Eaton County Michigan

EATON COUNTY MEMORIAL REPORT

The quarterly conference licensed him to exhort and afterwards to preach. He was recommended to the annual conference, was duly received, was ordained deacon by Bishop Janes, and for several years was an efficient and useful itinerant, filling quite a number of important appointments in the conference, among them the Indian mission, which was formerly a part of this district. In all departments of church work involving its spiritual interests Brother Freeman has been known as a brave, earnest, faithful, and successful worker. Whether in the Sunday- school, class or prayer meeting, in the pulpit, or in pointing penitents to the lamb slain for sinners, he has been equally efficient. Brother and Sister Freeman have had six children, five of whom, with their bereaved mother, are here to-day as mourners, and one is with the father on the other side of the river. Mr. Freeman has been called upon at various times to serve his fellow citizens in positions of official responsibility, and he has been equally acceptable as a public officer as in affairs connected with the church. As a citizen, this whole community will bear me out in saying, that in all matters involving the moral, religious, educational or intellectual interests of the community, our departed friend was always found on the side of right and condemning the wrong, and his voice gave no uncertain sound. He was not afraid to rebuke evil or condemn sin, no matter who the sinner, or how popular the evil might be. If the population of this goodly city was made up entirely of just such men as our departed brother, there would be no need of police, magistrates, or jails.
