  • Notes 
    • Notes from The Freeny Family in America (p. 55):

      "John (Freeny) the father of our subject, was born upon a farm two miles from the home of Elijah Freeny, in Worcester County, adjoining. He was a lifelong tiller of the soil, and was very prosperous leaving a valuable estate at this (sic) death. He purchased the farm now owned and cultivated by our subject in 1810, and it has always belonged in the family ever since.

      Though he was never a church member, he was an upright and just man, and was generous in his contributions to religious and charitable endeavours. His wife was Miss Mattie, daughter of William Brewington, of Salisbury, of an old and respected family there. They had 10 children of whom only one, Elijah survives." [5]
