Descendants of Robert Coleman of Nansemond County Virginia 1684-1930

Chapter 14.  Colemans of Fair Bluff, Columbus County, NC

 

Recall from Chapter 6, we had the following family:

(182) Moses Coleman, II (Moses I, Robert II, Robert I)
     b. c1740 Edgecombe NC, also lived in Johnson, Bladen, and Columbus Counties of North Carolina. [Roper]

     His will gives his wife's name as Luraine; Roper gives it as "Lourena (possibly FAULK)".
     Per his will dated May 25, 1799 [Campbell, Wanda S., 1962],
     their children were:

[Roper, 1999]

Powel, 1971 records the family of Moses Coleman of Fair Bluff, North Carolina, as one of the early families settling in the area.  He states Moses Coleman came from Edgecombe County.  He states:
(182) Moses and Luraine Coleman had these children:

(184) 1.  John Coleman
(185) 2.  Theophilus Coleman, a Infantry private in Rev. War
(186) 3.  Amos Coleman        b. 1771 [1850 Columbus County Census]
(187) 4.  Phillip Coleman     b. between 1770 and 1780 [1830 and 1840 Columbus County Census Records]
(188) 5.  Moses Coleman, Jr.
(189) 6.  Dempsey Coleman
(190) 7.  Henry Coleman
(191) 8.  Lucretia Coleman
(193) 9.  Polly Coleman
(192) 10. Charity Coleman, b. 1797

(185) Theophilus Coleman (Moses II, Moses I, Robert II, Robert I) married Kisiah Unknown. From his pension application he appeared 02/10/1834, a resident of Columbus County, North Carolina, at the age of 72 years, the 2nd day of May 1833. He entered the service as a private for six months in the Bladen Militia, then a resident of Bladen County, NC. He was under Capt. Daniel Shipman in the fall of 1777. His father objected because he was only 16 years old, and thus not able to perform militia duty. The company rendezvoused at Elizabethtown with several other militia companies, under command of Colonel Wade, and marched under command of Gen. Ashe. He recalled Capt. Leggets and Elliots companies. They crossed the Pee Dee River at Port's Ferry and to the lower part of South Carolina to Brier Creek in Georgia, crossing the Savannah River at Augusta.

While camped between the creek and the river, the Americans were surprised and defeated in the early part of the day. He said General Ashe was advised of enemy in the immediate vicinity but took no precaution against attack. They were only able to get off one volley of fire before having to swim the river. They formed up and marched homeward, crossing the Pee Dee again at Port's Ferry. They went through Fayetteville and Cross Creek where they joined up with back country militia under command of Gen. Rutherford. He was stationed there to the end of his term of service. He received a discharge from Gen. Ashe but it had been lost or destroyed. This was common. There were more assignments and terms of service, and Theophilus volunteered to join the Bladen Light Horse Militia.

Theo then stated his birth date as 05/02/1761 and said he was born in Edgecombe County, NC, but came with his father to Columbus County before the revolution, and then to Bladen were he had resided ever since. Joel Stevens and Luke R. Simmons testify to knowing Theo and believing him to be a soldier in the revolution.

From the widow's pension application dated 04/01/1844 we get the following:

  Kisiah Coleman appeared before the justice of the peace at age 78 years.
  Theophilus Coleman was born 05/02/1761 [Page 7.jpg] in Edgecombe County, NC.  
  He lived in Columbus County for a time relocating there before the war.
  He relocated to Bladen County where he made his home.[Pension Application,
  Page 7.jpg]

  In 1786, Theophilus married Kisiah Unknown. Theo died 07/09/1843; 
  Kisiah died  8/17/1850.

