Eureka Community News

Looking for my Ancestors
I'm an amateur genealogist looking for any information about the Charles Edwin Freeman family which lived in Greenwood County from at least 1880 to 1900. Gus Freeman was mentioned in the news item of 1897 in the Eureka paper listed under historical events for Eureka. He was my wife's uncle.
I would appreciate anything at all that might mention them.
