Mr. Edward E. Freeman

A Popular Citizen of Bartow Passes Away.

The community mourns the death of a popular citizen. Mr. Edward E. Freeman passed away at his home, five miles from Cartersville, on the Tennessee road, Monday evening last at four o’clock. He was in apparent good health up to three weeks ago, when he began to complain of ills, that gradually assumed a serious shape until a week ago his life was despaired of. There were a number of complications but blood poison was that agency that finally wrought a collapse. He realized his condition but retained his reason to the end and met death with fortitude and resignation.

Mr. Freeman was a good citizen and was a large hearted, genial, companionable gentleman and possessed many friends not only here but in other parts of the state.

He was 47 years of age and was reared in Griffin and in Coweta county. He was a son of ex-Congressman James C. Freeman, of the fifth district, was a brother of Messrs. D. N. and James Freeman and Mrs. Fannie Iverson. He leaves a wife, formerly Miss Mary Dobbins and three children.

He was a member of the Presbyterian church from which his funeral took place yesterday. Mr. Freeman left $7000 insurance on his life.