  Theophilus and Kiziah Coleman had these children:
  
  1.  Martha Jernigan
  2.  Elizabeth Coleman
  3.  Ava Faulk
  4.  Aly Strickland
  5.  Sarah Jernigan
  6.  Kiziah Jernigan
  7.  Theophilus Coleman
  8.  Rhoda Coleman
  9.  Anna Coleman
  10. Moses Coleman
  11. Mary Hammonds
  
  James Hammond, administrator of Kisiah's estate, lived in Horry Dist., SC.
  Theophilus joined military service in the Fall of 1777 at age 16.

From Will Book A of Columbus County, NC [Williamson] we have the following:

(185)  Theophilus Coleman (Moses II, Moses I, Robert II, Robert I) born c1768.

[Williamson, p. 5 except where noted otherwise.]

(224) Patty Coleman married a Jernigan.

(226) Ava Coleman married a Faulk, possibly Richard.

(227) Aley Coleman was born in 1793. She married William 'Billy' Strickland. He was born in 1794 to Jacob and Charity [Worley] Strickland. William had six brothers and three sisters.
[ Post entitled "William [Billy] Strickland" dated 12/28/2006 to the Strickland message board on boards.ancestry.com Author located info on 01/31/2009]

(228) Asa Coleman is recorded by Powell, 1971 as born in 10/10/1796, son of Theophilus.  Asa Coleman built a home in the country between Fair Bluff and Cherry Grove (SE of Fair Bluff).  He married Anna Jane Enzor, daughter of Sommers Enzor.  Annie was born 8/5/1803.  Asa died at the age of 31 on 10/19/1834.  Annie followed almost forty three years later, on 7/3/1887, at the age of 83. There is more on the Enzor Family of Fair Bluff.

(228) Asa Coleman and Anna Jane Enzor Coleman had these children:

(292) 1.  Dempsey Coleman, b. 1823
(293) 2.  Henry Coleman, b. 1830, gave the lot where Fair Bluff Baptist Church
               stood in 1971. (may still be there)
(294) 3.  Carolina Matilda Coleman b. c1820-1840
(295) 4.  Sallie Malinda Coleman   b. c1820-1840

The above years of birth are based on the 1860 U.S. Census of Columbus County, North Carolina

Asa Coleman and Annie Jane Enzor, his wife, were buried in the Coleman Cemetery in Cherry Grove, Columbus County, NC. Their graves record the dates of their birth and death, as given above.  [Powell, 1971]

(292) Dempsey Coleman wife unknown had at least one child:

(1138) 1. Henry Coleman, Jr. b. c1869, Columbus Co, NC, d. Fair Bluff >1930.
[Galloway, 2006]

(1138) Henry Coleman, Jr. married first Cornia Jenkins in Columbus County, NC. He married second Mortie Unknown in 1903 in Columbus County Henry Coleman, Jr. was born ca. 1869 in Columbus County, NC and died in Fair Bluff, Columbus County, NC after 1930.
[Galloway, 2006]

(1138) Henry Coleman, Jr. and had these children:
by Cornia Jenkins

(1139) 1. Dorsey D. Coleman,      b. 1896, died young, 
(1140) 2. Henry Worth Coleman,    b. 1899, 
(1141) 3. Cornie J. Coleman,      b. 1901,

(1143) 5. Dempsey Coleman,        b. 11/10/1909,  d. 10/13/2002 Fair Bluff, Columbus County, NC.

[Galloway, 2006]

(292) Dempsey Coleman and (293) Henry Coleman and their wives are also buried in the Coleman Cemetery in Cherry Grove, Columbus County, NC.  [Powell, 1971]

(292) Dempsey Coleman is found in the 1860 U.S. Census of Columbus County, North Carolina:

household number 0932
(292)   Dempsey Coleman         37   1823   M    Farmer  NC
        Anna J. Coleman         62   1798   F            Sampson Cty, NC
(248)   Mary K. Coleman         22   1838   F            NC
        Wily[sic] J. Gan[o]us   16   1844   M            NC/ Co C, 18th Regt
(232)   Rhoda Coleman           54   1806   F            NC

Seven years later, (292) Dempsey Coleman is listed in the Branson Country Directory for the year 1867-1868 - Columbus County, NC.  He is shown as one of five Commissioners for the county.  He is listed among the Turpentine Distributors in the list of merchants.  He is also listed as a prominent farmer along with another, J M McGougan owning 657 acres; D Coleman owning 1,630 acres; both in Fair Bluff.  There is a business listed as Coleman (D) & Co. in Fair Bluff.  There is a Coleman & Williamson business listed in Cerro Gordo, NC.

