      Freeland is located near Hazelton in Luzerne Co PA.

      If ancestors settled there, they were probably bituminous (soft)
      coal miners living in this NE PA coal mining region.
      There was an almost direct pipeline of immigrants from Slovakia
      to the coal mines here.
      From the Philadelphia port of entry, it was only a 110 mile train
      ride.

      Once scanned the 1900/1910/1920 U.S. Census enumeration microfilms
      for the Scranton and Hazelton areas, line by line.
      Of course, at the time wasn't looking for your particular surnames.
