Birth: Sep. 24, 1830
Death: May 1, 1897

Obit-
Benjamin Freet died at his home in this place Saturday morning after a lingering illness of more than a year, aged 66 year, 7 months and 7 days. The funeral was conducted by Rev. Odenweller, of Whitten, in the Christian church Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock and the interment was in Crystal cemetery.

The service was largely attended the church being packed and many unable to gain admission at all. The deceased was born in Maryland married in 1851 and in 1854 came to this state.

He was the father of 10 children, 7 of whom, 3 sons and 4 daughters with the wife and mother, survive to mourn his departure.

Mr. Freet was among our earliest settlers and had a large circle of friends who join in extending sympathy to the bereaved family.
