Grandson of Catherine Jones.
Descendants of Catherine Jones & William Coleman
     Franklin B. Coleman was born in 1859 at Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 He was the son of Andrew Coleman and Isabella Templeton.1 He married Mary Ann Corey on 26 November 1879 at South Dumfries Twp, Brant County, Ontario. (notes: Franklin and Mary Ann's marriage registration number is 001289-79.).1 A descendant of Nettie Bell has information that Franklin Coleman lived in Detroit in later years, but I have been unable to find the family in Michigan in the U.S. census years available.

001289-79 ( Brant Co) Franklin A. COLMAN , 20 , farmer , Beverley , same , s/o Andrew & Isabella , married Mary Ann COREY , 21 , Beverley, South Dumfries , d/o George & Elisabeth , witn: ? MISNER of Beverley & Mary SONGMERKER? Of South Dumfries , 26 Nov 1879 at South Dumfries.

An examination of the microfilm of the marriage registration written in South Dumfries, Brant County, shows the witnesses as Adam Misner of Beverly and Mary Songmaker of South Dumfries. The minister officiating appears to be Rev. Charles E. Benson. The clerk's handwriting is bad. The name of the witness, 'Songmaker' looks as good as anything, though I have a notion, from comparing other specimens of the same handwriting, that the first letter is an L.

The family is in Beverly Township in the 1881 census. They have with them a Thomas Coleman, age 8. At this point I do not know who Thomas is:
