Hi Mary,

I have Colemans in MS and remembered two with the name Minor Coleman. One in MS and one in DC. The one in DC may be yours. Here is the information from

Civil War Pension Index: General Index to Pension File, 1861-1934

Name of Soldier: Coleman, Minor
Name of Dependent:
Widow, Coleman, Mary
Service: I, 1 USC Inf.

Date of Filing: 1890 July 16
Claimant: Invalid
Application No.: 815941

State From
Which Filed: DC.

Date of Filing: 1927 Dec 16
Claimant: Widow
Application No.: 1598607

You might want to go to the National Archives web site to see if there is a pension file available. Here is a link:
National Archives and Records Adminstration
Research in Military Records: Civil War

There are instructions on the National Archives and Records Adminstration web site on how to obtain records. I have ordered pension records online in the past.

I hope this helps.
