Raymond Rich Freeman Jr.

M, b. 15 January 1911, d. 24 March 1990
     Raymond Rich Freeman Jr. was Mechanic. He was born on 15 January 1911 at Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He was the son of Raymond Rich Freeman and Mary Ambrose Snow. Raymond Rich Freeman Jr. married Louise Mabel Souther, daughter of Herbert Souther and Emma Gertrude Miller, on 9 October 1932 at Weymouth, Massachusetts.1 Raymond Rich Freeman Jr. and Louise Mabel Souther were divorced on 31 August 1965 at Massachusetts. Raymond Rich Freeman Jr. died on 24 March 1990 at Hyannis, Massachusetts, at age 79. He was buried at Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Excerpts taken from CAPE CODE RAILROADS - Including Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, by Robert H. Farson, pp. 281 & 285.

Her brother (as said by Helen (Freeman) OLSON), Raymond R. FREEMAN, Jr., use to shoot the green, glass insulators on the telegraph pole cross-arms with a .22 caliber rifle. They would shatter and fall off. New Haven Railroad police would come down by train and ask questions and try to find out who was doing it but they never did. The green insulators were popular targets, as highway signs are today in areas where there is a lot of hunting. Raymond collected a basket full of them after the railroad was abandoned out to Provincetown. Some people use them for door stops and they are still for sale at antique shops and flea markets. When the rails were taken up in 1960s and removed in gondola cars, the wooden ties were left along the roadbed or thrown aside. People backed up small trucks along the right-of-way and loaded the ties and took them home.

Raymond FREEMAN worked on the steamer Dorthy Bradford that for years made summer runs between Boston and Provincetown as did the S.S. Steel Pier. The run across Massachusetts Bay was a popular one. Many passengers took the morning boat from Boston and then the train from Provincetown back to Boston. Others went the other way with the train from South Station to Provincetown and the boat to Boston. Most, however, took the boat round trip and in the evenings there were excursions advertised as Moonlight Cruises which lasted three or four hours. These were popular voyages to nowhere, featuring live music with a dance orchestra. During prohibition, Raymond would buy bootleg liquor in Provincetown for $1 a bottle and sell it to boat passengers for $3. Another fine source of additional income on the Dorothy Bradford was buying up staterooms from the purser and then once out on the water keeping a lookout for heavily romantic couples in need of a bed and privacy. Negotiating the rental of a stateroom with the man was often a quick transaction. The Dorothy Bradford could hold 1,200 passengers and whether on a daytime cruise to Provincetown or an evening trip, there were times when all the staterooms were occupied. Human nature greatly augmented the small salaries paid to some enterprising crew members on those ships.

Edward Brush Souther

M, b. 29 January 1827, d. 6 August 1906
Edward Brush Souther
From the collection of: Barbara Jean (Mead) Sprouse
     Edward Brush Souther was Stationery Store. He was EDWARD B. SOUTHER, of Ouincy, a dealer in newspapers, periodicals, fancy articles and cutlery, was born in this town, January 29, 1827. A son of John Souther, he is a lineal descendant in the seventh generation of Joseph Souther (first), a cooper by occupation, who was married in Boston, October 22, 1657, by Governor Endicott, to Elizabeth Fairfielde. She was a daughter of Daniel Fairfielde, who was a member of Pastor John Robinson's church in Leyden. Born in Boston in 1640, she died in that city, October 14, 1730.

Joseph Souther (second), born in Hingham, Mass., August 20, 1658, married Hannah, daughter of Christopher and Ann Holland, and, as appears from his father's will, died before December 14, 1696. Joseph Souther (third), who was born February 27, 1685, spent his active years occupied in the calling of a shipwright. On April 22, 1708, he married Content Tower, who died December 17, 1730.

Joseph Souther (fourth), a native of Cohasset, bom November 20, 1721, married Abigail Kent, October 10, 1744; and both died in 1808. Their son, John Souther, the grandfather of Edward B., born in Hingham, Mass., February 15, 1755, married on December 21, 1780, Deborah Leavitt.

