Sixth Generation


322. Martha WALTERS was born circa 1827 in Virginia. She died on 4 February 1848 at the age of 21.

Here would be a clue to this elder daughter of Alexander's:
21 Oct 1844, Daniel Coleman Jr., marriage bond to Martha Ann Walters. Champness A. Terry, Bondsman. Alexander J. Walters, Father.
[If she's marrying in 1844, she's probably at least 18 - or born say about 1825 which works for both 1830 & 1840 censuses] More likely she was 16 or 17, born after Alexander's marriage to Louisa Wilson.


There are two Daniel Colemans in Pittsylvania Co in 1850, neither marked as a senior or junior.
One is age 38, and has Elizabeth, age 17, in his household. Probably a wife, but could be a daughter - NOT Martha Ann for sure. [If this is Daniel Jr as it would seem to be, perhaps Martha died.]
The other Daniel Coleman was age 82, his wife Anna P. age 72. [This was the Daniel Coleman who married Anna Payne Harrison, a sister to Mary Dillard Harrison who married Edmund Richardson that were parents of Ann Eliza Payne Richardson, first wife of Azariah Graves Walters.]
No help there.
There was also a Daniel S. Coleman in Caswell Co NC in 1850. He was age 65, b. VA and had living with him, Ann S. age 23, Spillsby age 22, and Bartlett T., age 21, all born in Caswell Co.
