Caleb Everett Freeman (1862 - 1904)



Caleb Everett Freeman was born in Rhode Island in July 1862.  He was the son of Mason Freeman (1820 - 1898) and his wife Martha Amanda Freeman nee, Shearman (1830 - 1870). Caleb was a brother of my great grandmother, Sarah Etta (Freeman) Carpenter, and so Caleb is my great grand uncle.

Caleb E. Freeman was a bookkeeper.  He and his wife Carrie had four children before Caleb died rather young on August 3, 1904 at age 42.  Their children were:

     1.  Mason Freeman born in November 1888.
     2.  Gladys R. Freeman born in September 1889.
     3.  Elsie Freeman born in October 1892.
     4.  Arnold R. Freeman born in 1903.

My maternal grandfather, Everett Shearman Carpenter (son of Samuel Eber Carpenter and Sarah Etta Freeman), got his first name from the middle name of his Uncle Caleb and his middle name from his maternal grandmother Martha Amanda (Shearman) Freeman's  maiden surname.
