This weeks prompt in the 52 Ancestors in 52 Week challenge is ‘Where There’s A Will’
Robert Daniel Freeland was my 3rd great grandfather. He was born on April 6, 1798 in Hillsboro, Orange County, North Carolina and died on July 24, 1878 in Henry County, Tennessee. He had been married 3 times and I descend from his 2nd wife.
A cousin of mine had written in her family history book that when Freeland was on his death bed, his 3rd wife convinced him to sign over his entire estate to her and leave everyone else out of his will. I was rather pleased when I found that this was not true.
