Family from James Coleman of Georgia, born in Georgia about 1800
family is currently traced back to James Coleman, who was born in Georgia
in about 1800 or 1801. The earliest known appearance of James Coleman
and his family is in the 1840 US Census for Henry County, Georgia. It
says that in his household, for this census, there was one male between
5 and 10 years of age (that would be son James McIntosh son), one male
between 10 and 15 years of age (that would be son John M.C. Coleman),
and one male between 40 and 50 years of age (father James himself). Also
enumerated are one female under the age of 5 (that would be the daughter
we only know as M. R. or M. K. Coleman), one female between 5 and 10 years
of age (not sure who this is), and one female between 15 and 20 (this
should be the oldest child, daughter Sarah Coleman, who was born, according
to what I have, in 1825). For some odd reason, and unless I recorded the
census information wrong,
M. C. Coleman (1827-1885) was my GG Grandfather. Currently, I have no
photo of him, but still hold out hope that one will be found.
John M. C. Coleman was married to Sarah Wingfield Ogletree and they had the following children: Walter Phlem Coleman (1869-1933), Quinn Coleman (1874-1948), David Coleman (1875-abt. 1895) and Joshua Coleman (1878-?). Walter Phlem Coleman was my Great Grandfather, and his picture is below.
WHAT WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR:
was James born?
The Coleman family, in Henry and Spalding Counties, had strong connections to the Starr, Ogletree and Elder families. This includes marriage relationships, and indicates that to some extent their movement or migration patterns were in concert with each other to some degree.
