Notes

In the photo you have of (Freeman) on your site, he is holding a carte-de-visite on his knee. I have seen it noted in a few places that the photo he is holding is of his brother Michael. I have identified every member of his family and he had no brother Michael. I believe it to be of his brother-in-law Isaac Clark, who had recently died when Freeman had his own picture taken.
