Henderson J. Coleman

Source: H. W. Beckwith Montgomery Co Indiana History (Chicago: HH Hill, 1881) p 198

Henderson J. COLEMAN, farmer and veterinary surgeon, Crawfordsville, was born in Scott Co, IN, Jan 14, 1829. His parents, John and Mary (JACOBS) Coleman, removed thence to Franklin Co. in his early infancy and lived there until 1833; at that date, they came to Union Twp. and made their residence on the homestead where Mr. Coleman now lives. His mother died of cancer Aug. 29, 1864, at the age of 68; and his father d. April 19, 1874 aged 84 years. Mr. Coleman received a common school education and 25 or 30 years ago was much of the time engaged as a pedagogue, but as he was a natural penman his teaching was chiefly limited to writing classes. At that day he was accounted the champion penman of Montgomery County. With this exception, he has always led the life of a farmer until within very recent years he has grown into the practice of veterinary science, which for 25 years he has been studying and applying in his own business. For some time, at first, he bought diseased and disabled horses, and after curing, sold them. His successful treatment of these animals gave him a gradually extending reputation and the demands which the public at length made upon his time rendered it necessary that he should give up either his farming or his practice. Recently he has operated his farm by hired help, and about a year ago advertised as a practitioner. He attends three days in the week at the livery stable of Smith & Bro in Crawfordsville, where he responds to all professional calls. In 1876 and again in 1880, Mr C. listed for taxation all the real estate in the So. half of Union Twp. The farm he owns comprises 138 acres, situated three and one half mi. so of Crawfordsville and valued at $6,000. This property he has accumulated by his own unaided industry. He has been a Mason 18 years and a life long Republican. His marriage with Deborah EDWARDS, who was b. March 6, 1833 was celebrated on Sept 16, 1856. The fruits of this union have been 9 children: Elizabeth (dec); Mary Ellen (dec); Emma E, wife of Edward KELSEY ; Susie Edna; Josiah (dec.); Julia; William R; Samuel and John. Mrs. Coleman belongs to the Christian Church.
