Ezekiel Freeman m Jeanie Carter 26 Jul 1900 Randolph Co AL

Ezekiel Freeman m Jeanie Carter 26 Jul 1900 Randolph Co AL

Posted: 28 Jul 2011 5:06PM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Freeman Carter Mitchell
This couple shows up on the 1910 Census of Seminole Co OK. Ezekiel is 28 and "Genie" is 30. Hilliard and Sherman are the children both b in AL. In 1920 he is E Z Freeman age 39 and "Emmalu" is 40. Who are Jeanie's parents? Is Genie and Emmalu the same wife? The children are Howard age 17, James age 11, Millage age 9, Ruben age 6, Sylvesta age 4 and Ruth age 1.
Apparently there were more children as Howard H Freeman age 27 and wife Alice M age 23 in 1930 are the parents of Howard and Billy AND siblings of Howard are Ruthie, Ernest F and Harvey who are living with them.
When did Ezekiel die? Anyone know?
Ezekiel is the son of Mittory/Mintory Mitchell b 1867 and unk Freeman, perhaps a James. Anything appreciated. Eleanor Greene Hemmes

Valerie thanks for the response. Yes, I think James R Freeman is the father of Ezekiel. My problem is that I keep trying to connect Mintora/Mintory Mitchell b 1867 with a James Freeman.
Years ago I corresponded and visited a couple in Montgomery. They were Jep S Mitchell and wife Juanita. He sent me everything they had compiled on David Daniel Mitchell. They said that Mintory m1 a Jim Freeman and m2 a James Jeter.They said she had a son "Zeke". If she is the mother she would have only been about 14 years old. Possible but maybe not likely. As I cannot find a marriage for her to either a Freeman or a Jeter perhaps she married neither but had "Zeke" without benefit of a marriage. As you can see in the second message I posted I have never been able to find her after 1880 when she was listed with Oren D Fomby and Sarah Jane Mackey Mitchell Fomby as a 12 year old. She was the last child of D D Mitchell and the only one I do not have a definite marriage for or death. Jep said she died in GA about 1950. I do thank you for the information on James R Freeman. Ezekiel is his son but just who his "wife" was is a mystery. There was another "Mintory" Mitchell but b abt 1875 to a Green Mitchell. Jep S Mitchell was a descendant of Henry Fred Mitchell son of Margaret Mitchell (Eldon Flint Mitchell line) and Ephriam Jefferson Mitchell ( D D's son) who did not marry Margaret. Roma Craft Mitchell also contributed a lot of material to me about the Mitchells. Do you think Eldon and D D Mitchell were kin? More questions than answers. That is what keeps me interested. Thanks for all the work you do and post. Eleanor Greene Hemmes who is descended via Martha Jane Mitchell Mullins Fetner (1841-1922.

Thanks for the info. Are you saying that Lugane is Jeanie Carter?
One more mystery. EZ Freeman and "Jeanie" had a Millage Freeman b abt 1911 in OK. He is on the 1920 census of OK. In 1930 there is Millage age 18 living with a Mittie Mason in Marshall Co AL. He was b OK. She says he is her nephew and b in OK. How is he her nephew? Mittie is the widow of Robert W Mason. Do you know of any connection between Mason and Freeman? I could not find one. Unlikely that there would be two of them with that odd name. Never found him afterward on an AL death record. Eleanor

Yes, I believe Lugene/Jeanie/Genie Emmalu is the same person.

I was able to find her death info and also traced her son Milliage. He married twice, 1st to Annie Dobbs. The had a daughter, Edith Juanita Freeman, who died 1 day old. After Annie's death, he married Dovie (Cato) Lee. Milliage is allegedly buried at Bethel UMC Cemetery in Warrior, Jefferson Co., Alabama.

Ruben Freeman must be Robert Dock Freeman b July 30 1913 d 22 Dec 1961 in Hill County Texas buried in Whitney. The cemetery record of Bethlehem Cem says R J Freeman b 30 July 1918 but I think the 8 must be a 3 as the death date is the same.
Sylvester Freeman b 21 July 1915 d 11 June 1921 in Morse OK.
Ernest Grover Freeman b 17 March 1921 d 22 Feb 1989 buried in Sunnylane Cem Ok Co OK.
Ruth M Freeman b 17 Nov 1920 d 2002 is also in Sunnylane.
Also in Sunnylane is Howard J Freeman b 2/1/1924 d 6/6/1978.Believe him to be son of Howard b 1902.
There is a Jessie L Freeman b 12/21/1908 d 2/3/2000 in the Sunnylane Cem.
There is one more Freeman in the Sunnylane Cem. He is Mont Freeman b 1904 d 1982 listed as a Pvt in US Army WW2.
Not sure how all are connected.

Robert Dock Freeman's death cert has a Bertha Mae Freeman's ssignature on it. Cert says he is married. She may be his wife but cannot tell from the Cert. Don't know how he became Robert - may he did not like Ruben !!!

I have just now found this website and these postings. I am the eldest grandchild of Howard Junior Freeman, great-grandchild of Howard Hilliard Freeman. So that would make Ezekiel my great-great-grand, then James R. the great-great-great grand, and Drury my great-great-great-great grandfather [4X].

I met "Uncle Millage" and his wife Dovie when I was about 7 years old [1969], when he visited my Grandfather and my great uncle Earnest in Midwest City OK.

I got to know Earnest Grover Freeman and his wife Alberta "Dean" quite well. And also visited with my aunt Ruth from time to time. I don't believe she ever married or had children. Howard Hilliard passed away before I was born; he was supposedly a very friendly gregarious fellow.

The family history [what was described to me a long long time ago by Earnest] is that Hilliard and Millage's parents died when Earnest, Ruth, and Harvey were still very young. Millage went to stay with other relatives, Hilliard raised Earnest, Ruth, and Harvey like his own children, along with Howard Junior and Eugene, who I knew as "Uncle Gene". "Gene" was developmentally disabled and never left home nor had any children.

Howard Junior Freeman married Betty Jo Danielson, and they had Larry Joe Freeman [my father] and Jackie Freeman [my uncle 'Jack'].

Howard Junior also had a son born out-of-wedlock in Seminole OK sometime in the late 1940s.
I have no information about him, only that he attended Howard Junior's funeral [when I was 15 y.o].

Jessie Freeman was his second wife. I knew her as "Aunt Jessie".

I have vintage photos of some of these people, if any of you would be interested. I appreciate the information about the deeper past. I knew that we supposedly had roots in Georgia [the Carter background] and that Millage had lived a long time in Alabama. Somehow the family migrated to Texas for a short while, then up to Oklahoma.
