A Member of Co. E
27th Iowa Inf. Vol.

NOTE: Iowa Civil War Soldier Burial Records has him listed as buried in Plainfield, Bremer County, Iowa. WPA Records show him buried in Willow Lawn Cemetery, Polk Twp., Bremer County, Iowa with notes: "Civil War Vet Co. E 27th IA Inf." But there is a note attached to the record from Mike Peterson that states: "Freedom Jones who was a Civil War Vet in Co. E 27th IA Inf; b. in Chautauqua Co, NY 7 Apr 1822 and died in Guthrie, Logan County, OK on 20 Feb 1899 is buried in Summit View Cemetery, Guthrie - not here. I have pictures of headstones. Don't know why he is listed here although he lived here at one time. Another Freedom buried Giard Cemetery, Farmersburg, Clayton Co but unlikely both in same CW Co.
