Thank You To Susan Dunbar, genealogist from Waupaca County, Wisconsin for finding this deed that shows when my 3rd great-grandfather Azro Freeman’s family moved from Belmont, Wisconsin to Dayton, Wisconsin. Considering Azro volunteered for the Union, the war may have an influence on their decision to move.
