In Reply to: Hinckley Obituraries re Rosella and Julia Hinckley, Brunswick, ME by Kerri Arsenault of 789

Thanks for posting the obituaries.

I couldn't find anything specific about Rosella / Rosilla. The names found most among the FREEMAN families of Maine seem to belong to descendants of Samuel FREEMAN of Watertown, MA. The following is mostly from Freeman Genealogy by Fredk. Freeman, 1875.

Enoch FREEMAN (19 May 1706 - 2 S 1788) m. 31 Aug. 1742, Mary WRIGHT. Their sons known to have had issue were Samuel & Enoch. Samuel was b. 15 Je. 1743, Falmouth, ME. Enoch (4 S 1750, ME - Dec. 1832) m. Sep. 1787, Mehitable CUSHING.

Samuel, b. 1743, had sons with issue, Wm. & Charles.
Wm. (2 July 1783 - 29 Apr. 1861) m. 29 Aug. 1806, Frances CLARKE. Of sons, only Wm. is known to have had children.
Charles (3 Je. 1794 - 1853, had sons Chas. M., & Samuel.

Enoch FREEMAN, b. 1750, had sons Enoch (1790 - ca. 1820); Nathl., b. 1792; & James (1800 - 1831).

Another connection that might pertain to these families is the family of Nathaniel FREEMAN & Mary PAINE. Their dau. Bethia FREEMAN, b. 4 July 1725, m. 29 Dec. 1744 or 24 Jan. 1744/5, John HINCKLEY, b. 16 Nov. 1717, s/o Joseph. John HINCKLEY & Bethia had

James/Joseph?, b. & d. Nov. 1745
Bethia (25 Aug. 1747 - 23 F 1775)
Mary (9 Aug. 1749 - 2 Apr. 1820)
Elizabeth, b. 9 Apr. 1752
"Brick" John (5 Oct. 1754 - 12 Mayy 1814) m. 4 Dec. 1776, Hannah IDE, d/o Ezra.
Freeman, b. 27 Je. 1757, m. 17 May 1771 {sic}, Sabra HATCH of Falmouth, who m2. John THATCHER as his fourth wf.
Twins? Jas. & Sarah, b. 2 Apr. 1760, dy?
Sarah, b. 28 Oct. 1762/3. --Discrepancies in this family are because the HINCKLEY & FREEMAN histories disagree. John, b. 1754, was called "Brick John" because he lived in the brick house, and there was another John called "Farmer John."
