George Emmanuel Freeman (1816–1901)

On Saturday evening an old resident of Singleton and district passed away to that bourne from which no traveller return, in the shape of George Emanuel Freeman. The cause of death, as certified to by Dr. Bowman, was senile decay. A fortnight ago Mr Freeman gave evidence at Mitchell's Flat in the inquest on the skeleton which was found there. Deceased was 92 years of age, and had lived in the district for over 60 years. He established his claim to an old age pension, but only lived to receive one payment. The funeral, which was attended by many old residents, took place yesterday afternoon.
