****If this is the Margaret Freeman listed on the 1850 McMinn County Census she hasn't aged in 10 years. In fact she is younger by three years! it may be another "Margaret".but I belive not. Alfred has aged 5 years in 10. On the 1850 census he was 9 years old, on this census he is 14 years old.I have his full civil war pension file and someone at the national archives had enumerated a full page and a half of different birthdays he had given them over the years. Alfred Sr. disappeared from the public records with this census. He died sometime before the 1870 census was done.

[contact link] 12-3-2003, via e-mail:
My g-grandmother, Louise Froelich was born in Texas in 1881. My g-grandmother's parents where both born in Germany. I'm still in search of the correct spelling and their first names. I believe that the spelling is Froelich/FrÖlich. My great aunt tells me that it was pronounced "Free lick", phonetically.

They are found in the Harris County, Houston, Texas City Directory as far back as 1879-1880.

When my gg-grandmother became widowed, she married an Eisemann. ( The Eisemanns are in the same city directory.) I'm pretty sure they had more children.

My g-grandmother, Louise Froelich, married Arthur Hacker, around 1901-2. These Hackers originated in America around Ohio, Tennessee, & Missouri, USA. His father, Daniel Hacker, was born (Abt. 1845) in Missouri, his mother, Wilmonth, in Tennessee (b. Abt. 1848). I don't know her maiden name.

I still have much research to do!

JAMES H KNIGHT HAD A DEVIL OF A TIME TRYING TO GET DISABILITY PENSION. HE WAS LEFT CRIPPLED AND PARTIALLY BLIND. IT IS BELIVED THAT HE LIVED ON STARS MOUTAIN IN MCMINN COUNTY TEMMESSEE UNTILL HIS DEATH.[RENFRO.FTW]

[1870 Meigs Co Census]
John Knight 16, Elizabeth Hacker 30 and her son Frank Hacker 11 were living with Margaret's sister Elizabeth Thompson near Margaret Knight household.
Frank and Lorinda (Laura) Hacker children were raised by James's sister Harriet Jane Knight. They evidently did not move to Arkansas in 1901 with the Knights. Lorinda married a Renfro according to the family tradition. I suspect that she married as Harriet L. Knight in 1890 Meigs Co TN to James Monroe Renfro. Newton Frank lived in MO by 1900.

After James H. Knight married Mary Gibson in Meigs Co, TN, he moved to McMinn Co, TN where he applied for his civil war pension. His children are not mentioned in the pension application or the McMinn Co census. What a mess. He was crippled and almost blind. He lived on Starr Mountain, owed the Knight heirs and was missing payments to them. After his death, his widow Mary had problems applying for the widow's pension and with property disputes. Nothing was simple.