(293) Henry Coleman became known as Henry Coleman, Sr. after his brother Dempsey named a son Henry Coleman, Jr as Coleman researcher David Galloway records:

Henry Coleman, Sr. son of Asa Coleman and Anna Enzor married Mary Lizzie Wallace in Columbus County, NC in 1883. There was no issue from this marriage. In his will he mentions nephew Henry Coleman, Jr. He was the son of Dempsey Coleman and Mary Catherine Coleman. Dempsey Coleman of course was the brother of Henry Coleman, Sr.
[Galloway, 2006]

(293) Henry Coleman, Sr is likely the same person found in the 1860 U.S. Census of Columbus County, North Carolina:

household number 0266
(293)   Henry COLEMAN           30   1830   M       Merchant NC/ Co C, 20th Regt
        Giles H. WATSON         23   1837   M       Clerk    Robeson City, NC, CO C, 20th Regt

From Jernigan Reunion #2 p. 184 (229) Sarah Coleman, daughter of the (185) Theophilus Coleman above, married Charles Jernigan. Charles Jernigan may have been a son or grandson of Jesse Jernigan who moved from Wayne County NC to Robeson County NC and then on into Horry District in SC.

We have the family of (229) Sarah Coleman, born c1810, and Charles Jernigan, born c1790, recorded in the 1850 U.S. Census showing Charles, age 60, and Sally age 40. There is a gap in the birth order of the children suggesting the older three, so close to Sally's age, may not have been Sally's. I imagine that Sally was Charles' second wife. From the 1850 U.S. Census of Columbus County, we have:

(377) 1.  Andrew Jernigan,        b. c1825
(378) 2.  David Jernigan,         b. c1828
(379) 3.  Wilson Jernigan,        b. c1830
(381) 5.  Margaret Avy Jernigan,  b. c1835
(380) 4.  Martha Jernigan,        b. c1836
(382) 6.  Willis Jernigan.        b. c1838

This is supported by a posting from another author giving this information from the 1860 U.S. Census for Columbus County, NC:
      Charles Jernigan age 67
(373) Sarah Jernigan   age 50
(377) 1.  Andrew J. Jernigan age 35
(382) 2.  Willis Jernigan age 24
(381) 3.  Margaret Jernigan age 25
(380) 4.  Martha Tyler age 25 also listed her age in
             Raleigh Census is 20

From Jernigan Reunion #2 p. 183, (230) Kessiah Coleman, daughter of the (185) Theophilus Coleman above, married Elias Jernigan, Sr.. Elias was born c1802. They lived in Horry County, SC.

Elias Jernigan and (230) Kessiah Coleman Jernigan had these children:

(1169) 1.  Luvenia Jernigan    b. c1842 m. Tyler
(1170) 2.  Charity Jernigan    b. c1844 m. Grainger
(1171) 3.  Samuel Jernigan     b. Oct 1847 m. Elizabeth
(1172) 4.  Alva Jernigan,      b. c1849 m. Louise
(1173) 5.  Julia Ann Jernigan  b. c1853
(1174) 6.  John Q. Jernigan    b. c1855
(1175) 7.  Elia Jernigan, Jr., b. c1857

[Barbara, by way of a post by Dan Fairfax, Fairfax 2000]


(186) Amos and Winnifred Sparks Coleman had these children:

(236) 1.  Daniel Coleman,            b. 1800
(237) 2.  Bryant Coleman,            b. 1805
(238) 3.  Harris Coleman,            b. 1811
(239) 4.  Vivian Coleman,            b. c1812 [based on husband]
          married Francis Floyd,     b. 1812.

