Grandson of Catherine Jones.
Descendants of Catherine Jones & William Coleman
     James M. Coleman was born in 1845 at Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 He was the son of Andrew Coleman and Isabella Templeton.1 He married Keziah Shannon on 25 May 1868 at Wentworth County, Ontario. (notes: The marriage registration for James and Keziah reads:
Coleman, James M., 22
Andrew & Isbella
Shannon, Keziah, 18
Dundas Ont.
Jacob & Lucinda
James Vansickle, Beverly
Mary Shannon, Beverly
The 1871 census at Beverly, A2, page 66, presents a couple of minor problems. Keziah's name is shown as Sophia. Since Keziah outlived James, and at the time of the 1881 census the children were with her in Dundas, I believe that this will be an enumerator's error. Also, there is an illegible entry for their first child, which I thought might be George, but I now believe is Eleanor. It was written badly. Also in the household at the time of the 1871 census is a Marthy Shannon, age 13.1
