States: Georgia: Screven
I just looked that up at the Archives last month. That roll of microfilm was easy to find with help from the staff there. Locating Washington Freeman on the roll was not -- but I found him. He is on a list of Georgia Militia Officers. The list begins with a description of the Divisions, Brigades, and County organization (November 1817). Each county has officers -- usually Captains, 1st and 2nd Lieuts., and Ensigns. All the counties are mentioned several times (possible a big turn over of personnel)on the list. At one point the list designates the Screven County officers with Washington Freeman listed as an Ensign. There is no date next to his name. Other Screven County Officers named just above him are James Buford, Captain, 1821; James Taylor, 1st Lieut. 1823; George Dixon 2nd Lieut. 1826; and then Washington Freeman, Ensign (no date).
Hope this helps!
