Lindsay Freeman Died Sunday Morning After Lingering Illness Had Been Partially Paralyzed For Several Months
Mr. Lindsay Freeman, one of the most prominent citizens of this county, died last Sunday morning from an attack of paralysis, after an illness of five months. He had an attach of paralysis last fall, but recovered from it and was able to be out as usual, but about the last of January his entire right side was paralyzed, and since that time he had been confined to his bed. He had a splendid appetite and was able to eat most anything he wanted, but had been unable to talk so that he could be understood for quite awhile.
He was a native of Grant county, Indiana and was a son of Joshua and Elizabeth Freeman. After serving through the Civil War as a Union soldier he came to Trigg county in 1865, and in the fall of that year was married to Miss Nannie E. Howard, daughter of Allen Howard, deceased, and has since had his home in the Bethel neighborhood near where he lived at the time of his death.
He was sixty six years of age, and is survived by his wife and seven children as follows: William, Lev, Henry and Abe Freeman and Mrs. Tim Wallis, of this county, John Freeman, of Colorado, and Charley freeman, of Oklahoma. He also has one brother Dave Freeman, of this place, now living, and is survived by thirty six grand children, and had never lost a child or grand child by death.
He had been a member of the Methodist church since a young man and at the time of his death held his membership at King's Chapel. He was one of the most ---- farmers of this county and for many years had been recognized as one of the leaders of the Republican party in this county, to which party he had always belonged.
His remains were laid to rest Sunday afternoon near his late residence in the presence of quite a crowd of friends and loved ones, the funeral services being conducted by his pastor, Rev. R. C. Howard.
