I am descended from Freeman's son, Irvin (or Irwin) Giles Lathrop. I haven't been able to find a whole lot. It's unfortunate and extremely frustrating to trace your family back to this time period and hit a brick wall when all the records should still be in the states.
I just ordered the AncestryDNA earlier this month and sent the sample in this last weekend. Waiting to see what that will tell me if anything. Thanks for reaching out. If you would like you can message me through Ancestry with your email and I can share what little I have been able to accumulate. Right no I think the only good piece of info I found was Freeman's obituary (if you can call it that). It really is just a death announcement. Still searching for his final resting site, would like to get a picture of his headstone.
