With all the new technology and Halifax Va being one of the largest mineral locations in the state of Va ,The 1 st family whole blood is excited about leaseing thier farm to farmers who have lost thier farm.Benjamin Freeman owns a 30.17 acre parcel we would like to Thank the Halifax Va community for all thier friendly waves when we have visited recently.
The County clerk's office has also been very helpful keep up the good work.The last living heir of Emanuel Freeman Jr & Annie Freeman was Pinkie Freeman Logan previouly married to William Logan,William Logan was married to Edna Freeman before Benjamin Freeman died.All of the Freeman family has also participated in agriculture as well as the tobacco buyout which our wonderful cousin Vera Freeman Harris,Louis Jennings ,Ethel Freeman Washington,John Freeman are from the second family Emanuel Freeman Freeman Sr & Rebecca Johnson Freeman children.And we are all owners of the large parcel.We are all looking forward to the farms becoming recgonized respectfully in the Halifax County for future generations with transparency.God Bless The Freeman family

We no longer need a lawyer but would love a community meeting to help and preserve the Freeman gravesites.

Update on the Freeman Estate we have retained a lawyer he has worked diligently on our challenging case.The status now is after close research and a title search the legal court document's show that Emanuel Sr in his lifetime owned many parcels of land is directly under the Barksdale land which is allegedly Emanuel Sr father which was a judge in Halifax Va.The listed administrator was Pinkie Logan.The Freeman family filed a motion through our attorney to be compensated for any minerals on our estates that opposing attorney brother purchased at and auction with taxes paid in full.Aug 6,2014 one of our family members which his mother is not being included and was eliminated she is 84 yrs old in a senior home.Her father was Albin Freeman his grandson filed a motion to have the documents delineated and court appointed officials to be investigated with major conflicts of interest.Stay tuned for the next saga .
