William Wesley Freel (1844-1926) was the son of James Freel and Mary Gwinn. He married Mary L. Sherman, 1867 in Warren Co., Iowa. Mary died in 1878. They are both buried in the Hartford Cemetery, Richland Twp, Warren Co., Iowa.

I also have a W. W. Freel (birth/death dates unknown to me) who married Viana Porter (aka Parmelia Viena Porter)on 23 Apr 1887 in Marion Co., Iowa. Viana had been previously married to a William Henry McBride and had at least 2 children by him (Nellie and Cora).

Is it possible that William Wesley Freel and W. W. Freel are the same person? Both men were born in Indiana.
