Robert Coleman, esq.
On May 3, 1811 my great great grandfather, Benjamin, was born on the property of Robert Coleman, esq. in Lebanon County, PA. Coleman was a wealthy ironmaster, who had come to America from Ireland in 1764, and whose primary residence was in Lancaster, PA. When he received his freedom sometime in the late 1830's, Benjamin took the surname Baker,
If anyone has relatives whose ancestors were once numbered among Coleman's slaves, I would be anxious to compare notes with you.
