     Thomas Stanley Coleman was born on 20 June 1893.1 He was the son of Wesley Coleman and Margaret Cunningham.1 He married Alma Dorothea Maas.1 He died on 12 May 1954 at age 60.1 He was buried at Troy Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 Thomas Stanley Coleman went by the name of Stan. He was a postal clerk working on the mail coaches that were attached to many of the trains in Canada in the later 19th century and as late as the 1950s. Stan worked for many years on a Hamilton to Meaford mail coach sorting mail. Mail was often placed directly onto the mail coaches and it had to be not only sorted, but cancellations had to be applied to the stamps on the envelopes. Stan one was of the few mail coach postal clerks that had his own initials on his cancellation device, T.S.C. Stan's son Bob tells me that the stamps weren't actually postmarked with the clerks' initials hammers, but applied to the mail wrappers of the already sorted mail which was handed off at various stations on the line.1
