    Notes 
    • Freeman traveled with his brother, Levi, to California, perhaps coming together in 1849, which is when Levi arrived (August, 1849). He appears in the 1850 census to be living in Fremont, CA (the original in Yolo County), and then later in Nevada county, nearby Levi in both cases.

      By 1875 he is living as a farmer in Shiloh, Kansas, with his wife and 12 year-old son, Frank. Like several of his siblings, Freeman tried farming in southeast Kansas, having ping-ponged from California. He then returned to California, and in 1880 is again in Nevada City, as evidenced by his participation in the Great Register for Nevada County.
