"FREEMAN SMALLEY (1790-1881)
Freeman Smalley was a Baptist minister who preached tirelessly to frontier settlements in the earliest days of Williamson County, and was one of the founders of the Andice Baptist Church and the Anti-Slaveholding Union Baptist Church in the Palm Valley area of Round Rock. Smalley had difficulty holding a congregation together because he preached against slavery, and remained a staunch supporter of the Union through the Civil War. For this he was robbed, and faced threats of retaliation. In 1866 he left Williamson County and sold his land to Capt. Nelson Merrell, who later built his home there, which is now an historic landmark. The Anti-Slaveholding union Baptist Church was never built, but the graveyard still sits off of A.W. Grimes Boulevard. It is often referred to as the Smalley Cemetery because of its association with the family. "
