John P. Coleman

Source: Atlas of Montgomery County, Indiana (Chicago: Beers, 1878) p 51

COLEMAN, John, PO Darlington; Farmer, Sec 35; son of John & Nancy; who settled in Crawfordsville Dec 2, 1838; was b. in Warren Co OH Oct 29, 1835; marr. to Mary Coleman of this township Feb 12, 1857. They have 3 children; William T.; Charles B. and Nellie M.

Note: If this is the John Coleman, that I think he is, He was the son of John and Nancy (Proud) Coleman. He married his cousin... Mary Coleman- the daughter of Asa and Anna (Scott) Coleman Aza, Mary Coleman's father gave her and her sister Caroline Coleman Guntle a farm in Montgomery Co. IN as wedding presents. (I have the bio on Aza Coleman found in History of Warren Co. Ohio.) His family originated in Fayette Co. PA. The father being John Coleman and mother Margaret (Savage) John came to USA from Holland with his parents (Joseph and Elizabeth). John was a blacksmith and it was said that he shoed the horse of George Washington and he nailed them on backwards to fool the British. The children were Aza, (1811 - 1891) - Joseph, Nancy, John, and Josiah (1816-1898) The family ended up in Warren Co. Ohio, where Aza stayed...Dr. Josiah Coleman went to Nodaway Co. Mo. then to Montgomery co. KS.

I have a lot of information on this family ..too much to list here...if you're interested please email. I also have info on the Guntle family. Paula Coleman Icanswing@aol.com