Galloway, perhaps noting the proximity to the households of these children in the 1860 U.S. Census, and other records, has suggested another child of this pair was (1144) Travis Coleman, b. 1805.

From Will Book A of Columbus County, NC [Williamson] we have the following on (186) Amos Coleman, son of (182) Moses Coleman:


(186)  Amos Coleman, Sr. (Moses II, Moses I, Robert II, Robert I)
    b 1771 [1850 Columbus Co Census].
    left a will dated 24 Aug 1855 probated 14 Feb 1860 where:
he left his son (236) Daniel 2 slaves and his son (237) Bryant 2 slaves, though after
Bryant's death, these would be divided between heirs of the other two brothers,
the other son (238) Harris is mentioned.  A daughter, (239) Vivian Floyd, wife of
Francis Floyd is mentioned.  (There is a will for Francis Floyd dated 16 Dec 1885
that lists Adeline Floyd as his wife.)
Executor of Amos Coleman, Sr's will (sons?): (236) Daniel Coleman, (238) Harris Coleman
Witnesses:  Amos' brother, (189) Dempsey Coleman;  Henry Faulk, and  Coleman Faulk.
c.s.c.:  Wm Baldwin. [Williamson, p. 15]

The question is where is Amos Coleman, Jr.? How could there be a Sr. without a Jr. listed in Sr.'s will?

From Roper, 1999, we have Amos' wife's name was Winnifred. From the 1850 Columbus County Census, we see she was 12 years younger, b. 1783 based on her age recorded in 1850 as 67.

The years of birth for the men above is based on the 1860 U.S. Census of Columbus County, North Carolina, the data for which appears later.

(236) Daniel Coleman married Sallie Nickols [Nichols, in Columbus County North Carolina?].  Sallie Nickols Coleman was the daughter of Elias Nichols and Sallie Lewis Nichols.  Daniel and Sallie Nickols Coleman had Sallie Coleman, b. 1834. [Walters, 2002]

The 1840 U.S. Census of Columbus County, North Carolina, page 57, image 13 on HeritageQuest Online, records:
Name                     <5 <10 <15 <20 <30 <40 <50 <60 <70 <80 <90 <100 >100

His wife and he are 40, they have eight children, and there is a farm hand or 
relative living with them just younger than Daniel.                 

The 1850 U.S. Census records the family of (236) Daniel Coleman:

household number 653/657:
(236) Daniel Coleman,          49  b. c1801  M Farmer 300 NC
      Sarah (Nichols) Coleman, 51  b. c1799  F NC
(241) Tabitha Coleman,         25  b. c1825  F NC
(242) Alpha J. Coleman,        23  b. c1827  F NC
(243) Bethel V. Coleman,       22  b. c1828  M Laborer NC
(244) Elias N. Coleman,        20  b. c1830  M do. NC

(249) Daniel J. Coleman,        8  b. c1842  M NC

(241) Tabitha Coleman married Unknown Godwin.

(241) Tabitha Coleman and Mr. Godwin had these children:

(250) 1.  J. A. Godwin,
(251) 2.  Sarah D. Godwin,
(252) 3.  Alpha Jane Godwin Parker,
per the will of her sister, Alpha.[Williamson, 1984, p. 36]

(242) Alpha Jane Coleman married Unknown Faulk for according to her will, dated June 16, 1899, Probated Dec 29, 1904, she was Alpha Jane Faulk and listed the following family:

[Williamson, 1984, p. 36]

(243) Bethel V. Coleman was elsewhere recorded as Burwell Vick Coleman, b. 9/11/1827 in Columbus County, NC.  (243) Burwell Vick Coleman married Elizabeth Ann Rozier 1/07/1855 in Robeson County, NC.  He died 10/3/1892 in Columbus County, NC.
[Galloway, 2006]
[birth and death dates corroborated by Bible image courtesy of Thuren, Barbara McGill, 2008]