John Souther (second), the father of Edward B., was born September 13, 17S1, in the part of Cohasset that was then known as
Beechwood Swamp. When he was a lad he removed with his parents to Hingham, where he attended the district school and then the Derby Academy. Afterward he worked at ship-building with his father, whom he succeeded in business, carrying it on alone from
the time of his father's death until 1815. Coming then to Norfolk County, he bought a large tract of land situated about half-way between Quincy ami Quincy Point, and which was afterward known as Souther's Hill. Here he had carried on ship-building for some years when, in 1835, he retired in favor of his eldest son, John I. Souther. For some years he was a stockholder of the Mount Wollaston Bank. He was a Whig in politics; and, besides serving as Selectman for a long period, he represented the town in the State legislature several terms. He was quite prominent in local matters, taking great interest in all beneficial enterprises, and was one of the building committee of the town hall and of Adams Temple, the Unitarian church. On January 20, 1805, he married Lydia Lincoln, a daughter (if Jonathan and Lydia (Nichols) Lincoln, of Hingham, and by her became the father of ten children. These were: John, born February 2, 1S06, who died October 18, 1891; William, born March 7, 1808, who died July 8, 1867; Henry, born May G, 1810, who died May g, 1892; George, born March 21, 1813, who died October 19, 1837; Frederick, born April 11, 1815, who resides in Quincy ; Lydia L. , bom March 6, 1N17, who on August 30, 1838, married the late T. W. Averill, and died March 1, 1891 ; Charles Nichols, born May 11, 1 8 1 9, who is a resident of Napa City, Cal; Hannah Lincoln, born July 27, 1821, who is the wife of Emery Souther; Catherine C. , born January 20, 1824, who married William Appleton, now of Westboro, Mass; ami Edward B., the subject of this biography. Both parents were active members of the Unitarian church. The father's death occurred in March, 1S78.

Edward B. Souther attended the public schools of Quincy and a private school in Northboro. He afterward became a clerk in the grain store of his brother Henry. Later he bought out his brother, and carried on the business alone for the ensuing two years. In 1850 he went across the Isthmus to Feather River, California, where he met a family party, consisting of his brothers, Henry and Frederick, Henry's son Henry, and his brother-in-law, William Appleton, who had made the journey by way of the Cape. They all went directly to the mines; but Mr. Souther stayed but a year, preferring life in Massachusetts. On October 21, 1851, shortly after his return
home, he went on a gunning excursion, and was so unfortunate as to shoot off his right hand while loading his gun. In the following
January he took charge of the grist-mill on the property his father had purchased when he first came to this town, and operated it until 1858. On March 29, 1869, he bought his present business, which was then very small, handling but one edition of one paper each day. He has since greatly enlarged his operations, receiving four editions of the Boston Globe and three of the other daily papers. He has also a large trade in the leading magazines, and in fancy articles, tobacco, and cutlery, carrying the best line of the latter to be found outside of Boston.

Mr. Souther is a Past Grand of Mount Wollaston Lodge, and treasurer of Manet Encampment, I. O. O. F., and a member of Shawmut
Canton, Patriarchs Militant. On February 26, 1846, he was first married to Sarah H., daughter of Josiah Adams, of Quincy. Of his six children, four are now living, namely: Sarah Adelaide, the wife of Tilson A. Mead, who is the principal of the Chapman School, East Boston.Mass; Edward W. and Henry Lincoln, both of Boston; and Elizabeth Adams, the wife of Dr. Frederick Illsley, of Chelsea, Mass. The mother, who was an active member of the Unitarian church, to which Mr. Souther also belongs, died October 29, 1868. Since then he married Mary E., daughter of Perez Chubbuck, of Quincy. Of the two children of this marriage, Mary Adams is living.

