Wauconda

Freelove was born in NY & married in Kane Co., IL to George Seymour Griswold as his 2nd wife.
We believe George was the brother of Levi but this hasn't been proven.

There are other family members buried in this cemetery, some do not have stones.
Freelove was the daughter of James & Ester/Esther (Clark) Smith, also buried here.

George had 2 daughters from his previous marriage to Julia Temple, Sarah & Lucy.
Lucy married Thurston Turner.

I have not found out what happened to Sarah.
Freelove's husband George Seymour Griswold, probably died in Polk Co,Oregon.

George & Freelove had Mary & George Jr.
