Thanks for your reply.Can you provide the names of all the children of Augustus D. Coleman and Abby (Adams) Coleman?I only know of two: James Redmond Coleman b. ca. 1843 and Moses Coleman born ca. 1846.This information is found in the 1850 census of Pittsylvania County, VA.
As I reported in my first message, the name "Redmond" was used for a son of Elijah Adams (1764-1814).Also, the names "Moses" and "James" appear in this group of Adamses, though both are more common names than "Redmond."
You mentioned having photos of the gravestones for Augustus D. Coleman and wife Abby.Could you list what it says on them?Also, if any children are buried in the same family cemetery, please include their names and dates also.Is this cemetery in Pittsylvania County, VA?Where?
I would very much like to help you find the answer to the ancestry of Abby (Adams) Coleman.So, anything else you can provide about this couple or their children would be most welcome and potentially very useful in determining her family.For instance, it could be very important if you know anything about possible siblings to her. Tracing THEIR ancestry might be easier than tracing hers.Thanks!