1890s. He was membership Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Patriarchs Militant and Knights of Pythias. He was born on 29 January 1827 at Quincy, Massachusetts.1,2 He was the son of John Souther Jr. and Lydia Nichols Lincoln. Edward Brush Souther was baptized on 23 June 1827 at John Souther, Jr.'s home, Quincy, Massachusetts.3 Marriage banns for Edward Brush Souther and Sarah Hardwick Adams were published on 8 February 1846 at Quincy, Massachusetts.4 Edward Brush Souther married first to Sarah Hardwick Adams, daughter of Josiah Adams Jr. and Sarah Peck Hardwick, on 26 February 1846 at Quincy, Massachusetts.5,1 Edward Brush Souther married Mary Crosby Chubbuck, daughter of Perez Chubbuck and Mary Crosby Adams, on 9 June 1873 at Quincy, Massachusetts.4 Edward Brush Souther married second to Mary Crosby Chubbuck, daughter of Perez Chubbuck and Mary Crosby Adams, on 19 July 1873 at Quincy, Massachusetts.6 Edward Brush Souther appeared on the census of 1880 at Foster Street, Quincy, Massachusetts.7 He appeared on the census of 1900 at 2 Foster Street, Quincy, Massachusetts.8 He died on 6 August 1906 at Quincy, Massachusetts, at age 79.9 He was obituary on 9 August 1906 at Quincy Daily Ledger, Quincy, Massachusetts. He was buried at Mount Wollaston Cemetery, Lot #151, Plot #13, Quincy, Massachusetts. In 1852, Edward could be found listed as a Grain Dealer. Edward operated a Newspaper and Periodical store (see advertisement elsewhere). According to the Dorchester and Quincy Directory of 1868-9, his store was located at 88 Hancock Street and his home at 69 Hancock Street, Quincy. His store was later moved to 1 Granite Street, the site of the Granite Trust Company (now the First National Bank of Boston and most recently, BankBoston).

In the mid 1800's, the California Gold Rush provided new opportunities in the "West" and Edward and his older brothers Henry and Frederick, Henry's son Henry and his Brother-in-Law, William Appleton were four of the more adventurous and enterprising men who left Quincy for the new "promised land". The complete diary of Henry Souther, describing the details of the Souther's Gold Rush adventures has been located at Yale University. The Souther Family Association has a copy of that diary (sponsored by Christopher H. Souther of Virginia). It appears that Henry, Frederick and the others left for California first and then was later joined by Edward. Edward left in 1850 via the Isthmus of Panama and joined his relatives (who had traveled via the Cape of Good Hope) at Feather River, California. From a travel permit dated the 18th of February 1850, signed by then Governor, George N. Briggs for Edward Brush Souther to travel to California and elswhere, I can find his physical description.

Age: 73 Years; Stature: 5'9"; Complexion: Light; Eyes: Blue & Hair: Brown.

A 19 Dec 1863, Quincy Patriot Ledger tells of a purchase that Edward made:

Edward assumed ownership and management of the tidal grist mill after returning from the west. Most of the grain was imported from the west, by railroad, and the Souther Grist Mill did a booming business.

Another Quincy Ledger article provides more details:

PURCHASED AT A BARGAIN. Mr. Edward B. Souther purchased at auction on Saturday last all the property belonging to the Quincy Canal Corporation in this town, for the low sum of ten dollars, besides the debts, which amounts to about three hundred dollars, which he is to pay. The property is worth a much larger sum, but owing to certain conditions, such as keeping the locks in repair, etc., it was sold for a mere trifle.

An article found in the Quincy Patriot Ledger, of 1 Nov 1851, Edward was involved in an accident at Black Rock in Cohasset on 21 Oct 1851. He and three other men were out shooting sea fowl. While loading the barrels of his gun, the other barrel discharged accidently and he shot off his hand.

The Souther Family Association has a gift of a photograph of Edward Brush Souther. The caption under the photograph says: " E. B. Souther, Hospital Sergt., 1st Regt.

Edward was a Past Grand Master of Mount Wollaston Lodge, and treasurer of Manet Encampment, I. O. O. F., a member of Shawmut Canton, Patriarchs Militant and a member of the Knights of Pythias which he joined in April 1870.

Edward was afforded an "Odd Fellow Funeral", held from the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Tilson Anderson Mead at Allston. The burial was at Mount Wollaston Cemetery in Quincy with delegations from Mount Wollaston Lodge of Odd Fellows, Manet Encampment and George L. Gill Rebekah Lodge which met the remains and escorted them to the cemetery, where an Odd Fellows ceremony was performed by Noble Grande John W. Nash and Chaplain James Moorehead, Jr.

Edward and his two wives are buried in Mount Wollaston Cemetery, in Quincy. He was described on 16 July 2010 at 55035347.
