Ross Edwin Freeman

Ross Edwin Freeman was born Dec. 5, 1924 and departed this life on Dec. 17, 2015. He was the youngest of four sons born to the marriage of Ora Elizabeth Freeman and Albert Roscoe Freeman. His father was a rancher in Stephens County, Texas and he died from injuries sustained in a horse accident in August of 1925. Since Ross was only eight months old at the time, he had no memory of his father. Following the death of Albert, Matt Williams, Ross’s Uncle and the older brother of Ross’s Mother, joined the family as mentor, father, helper and leader. Since the oldest of the four sons was only nine at the time, Matt’s coming to take the helm was a blessing at the time. Matt was six years older than his sister Ora, single, and available to help, lend guidance, counsel, and assume a fatherly role. In December of 1929 the family moved from Stephens County to Bosque County, and settled on a farm between Union Hill and Eulogy.
