Great-granddaughter of Catherine Jones.
Descendants of Catherine Jones & William Coleman
     Ida Manetta Coleman was born on 7 September 1870 at Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 She was the daughter of George W. Coleman and Harriet Church.1 She married George Davidson on 10 July 1891 at Brantford, Brant County, Ontario. (notes: 001343-1891 (Brant Co.) George DAVIDSON, 33, knitter, Scotland, Paris, s/o Thomas & Janet, married Ida Manetta COLEMAN, 20, Canada, Paris,d/o George & Harriet, witn: Alven COLEMAN of Galt & Jessie FLANAGAN of Paris, 1 Jul 1891 at Brantford.).1 As I recall the story, George at one time had his own textile mill at Paris. At some point the family moved to Indiana. I can recall their daughter Gladys visiting with grandmother and Aunt Vera. Gladys brought a nephew and niece with her that trip, Stephen and Trish, and I believe that they were Roy's children.

I've found George and Ida in Fort Wayne City, Indiana, in the 1930 U.S. census. He is 72 and she 59. They have lodgers, but none of the lodgers appear to be a family connection. He is said to be a foreman in ahosiery mill. Agewise, Ida's age as stated is close to correct.

They likely died in Fort Wayne.

In the 1920 census, her age is written illegibly, but 49 would be right. He is said to be 62 and foreman in a knitting mill. Two of their children are with them: Gladys A. and Earl G. She is said to be 20 and he 25. She is a stenographer in a ? store and he is a machinist in a knitting mill. In 1930 he is a lodger in South Bend City, St. Joseph Co., Portage Twp. and a machinist in a hosiery mill. No evidence there of a family.

I've found no sign of Roy so far.

Ida's Ontario birth registration number is 014051-70

Ida was residing in Paris, Ontario, with her sister Villa, at the time of the 1891 census, taken April 6. She was said to be 20 and Villa 17. They wer apparently boarding with a Catherine Crawford. a widow. See D2. page 6, T-6326.1
