    Notes 
    • Tabitha Barr Freeman pronounced her name Tabitha with a long "i" sound and the accent on the second syllable--not the traditional pronunciation. My grandmother (her daughter) and my mother (her granddaughter) told me this many times.

      I finally found George's family in the 1860 census. He is living in German Township, Harrison Co., Ohio with wife Permelia, and his children: Mary C. (12), James (10), Elizabeth (8), Gustavus (4), Tabitha (1). Tabitha's name is wrongly spelled as Urbitha, and the last name is written as Bear for the whole family!

      In Mary C. Denning's obituary, it was stated that Mary's family came to Indian Springs, Martin County, Indiana when she was 12 years old. That means that the family moved from Ohio to Indiana in about 1862.

      In 1870 living in Mitcheltree Twn (Trinity Springs), Martin Co., Indiana with father George, mother Permelia, and the following siblings: Mary C., James M., Elizabeth N., Gus ?, Jantha ?, Marlena, and Margaret (Georgia P.). Three doors down is Robert Denning family. James Irving Denning would marry Mary Catherine Barr.

      Francis Marion Freeman of Martin Co, Indiana and Tabitha E. Barr of Indian Springs, Indiana were united in marriage 12 Aug 1888 by Lee Denson.

      In 1900 living with spouse and George, Mary, James, Cynthia M., Thomas W., and Lena Simpson (Tabitha's sister) in Halbert, Martin, Indiana.

      In 1910 living with spouse and children George, Mary, James, Cynthia M., and Thomas in Halbert, Martin, Indiana.

      In 1920 living with spouse and children Harvey, Cynthia M., and Thomas in Halbert, Martin, Indiana.

      She was the last of her family and died on Tuesday, 31 May 1938. Her daughter Maggie also died of a Cerebral Hemorrhage.
