COLEMAN of Wakefield, VA & Buffalo, NY
A good friend is seeking to locate whatever genealogical information he can about his maternal great-grandmother and her ancestors.
What he knows is as follows:
Her name was Ellen Louise COLEMAN.
Interestingly, in the 1910 census (when Ellen was 27), there were two COLEMAN families living nextdoor to Robert and Ellen. In the house nextdoor, there are a John and Martha COLEMAN, aged 59 and 52 respectively. Next to them are a Thomas and Martha COLEMAN, ages 49 and 42. It would not be a far stretch to presume that one of these couples are Ellen's parents, but that is not necessarily the case.
If anyone has encountered these surnames and locales in their research, I would certainly appreciate hearing from you!
