John Freeman married Effelanah (?).
He died on 10 February 1778 at St. John, QC, John, his wife, and 6 or 7 chidren died of possibly smallpox.1
Lived at Stillwater, NY in 1775. He served in August 1777 was a guide for Gen. Burgoyne's forces at Saratoga. He served on 15 October 1777 enrolled in Jessup's Corps. Apparently the Freeman family originally came to the U.S. from England on the 'Abigail', one of several companion ships on the second voyage of the Mayflower.
Historians consider the Battle of Saratoga to be the major turning point of the American Revolution. This battle proved
to the world that the fledgling American army was an effective fighting force capable of defeating the highly trained British forces
in a major confrontation. As a result of this successful battle, the European powers, particularly the French, took interest in the
cause of the Americans and began to support them.
In the British Campaign of 1777, Major General Burgoyne planned a concentric advance of three columns to meet in
Albany, New York. He led the main column, which moved southward along the Hudson River. A second column under
General Barry St. Leger served as a diversionary attack, moving eastward from Canada along the Mohawk River. General
Howe was expected to direct the third element of the attack. According to the plan, General Henry Clinton, under the direction
of Howe, would move northward along the Hudson River and link up with Burgoyne in Albany. Through this campaign, the
British hoped to isolate and destroy the Continental forces of New England.
Initially, the British plan appeared to be working, with British victories at Ticonderoga and Hubbardton. Burgoyne's army
continually pushed back the Americans southward along the Hudson River with only minor casualties. The Battle of Bennington
marked the first significant American victory, when General John Stark led the American militia to victory against a British
In an attempt to slow the British advance, the American General Philip Schuyler detached 1000 men under the command
of Major General Benedict Arnold. This force moved west to thwart St. Leger's eastward advance along the Mohawk River.
Arnold returned with his detachment after repelling St. Leger in time serve in the Battle of Saratoga.
At the Battle of Freeman's Farm, the new commander of the Northern Department of the American army, General
Horatio Gates, lost an indecisive battle. During this First Battle of Saratoga, fought 19 September 1777, the American forces
lost ground to the British forces under General Burgoyne. Disagreements in tactics and personalities led to a heated argument
between Generals Gates and Arnold. General Gates relieved Arnold of command as a result. The Battle of Bemis Heights was
the second battle of Saratoga, taking place October 7th when Burgoyne desperately attacked rebel defenses with his tired,
demoralized army. At Bemis Heights, Gate's defensive tactics insured a tactical victory for the Patriots. However, Arnold saw
an opportunity to seize the offensive while Burgoyne was vulnerable and led a counterattack. This bold move so badly
wounded the British forces that Burgoyne surrendered days later at Saratoga.
