FREED- In Girard, June 28th, 1915, Enoch Freed, aged 74 years, 3 months and 8 days.
Enoch Freed was born in Bucks county, Pa., March 19th, 1841. He came to Illinois in the year 1863. Here he enlisted in the 134th Regiment of Illinois Infantry, where he served his time faithfully and received an honorable discharge. He was married to Eliza Jane Glaze Nov. 10th, 1866. To this union were born four children, all of whom with his widow, survive him. They are Mrs. Mary Ulery, of Pittsburg, Kans.; and Edward G. and Chas. Freed, both of Kansas City, Mo. He also leaves ten grandchildren and seven great-grand-children, who deeply mourn his loss. Mr. Freed with his family moved to Kansas in the year 1880, where he settled on a farm eleven miles southwest of Girard. Here he lived twenty-nine years. Since that time he has lived at his late home in Girard.
He united with the German Lutheran church in his youth, and in the year of 1897 with the M. E. church at Monmouth, Kansas. To this faith he has remained a constant and faithful worker.
He was a devoted husband, a kind and loving father and grandfather. He will be sadly missed in his wide circle of friends.
He is gone, but not forever,
There will be a glorious dawn.
We shall meet to part, no never,
On the resurrection morn.
Funeral services were held at his late home on South Cherokee street Tuesday, at 11 a.m., Rev. E. J. Gardner officiating, assisted by Rev. H. L. Dolson, of McCune.
