Leonard Ellington1

Descendants of John Coleman & Elizabeth Lawrason
     Leonard Ellington married Geraldine Vrooman, daughter of Admiral Nelson Vrooman and Rachel Coleman, in 1868.1 Such information to be found for Leonard Ellington is rudimentary. Geraldine's obituary casts her as Mrs. Ellington. Toronto city directoryinformation of the years prior to her death refer to her as the widowof Leonard. Leonard makes an appearance in the 1878-79 Hamilton city directory. He is described as a salesman and his residence is given as68 Catherine St. South. He is also there, less profession, in the 1880 Hamilton directory and at the same address. After that, I do not find the Ellingtons in the directories at all, though Geraldine appears in Hamilton in the 1881 census. To this point, I have not been able tofind a death registration for Leonard, so what happened to him is unknown.1
