Hattie is my great-great grandmother.She was born Harriett Ann Elizabeth LEAVITT sometime around 1844 in Montgomery Co, Missouri.
She married George W FREE Jr (my great-great-grandfather) and they had three children: Julia, Frank and George.According to the child's place of births, they lived in Iowa, Illinois and then Kent Co, MI in 1868.
In 1868, her husband George was killed and she married his brother William H. FREE one year later.Together they had two more children: Harry and Walter.The 1880 census shows them living in Mecosta Co, MI.
Hattie died on 24 Dec 1913.
As for Sylvia Brown FREE... I don't know anything about her.I can account for all of the FREE brothers and for all of Hattie's sons except for Harry.Also, I guess she could have married one of Hattie's nephews.
I'd be interested to know anything that you might have learned about any of the Frees.
