I am looking for information on the ancestry of Joseph Haskel (Haskel) Free of Cocke County, Tennessee.The 1880 census suggests that he was the son of William H. Free and William's wife Sarah J.But I can't figure out who William H. and Sarah J. were.
The 1900 census says that Haskel Free was born Jul 1869.But in looking at the 1880 census, I believe must really have been born in Jul 1870.In any case, he was not enumerated in the 1870 census.
Joseph Haskel (Haskel) Free m.(1) Rebecca Slaton, d/o Francis Marion (Frank) Slaton and Mary Anne Moore, on 15 Mar 1894 in Jefferson County, Tennessee.Jefferson County is adjacent to Cocke County.Rebecca died in 1903, and her children with Haskel Free were raised by her parents in Jefferson County, Tennessee.Haskel went west after his first wife died.He went with Rebecca's brother John Thomas Slaton to Holtville, Imperial County, California.
Joseph Haskel Free m.(2) to Nettie in about 1910.It was also Nettie's second marriage, and I do not know her maiden name nor her first husband's surname.Haskel and Nettie moved from California to Oregon, and resided there thereafter.
