coleman family origin and my descent
I am interested to know what may be the origin of the family having the surname Coleman.Are they Wlesh, English?And what are the origins of the family and the name?
Also, I am supposedly descended from the Coleman family but have no real information on this.All I have found is a reference that my Talitha Cox, who married Isham Browder, had a mother named Mary who some believe to have been a Coleman.So, in other words, the parents of Talitha Cox were Capt. John Cox and Mary (Coleman?).I do know that Isham and Talitha Browder had a son, Isham C. Browder, so his middle name could possibly have stood for Coleman.
Any information would be welcome.
