The first census that he is discovered in is the 1860 census living with the Sarah Dye family in Richland Co., Ohio. His eventual wife, Ann Elizabeth Trump, also lived in Richland Co., Ohio and moved to Worth Co., Missouri after the Civil War with her large family. Ann Elizabeth Trump & John Freeman were married in 1866 and later that same year, George Freeman arrived from Yorkshire, England to Worth Co., , Missouri.