Elizabeth was born 08/27/1826 and died 04/06/1898.
[Bible image courtesy of Thuren, Barbara McGill, 2008]

Another source gives the marriage of Burwell Vick Coleman on 1/07/1855 in Robeson County stating he married Elizabeth Ann McKolsky.  Though the spelling is slightly off, this record is supported by the names of Elizabeth's children born prior to the date of this marriage as recorded in the 1860 U.S. Census with the last name of McKlosky, namely son James McKlosky and daughter S. A. McKlosky.  Elizabeth Rozier had first married a Mr. KcKlosky, as will be documented below, thus explaining why her marriage could be recorded by two sources giving her two different last names, maiden & first husband's.

(243) Burwell Vick Coleman and wife Elizabeth Ann McKlosky had these children:

(254) 1.  John S. Coleman,        b. c1855
(253) 2.  Daniel V. Coleman,      b. 1858
(255) 3.  W. H. Coleman,
(1154) 4.  Mary E. Coleman,     b. c1862
(1155) 5.  Mannie Coleman,      b. c1864
(1156) 6.  M. Nichols Coleman,  b. 1865

[U.S. Census Records, Columbus County, NC]

Elizabeth A. Rozier first married J.A. McKlosky/McClosky/McKolsky. They had two children:

    1.  J.R. (lived in Florida)
    2.  S.A. (lived in Vidalia, Montgomery Co., GA.)
    

[D.V. Coleman Bio on USGenWeb State Archives]

B.V. Coleman and Elizabeth Rozier McKlosky Coleman had four children:

 
    1.  John S. Coleman, born Nov. 16, 1856; 
    2.  Daniel V. Coleman; 
    3.  Mary E. Coleman, wife of W.H. Page, born 08/27/1861;
    4.  Nichols R. Coleman, born 03/01/1864, and died 07/14/1888. 
    

[D.V. Coleman Bio on USGenWeb State Archives]

The family was recorded in the 1860 U.S. Census as:

(279)  3.  Elizabeth Delight Coleman born 1823 or 24 per 1850 Census, Name provided by Rozier, 2002

(277) Louise Coleman married Averette Floyd. Averette was son of James Floyd and Edith Nichols. He was born April 29, 1822 in Horry Co. S.C., and died May 05, 1865 in Maryland during Civil War. It is said that Louise Coleman moved back to Columbus Co. after Averette's death.

(277) Louise Coleman and husband Averette Floyd had the following children:

(280)  1. Mary Elizabeth Floyd, born October 1848, Horry Co. S.C.;
          died April 27, 1929 in Columbus Co. N.C.

(282)  3. Ross Floyd,      born 1 Sep 1858, died 11 Aug 1934

He was born June 1849 in Columbus Co. N.C., and died January 20, 1924 in Columbus Co. N.C.  Alfred R. Noble was buried in 1924 at the Boardman Cemetery, N.C Columbus Co.  Alfred was in Company E., 36th Regiment, Columbus Co. N.C from 1863 to 1865.  Alfred worked in a sawmill.

In a query to the Horry County, SC page of the USGenWeb project, Biba writes that Mary was born in 1850, rather than 1848, and that she was from Floyds Township in Horry County, SC.  Thus, Averette Floyd and Louise Coleman apparently raised their family in Floyds Township, Horry County, SC. [Biba, 1999]

(282) Ross Floyd is also known as Christopher Columbus Ross Floyd. The same source gives his mother's name as Aura Louisa Coleman. He married Ida Jane Coleman. Ida Jane Coleman was born 9 May 1860 and died 6 Jan 1939. They had:

