     Wesley Coleman was born on 15 November 1847 at Troy, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 He was the son of Daniel Coleman and Mary Abel.1 He married Margaret Cunningham on 15 November 1882 at Hamilton, Ontario.1 He died on 29 June 1932 at Hamilton, Ontario, at age 84.1 He was buried on 1 July 1932 at Troy Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 Wes Coleman was a supporter of the Liberals. His brother George was a Conservative. One day they got into a heated argument and neither was making headway. Finally George said in exasperation, 'Damn it, Wes, if a pig were running for the Liberals you'd vote for him!' Wes's response was, 'Damn right!'

Wesley's death registration, 037456-32, shows that he died at the home of his son, Thomas S. Coleman of 18 Locke St. South, in Hamilton, where he is said to have lived some six years. His birth date is given on his death registration and I have entered that in this tree. He is said to be the son of Daniel Coleman and Mary Abel. The place of birthfor both is given as Troy. Considering the family history, this is likely correct in both cases.

Wes is said to have died of apoplexy with arterio swclerosis as a contributing cause.1
