John Hewes, Re: John Freeland and Theophilis Minor

I don't know....John Freeland was a cotton broker and a tobacco broker...his brother-in-law was Alfred Penn, a banker and an investor...do any of these things ring a bell? Also, John Freeland marched into Tampico Bay under the command of Winfeld Scott. Later, he went to the gold rush where he was a judge in Bidwell's Bar (?). I would love to learn more about Mr. Minor. I think John Freeland was a very shrewd businessman, and would not have hesitated to file a lawsuit here or there. This is very interesting!