(315) Warren Jackson Coleman left a will in Columbus County, NC dated Feb 19, 1891, probated Mar 7, 1892, wherein he gives the name of his wife as M. E. Coleman, two heirs, V. E. Coleman and T. B. Coleman, and a son, V. E. Coleman.  He gives son V. E. Coleman a tract of land northeast of Bird Cage Road. Traveling East from Fair Bluff, one comes to Cerro Gordo first, then to Bird Cage; so I surmise this tract was somewhere East of Fair Bluff.  He also leaves a tract of land on the North side of the W C & A Railroad.
Executor: T. E. Bartin (Bardin?)
Witnesses: J. B. Harrelson and C. S. Benton
From Will Book A of Columbus County, NC [Williamson, p. 28]:

(190) Henry Coleman married Mary L. Unknown. Again, from Will Book A of Columbus County, NC [Williamson] we have the following on (190) Henry Coleman:

Henry Coleman, Sr., son of Moses II, who was son of Moses I, who was son of Robert II.
   Henry lived in Fair Bluff, NC and left a will dated 20 Oct 1905,
   a codicil dated 19 Nov 1910, deceased on or about 3 Nov 1911, and the
   will probated 8 Nov 1911.  His wife, Mary L. Coleman dissents the will
   claiming her legal rights to the land while she is alive.  He lists no
   relationship but names the following as recipients of his estate:
(346) 1.  Henry Coleman, Jr., a nephew
(347) 2.  Henry Gordon Floyd, son of Dr. A. G. Floyd
(348) 3.  Tifney Barnes, who married Dempsey Barnes

(351) 6.  Susan C. Ayers, who married J. A. Ayers
Executor:  Henry Coleman, Jr. and Dr. A. G. Floyd

Codicil gives money for an iron fence around the cemetery of Henry
Coleman, Jr.  [Williamson, p. 46]

(228) Asa Coleman and Anna Jane Enzor Coleman had:

(292) 1.  Dempsey Coleman, b. 1823
(293) 2.  Henry Coleman, b. 1827-1830,
             gave the lot where Fair Bluff Baptist Church
             stood in 1971. (may still be there)
(294) 3.  Carolina Matilda Coleman
(295) 4.  Sallie Malinda Coleman

There is a cemetery record for (293) Henry Coleman who is the son of (228) Asa Coleman.  From the cemetery records of the Coleman Cemetery in Cherry Grove, NC we know he and his wife were buried next to his brother Dempsey and Dempsey's wife and their parents, Asa and Annie Coleman.

(293) Henry Coleman,        b. c1827,  d. 11/3/1911, Aged 84 Years,
       married Cornie S. Unknown, 12/11/1874-12/30/1900

(191) Lucretia Coleman and husband William Hemphill had these children:

(1128) 1.  Ulyses Hemphill           b. 11/15/1803 d. 1826
(1129) 2.  Andrew Coleman Hemphill   b. 12/13/1805 d. 1837

(1136) 9.  Ambrose Barber Hemphill   b. 1824       d. 1879
[Tom, Zoe Hemphill, 1994]

Zoe Tom also records

William A. Coleman born 9-29-1779 in Mecklenburg, N.C. Died Jan. 9, 1837, in Bastrop, Texas.
He married Lucretia H. Coleman, who was born in 1783 and died 1840.

Tammy Owen records

The family ended up in Bastrop County, TX and were some of the first settlers in the area intermarrying with other first settlers. The area they lived at is called Hemphill Bend off of County Road 969 about 5 miles north of Hwy 71. A lot of the Hemphills are buried at Fairview Cemetery in Bastrop or in the Hemphill Cemetery on the old Hemphill place. There are also some at the Bateman Cemetery.
[Owen, Tammy, Oct 1, 1998]

Powell, 1971, records (192) Charity Coleman was born in 1797.  She married Elijah Worley, who was born 06/23/1788, to Nicholas Worley and Patience Strong (see below).   Elijah and (192) Charity Coleman Worley lived on the road from Fair Bluff to Cherry Grove, then called the Fair Bluff and Pireway Road.  Elijah owned much land. 

