Hello Cousin! I have been searching our family for the past 12 years, Gracie and I attend the same church. Here is a little of what I know. (First - my family of Freeney's dropped the 2nd e and spell it Freeny -- I do not know why) Freed Slaves were:Miner,Rollie, Liddy, Lucy Ann and George. Children of Liddy: Osaias, Orlandas, Hobart, Ovilla and Minnie.Child.of Lucy Ann: Jasper, Lizzie, Janie, Victoria.Chld. of George: George, Dallas, Dicen, Elmina, Aaron.George Jr. was my ggrandfather. My records say his cousin was Jim Freeny (I don't know parents)
Hubbard Freeny (my maternal grandfather and son of George Jr.) is 93 and lives in Los Angeles.
Also, my paternal grandfather is Sim Spencer.His sister was Fannie Spencer who married Chappie Punch. Your grandmother Fannie is their granddaughter.
Glad you are interested in the search.Hope to hear from you some time.When do you go to Rusk County?
