(Thursday, May 18, 1916)
Westmoreland and surrounding community were greatly shocked at the tragic death of Mrs. Adeline Freeman, wife of Lewis (Pony) Freeman, Sr., which occurred Saturday morning at 9:30 o'clock.
Mrs. Freeman met her death by drowning in Trammell Creek within a few hundred yards of her home. She left the house and when the house girl thought she had been gone an unnecessary length of time she went in search of her. Failing to find her she notified Lewis Freeman Jr., the youngest son, who was at work in a field nearby, that his mother was missing. J. S. Freeman of Westmoreland was next notified and hastened to his home to assist in the search for his mother. She had been seen by someone to go toward the creek some time before the alarm was given or any uneasiness as to her absence was felt.
Her body was discovered by her son J. S. Freeman. Despondency was the cause of the sad occurrence. Mr. and Mrs. Freeman had moved from Macon County, where they were well connected and greatly respected.
Mrs. Freeman was Miss Adeline Law before her marriage, one of the best families in the community.
She is survived by her husband, Lewis Freeman, Sr.,
three sons, J. S. Freeman, one of the most prominent merchants in Westmoreland, Will Freeman, a well known traveling salesman, and Lewis Freeman,
one daughter, Mrs. Gracie Law.
She is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Bettie Blankenship, and
four brothers, Nat, Will, Dink and Joe.
The deceased had been a consistent member of the Methodist Church at Haysville since early children and was noted for being an especially good woman.
The remains were conveyed to Haysville where interment was made at 3 p. m. Sunday. There is a wide circle of friends who deeply deplore the sad occurrence and sincerely sympathize with the bereaved family.
