The orginal certified copy was obtained by a cousin who has shared this with
me. My greatgrandmother was born in 1832 in Pittston, Maine and the family
moved to Dearborn County in 1838. My greatgrandfather was born in Dearborn
County. His family came to Dearborn County around 1818 from New York and
settled along Tanner Creek. This is according to the History of Dearborn Co.
that was published around 1886. The Freemans were also related to Daniel
Plummer, the Minister. He was married to a Freeman.
Thank you Mari-An!
