To Patricia Janiszewski. I am also a descendant of Rueben Freshwater. I believe the family is the same. Please provide me with your Rueben's spouse's name and your grandparents names. Then I can better answer your request. I have two very thick books on the family and there are many Reubens. Barbara Fulmer

Reuben Freshwater is my Great,Great Grandfather who married Chloe Charter 30 May 1830/1831. They had 7 children. My Great Grandfather is William Freshwater, their second child, born 25 Jun 1834 in Ashland Co. Ohio. He married Ellen Jane Chance on 3 Jul 1856. I thought Reuben's father was a William Freshwater who married a Nancy Chain?? Are we still talking about the same Reuben Freshwater? Please e-mail me:

I am related thru to Thomas Freshwater 1st
born 1638 died 1693
He came over from England to the Royal Colony
of Virginia in 1656 a young man of 18yrs.

So if your my cousin,welcome to the group!

My parents use to help host a Freshwater
reunion in Deleware,Ohio.
It was interesting meeting all the desendants
or relations.

Let me know how you are doin,in the research. The
2nd book goes all the way back to the 14th century

Richard Freshwater B,1350 D,?

Hi, Reuben was my 4th grandfather. Best I've been able to track, his son George married Mary Hunter, produced son Benjamin. Benjamin married Mary Buxton; their daughter Mary Lavina Freshwater is my great-grandmother. She married James Edward Billingsley. I only have the 1st ed. of Freshwater so now I'll have to order the second volume. Thanks for the info!

Hi, I have been trying to find out info on a Ben Freshwater that married a Sally Wyatt. Don't know much else about them except that a had a son Lee Freshwater. Lee called himself Lee Martin, somewhere along the line someone changed the name, from freshwater to martin. Lee ended up in TN, Loudon Co. married to Lillian Woody. He also had a half sister named Hetty White. I guess white was her married name?? Don't know for sure. Any help out there I would greatly appreciate it,Thanks Pat
