      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.
