Freeman Smallpox Cemetery

In September 2011 Faith Shores pointed out this listing refers to the gravestone of Thomas Freeman who was born September 13, 1708 and died January 19, 1766.

She provided a quote from W. C. Smith's "A History of Chatham, Massachusetts" as follows: "Mr. Thomas Freeman, who lived at Harwich at the head of Pleasant Bay not far from the Chatham line, and was considered skillful in medicine, also caught the disease and died on January 19."

Smith noted in 1917 "His gravestone may still be seen in the field at South Orleans near where he lived."

The exact location of the gravestone and whether it exists in 2011 is not known.
