LeMars Sentinel, Feb. 26, 1884
Our community was startled this morning by the announcement of the
death of Uncle Sam Freeman, father of county recorder, W. S. Freeman. He was
apparently in good health and done his work as usual, and ate his supper a
short time before retiring for the night. After being in bed about fifteen
minutes, he was taken with severe pains and expired within a few moments. The
funeral will take place at the church here tomorrow. Mr. Freeman was a man beloved
by all who knew him, and his death will be mourned by neighbors and friends.
The bereaved family have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.

Seney, March 3: The funeral of "Uncle" Sam Freeman was held at north Fredonia instead
of our church as at first intended. Through some inadvertence the grave was
not completed when the procession arrived at the cemetery, and the services
at the grave had to be postponed for about three hours until the grave was
