                    Notes for Dedrick Warren Blair:
                    Dedrick was known simply as "Blair" to everyone. Even Diane called him Blair. Diane and Blair had
                    separated before his death, but he had moved in with her when his health declined too badly for him to
                    live alone. When he died it was at her place in Manassas. He had gone outside in the very early morning
                    to smoke a cigarette, leaving his oxygen bottle inside the house. He apparently passed out as he re-
                    entered the house through the patio door, and died there, half inside the entrance. Diane and son Nathan
                    found him when they awoke and came downstairs that morning.

VA.. She was the daughter of 10. John Benjamin Carter and 11. Jane Posey.

Notes for Claude Braxton Freeman:
      Claude was enlisted in the USMC in 1921, and served in Central America and the Caribbean. He served for
one enlistment before leaving the Marines. In civilian life he worked as a mechanic, electrician, bricklayer, and
various other jobs.
      Claude often disappeared for periods of months after marrying Lillian. According to son Ralph this was
because he was away working at the Rock Island Arsenal. Later Claude worked as a civilian armorer at Fort
Belvoir, VA. He was given an award for developing a practice round for the M-16 rifle. He also received an
award for developing a faster method of changing the oil in 90mm artillery piece. His method took ninety
minutes whereas the old method took four hours. The newspaper article in the official army newspaper used to
hang over his work table in his work shop. He worked at Fort Meyer and Fort Belvoir.
      Claude also worked as a gunsmith, having a repair shop in the basement of his self-built home in Springfield,
VA, and later in his and Lillian's home in Zephyr Hills, Fl. He would repair and modify weapons for the law
enforcement, military, and civilian gun owners in the area. On several occasions he built sporting rifles from
scratch for customers. His grandsons Donald and Dale used to sit in his shop and watch him make springs,
screws, gun barrels, and carve the wooden stocks for the rifles. He had lathes and drill presses for forming all the
gun parts he needed. He even did the engraving work on the gun receivers and stocks. He usually had a dog with
him, and the dog would lay in the shop waiting for attention from Claude. Claude loved dogs, and they all
seemed to love him. He rarely was without a dog during his life.
      Ralph says that his father played either the banjo or the guitar on a country western or bluegrass radio show
in North Carolina as a teen. As a boy, Ralph remembers Claude coming home and turning on the radio, listening
to his favorite shows all evening, and finishing the night listening to country music until the small hours of the
morning.
      When Jerrell and Margaret were divorced, Claude and Lillian did all they could to help Margaret, baby
sitting the children and having them down to Florida for visits when they moved from Virginia to Florida.
Grandsons Donald and Dale spent a lot of hours with Claude, and they spent the summer with Claude and Lillian
in 1968 in Florida.

Notes for Lillian Virginia Carter:
      Lillian had problems with her legs, and for much of her middle and later life was greatly restricted in her
ability to walk. She also had a very inactive thyroid gland which made it difficult for her to lose weight.
Unfortunately for Lillian, the thyroid gland problem was only diagnosed by a nuclear medicine scan late in her
life, and she finally lost weight just before she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She did well on
chemotherapy, not losing her hair or being very ill, but the chemotherapy was too late to stop the cancer which
finally killed her.
      After Claude's death she moved back to Alexandria, VA. She chose to live in apartments near Peggy
(Margaret Freeman) Knight so she could help by baby sitting her grandchildren and help prepare dinner each
night while Margaret and her second husband both worked. Later, when she got too ill, Margaret took care of
her, taking her to all her medical appointments and helping her buy her medicines. When Lillian died in her
hospital bed, Margaret and her daughter-in-law Hazel Freeman were present.
      Unbeknownst to her grandchildren, her son Jerrell (their father) also came to visit her late in the evenings
(per Ralph Freeman). On the day of her death, her grandsons Donald and Dale were called from work at the U. S.
Postal Service, and her granddaughters were called from home, but they all arrived after Lillian had died.
      Lillian used to visit her son Ralph in North Carolina and her brother Emmett in Orange whenever she could
get someone to drive her. Her grandson Donald used to drive her for her visits on weekends and they became
close during the last years of her life.
      Donald once asked his grandmother why she never learned to drive. She, and Claude confirmed it, said that

                                                          2
Claude once put her behind the wheel of his car when they were living in Springfield in the 1950's. Lillian said
she was doing fine, and they were driving down Old Keene Mill Road (in those days it was a rural road, not the
six lane boulevard it is today) when she suddenly and for no apparent reason made a sharp left turn into the
woods. That was the end of her driving lessons. Claude never again took a chance on teaching her.
     On some documents found such as her W-2 forms from S. Kann Sons Co in Arlington she is listed as Mrs.
Lillian C. Freeman. (1951 W-2 Form)

                    supposed to be an excellent swimmer, but this day he told the men he was too tired to swim. They teased
                    him into going, telling him he'd feel better once he was in the water. Wade agreed, and went swimming.

