I’m a descendant of Robert Coleman through Lindsay Byrd
Dickinson and Susan Harris Willis of Spotsylvania County , Va. The
information that is listed regarding their children contains numerous
errors - incorrect birth and death dates, incorrect names, incorrect
birth order. It also lists only seven children when in fact there were
eight, all of whom lived into adulthood, most into their 80s and 90s.
I saw your time line and the information is wrong on
Grover Bradley, Becky Smithers, Mary Blondell & Norman Thomas Griffin.
They have never been to Ca. in their lives. that is my Grandfather,
Grandmother Aunt & Uncle.
i am a decendant of valentine.parrish b, abt 1760
goochland co ,va d, 1790 granville,co,nc. he married a betsy,holland
they had my g-grndfa james,parrish b, 1825- tenn d, after 1868 ala. the
prior ancestor;s that seem to connect me is the jhon,parrish b, 1694,
goochland co ,va d, 1751, he married mary,judith, they had a son name
william,parrish b, 1725 goochland co ,va d, 1790 granville co.nc. my
ggg-grndfa. he may have married mary ann,winston, willam and mary ann
had my gg-grndfa valentine. parrish the other children to elder
jhon,parrish were a son name bressie, /brisy / brissie. and a son name
charles, jhon left in charge his estate to his oldest living son bressie.
there may have been a joseph the oldest but he was not mention so
history suggest he may have died or had enough land in virgina that he
did not need his father;s. after jhon died in 1751 it seem bressie and
charles and my wiiliam migarted over into granville co ,nc
Chapman S. Coleman
I just want to congratulate you on such a fine site. I did run across
something that needs clarification, as I'd originally made a mistake
with one of my ancestors when I first started doing research many years
ago. I lived in Salt Lake City at the time and had visited the fine
genealogy library that is there.
I had traced my ancestors back to Chapman S. Coleman, who married
Mary Ann Carter of Lincoln County, Kentucky. I had run across an
unpublished manuscript that had listed Chapman's parents as Meridith R.
Coleman and Susan Dedman, as noted below. I then ran across an article
in the Kentucky Genealogy Society (I believe) magazine that listed
Chapman's parents as Covington Coleman and Lucy Day, also as noted
below. It listed Mary Jane Carter as Chapman's sister, who both died on
the same day.
I don't believe I had a date on the Meridith information, so I
improperly made the assumption that Meridith was the father of my
Chapman. The information in the genealogy magazine was from a state
death roll, or something like that—coincidentally, the only year the
state required that all deaths in the state need to be reported to the
state, at least in that generation or time period, as near as I can
remember. It may have been the only time.
Is it possible there were two Chapman Colemans who married two Mary
Ann Carters, one generation apart? I know that's what you show, but
then, I made the same mistake, too. That's not saying it's a mistake,
but it would ease my conscience if I knew for sure there exists
documentation that would show this.
Judge S. Bernard Coleman's (I think that was his name) fine book
picked up where I left off in Kentucky, and his was well documented, I
I'm very impressed with the work you've done putting together this
website (http://colemangenealogy.ucan.us/index.htm). I can only imagine
all the work that went into creating the site, let alone all the work
you must have done to gather all the information together. I know how
much work it took just to find what I've found on my individual line,
let alone fourteen generations of lines. I applaud you. Keep up the good

verify the information I give as well. I have documentation for most of
my information. God bless you for your hard work. I am so thrilled to
have found your website. I will continue working on my information and
