Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     Helen Coleman was born on 28 October 1799 at Pennsylvania.1 She was the daughter of John Coleman and Elizabeth Lawrason.1 She married Adam Misener on 21 April 1831 at Gore District, Canada West. (notes: The marriage date of April 21, 1831, is per Misener family information and is likely correct. The marriage bond for Adam and Helen was issued April 16, 1831. The bond, number 2456, ex C-6780, was issued at Brantford. The bondsmen were Henry Moe and Jeriah Bonham. The document is badly faded, but Helen's name is given as Eleanor. Since Helen is how her name is shown on her gravestone, this usage has been followed in this tree. The place of their marriage is unknown, but was almost certainly in the Gore District. Gore District records have not survivedfrom the 1830s. It's possible that they were married in Brantford, but Beverly or Dumfries Townships are also possible.).1 She died on 16 April 1895 at Troy, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario, at age 95.1 She was buried at Troy Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 Ontario Marriage Bonds 1803-1834, Wilson, Hunterdon House, p198.

Helena's death registration number is 019139-95. It gives her place of birth as United States, Penn. The informant was Dr. Addison. He must have gotten his information from a family member.

Helena's name is variously reported as Elinor and as Helen. Some combination of both may be correct. That she was a daughter of John Coleman seems reasonable to assert. She and her husband had a son that theynamed John Coleman Misener (he went by Cole Misener). Also, there isa record in the Abstract Indexes for Beverly showing a transfer of land from John Coleman to Elinor in 1829 for one acre of C3-L6.1