Notes for John Benjamin Carter:
John Benjamin Carter worked as a glazier for Dyer Bros. Paint Co. in Washington D.C. His grandson Ralph
Harrison Freeman remembers going to the store as a boy and watching him cut and shape glass for windows.
Brenda Carter's notes say he worked there from 1928 to 1929, but Ralph Freeman remembers that he worked
there until he retired. Brenda Carter's notes also show that he worked as for Barnum's Circus where he held an
apparatus in his mouth to support the high wire ladies. He also threw knives. There is an anecdote that he used
Nannie Mae, his daughter, as a "target" for his knife act, but one time missed his throw and cut her toe. After this
he gave up the act. Of course, the target was supposed to be her outline.
     Margaret T. Freeman/Knight remembers her mother-in-law Lillian Freeman (Lillian V. Carter) saying that
John Benjamin had been a "barker" for the carnival. Ralph H. Freeman, Lillian's son, supports this memory.

Notes for Jane Posey:
Son Bill (William) told his family that once his mother emptied some old jars of apple sauce into the yard, and the
summer heat fermented it. The chickens in the yard ate the fermented apple sauce and became drunk, falling over
in a deep sleep. Janie thought they had all died, and chose several to pluck and prepare for dinner. After the
chickens were plucked some of them revived. For a while there were a number of bald chickens running around
the yard.

Per Doris Freeman/Chandler, whenever the old sixties song "Polk Salad Annie" was played Lillian would talk
about how her mother Janie used to wander the woods near home picking the "polk" for polk salad.

Jane died October 11, 1919 of the Spanish Flu. She is buried in Beth El Cemetery with her mother and father
Nancy J. Brissey and Samuel Posey, brothers, sisters, and children. The location of her grave is C88.

                   Freeman. They would visit about once a month. Margaret was taking pottery classes around 1975, and
                   Don was taken by a ceramic owl she was making. It had only been fired once, and was painted and
                   waiting for a final firing and glazing. Margaret offered him the owl, and he accepted it. Margaret
                   wanted to finish the glazing, but Don liked the colors and appearance so much that he refused to allow
                   her to glaze it. Donald still has the owl today, in it's unglazed condition. Later, Margaret became blind
                   and was unable to do any more pottery.

                    She did this with a handicap- no left arm above the elbow. She was able to do many things.
                    Helen Haller Carter lived not far from Annie as a child and remembers that when she and neighborhood
                    children used to take fruit from the trees on Annie's property she'd come out wearing a gun on her hip
                    and scare them off.
                     In the scrap book are pictures of Annie and a newspaper article about her job as a mechanic
                    She worked for a garage called Hevey's. Jerrell Allen Freeman used to tell his wife Margaret about a

                    The Montgomery Coutny NC Marriage Bonds list shows that Bennet Freeman posted a bond on 1
                    January 1844 before their marriage. A bond for $1000 was posted in those days and would be paid by
                    the groom if it transpired that there were any reason the marriage should not have been performed. (eg:
                    bigamy, previously unknown crimes, bastard children, etc.) No money actually was needed unless the
                    bond was required to be paid.

    Hour by hour we saw you fail
    And slowly sink away,
    Yet in our hearts we often prayed
    That you might longer stay.
    Dear Father, how can we give you up,
    You, whom we loved so well;
    How can we drink that bitter cup
    And say the word, farewell.

    Oh, father, thy gentle voice is hushed,
    Thy warm, true heart is still,
    And on thy pale and peaceful face
    Is resting death's cold chill.
    Thy hands are clasped upon thy breast,
    We have kissed thy lovely brow,
    And in our aching hearts we know
    We have no father now.

    Then in Heaven with joy to greet thee
    Where no farewell tears are shed.
