Rebecca Vine Freeman
Birth: 1750
Canterbury
Windham County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Jun. 18, 1814
Cincinnati
Hamilton County
Ohio, USA

Rebecca was the daughter of Robert and Elizabeth (Thatcher) Vine and was born in 1750 (one source suggests 1748) at Canterbury, Windham County, Connecticut. Her parents lived and established a farm near Rensselaerswyck, Albany County, New York when she was a young girl. She had four sisters: Mrs. Ira Allen, Mrs. Fuller, Mrs. Thomas Boggs and Mrs. James Perkins, whose husband was the founder of Conquest, New York. She also had two brothers: John and Orrin Vine. Rebecca was blessed with red hair. When she was eighteen years of age, she married John Freeman II on June 3, 1768 in Albany County, New York. They raised twelve children: Mary (Maria), Elizabeth, Robert, Jane, Sarah, Ann, Engeltie, Sophia, Rebecca, John (my ancestor), Nellie and Eleanor. Her husband owned a farm and country hotel four miles west of Albany, N. Y. Most of their lives were spent around Albany and Guilderland, New York. John died in 1800 and Rebecca went to Whitehall, New York where she married John Cooke sometime prior to 1814. That year she went with her son John, and daughter Sophia Bigelow-Emmons to Cincinnati,Ohio. She died in June 1814 from fever contracted en route. What became of John Cooke is not known. Family tradition has that her body was returned to Albany County where she was interred next to her husband John in the Prospect Hill Cemetery located near Guilderland, New York. Their gravesites have not been identified.

A bouquet in memory of my 3rd great grandmother who married John Freeman I in Albany County, New York. Rebecca and John raised twelve children during the Revolutionary War and were loyal supporters of the fight for our freedom from Britain.
