FREEMAN.--On December 30, 1885, in Emporia, Kansas, RICHARD AMOS, aged 7 years, youngest son of John A. and Lillie Freeman, and grandson of J. Freeman, city missionary.

Richard is mentioned in brother Willie's obituary:

The Emporia Daily News, 12 Jan 1886, Tuesday


At 9:30 o'clock this morning, Willie T., the 11 year old son of Mr. J. A. Freeman, of typhoid fever. The funeral services will take place at the residence, No. 64 State street, at 2 p.m. to-morrow, Rev. W. C. Snodgrass officiating.

Willie was the second son of Mr. Freeman and will be buried in Maplewood cemetery beside his younger brother Richard, who died only twelve days ago of the same disease. Mr. Freeman and his oldest son, Johnnie, are just recovering from a severe illness of eleven weeks duration, during which time they were cared for by Mr. Freeman's sister, with the assistance of many kind friends and neighbors, to whom he feels under lasting obligations.

Mr. Freeman, is a gentleman who has traveled extensively in all parts of the United States, and only settled in this city about five months ago, and during that time he says he has almost been overcome with the kindness of our people, both before and after his sad affliction. His treatment by the residents of Emporia has been uniformly kind, and generous, and he wishes to tender his sincerest thanks and gratitude to those who have in any way aided himself and his family.
