"The newspaper obituary quoted below is also in possession of Louise Shaver. Other family records indicate that Sarah Gaulden Freeman's mother was Susan Brumfield; that her parents were married in P.E., Va. and some of the older children were born there; and that they moved to South Carolina before the Revolution."
Marriage in 1759 to Susannah Brumfield.
Died of small pox, possibly contracted during or around the time of the Revolutionary Battle of Eutaw Springs, Orangeburg SC. He is listed as a Patriot in the DAR for Civil Service, serving as a Petit Juror in South Carolina during the Revolutionary period.
From Virginia Colonial Militia, 1651-1776, Land Bounty Certificates, p.31, Edited by, William Armstrong Crozier, Baltimore, Southern Book Co., 1954. "Freeman Lewelling, John Gaulding, Chas. Howall and James Foster, severally privates in late war between Great Britain and France, under command, of Col. Wm. Byrd, and continued in service during their enlistments. Prince Edward Co., Feby. Court, 1780." This would be from the French Indian War (1754-1763). If this is for John Jr. It would be given very close to his Death Date.
