that time, but it doesn't suggest what the errors might be.

Findagrave suggests that his father was Hance Hamilton and that the family came to TN from Pennsylvania. However, the Descendants of Simon Dickson says that it was John Hamilton. https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/73512891/hance-hamilton