(192) Charity Coleman and husband Elijah Worley had:

(352) 1.  Ervin Worley
(353) 2.  Jackson Worley
(354) 3.  Coleman Worley
(355) 4.  Clinton Worley
(356) 5.  Return Strong Worley
(357) 6.  Mariah Worley
(358) 7.  Nancy Worley
(359) 8.  Dellah Worley
(360) 9.  Green Worley
(361) 10. Orpha Worley
(362) 11. Colin Worley
(363) 12. Alford Martine (John) Worley
(364) 13. Mary Ann Worley
[Powell, 1971]

The family that (192) Charity Coleman (above) married into was that of Nicholas Worley and his wife Patience Strong.  Thanks to Betty Morgan for pointing out her last name and father and that Patience may have been the widow of McKennie at the time she wed Nicholas Worley.

That Patience was the daughter of Return Strong is hardly in doubt as you see his name sake among Elijah and Charity's children listed above.

From another source archived as a post to the NCBLADEN-L, the family of Elijah Worley was recorded Wed, 15 Mar 2000, with a subject of "Return Strong":

Patience Strong
Nicholas Worley, Jr was born about 1755 in Duplin County, NC and
died after 1832 in Columbus Co., NC.  He wed Patience Strong and they had:
1.  Elias Worley    b:      c1786 in Columbus Co., NC

Nicholas and Patience settled between Fair Bluff and Cherry Grove (SE of Fair Bluff) before 1800.  Their ancestors lived in northeastern North Carolina.

(354) Coleman Worley married Emaline Enzor.  She is buried in the Hammond Cemetery near the state line in Horry County, SC.  Her grave gives the following dates: born 23 Jan 1836; died 28 Mar 1905. [Britt]

(193) Mary Polly Coleman married Joab Meares.  [Blackwell, Michael 2009], [Meares, Billy 2000], [Jones, Hamilton C 1858] She lived 1784 to 1863 per Cook, 2004. There is a court record online (Jones, Hamilton C 1858) documenting the fact that the wife of Joab Coleman had a brother, Philip Coleman.

(193) Mary Polly Coleman and husband Joab Meares had these children:

(1388) 1. Rhoda Meares,         b. 01/11/1806; d. 01/01/1872, Fair Bluff, Columbus County, NC,
(1389) 2. Alfred Meares,        b. 12/29/1808, Bladen County, NC; d. 12/12/1872,
(1390) 3. Daniel Wright Meares, b. 12/06/1809, NC; d. 1894; twin,  
(1391) 4. James Meares,         b. 12/06/1809, NC; twin,
(1392) 5. Elizabeth Meares,     b. 1811 or 13; m. Robert Chesnut,
(1393) 6. Mary Meares,          b. 02/03/1816; d. 01/23/1860. 

This family is recorded in great detail online in a Family Tree Maker Descendants Report for Thomas Meares, b. 1602/03 in Sidlesham, Sussex County, England, who emigrated in 1620 from Burras Ireland to Upper Norfolk County, VA, and died in 1674 in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The dates of birth and death above were taken from this source, except for Elizabeth, where a second source indicated 1813.

From the 1820 Columbus Co, NC Census we have these records:

From the 1820 Columbus Co, NC Census we have these records, [Index number added to show where these heads of households fit in the family documented in this book]:

Index  Pg Head of House       <10 <16 <18 <26 <45 >45  <10 <18 <26 <45 >45
       51 Andrew Coleman        1,  0,  0,  0,  1,  0,   1,  0,  0,  1,  0
          Andrew is between 26 and 45, born between 1775 and 1794.
 (185) 52 Theophilus Coleman    1,  0,  0,  1,  0,  1,   1,  1,  4,  1,  1
          Theophilus was born 1761 and was age 59 years or so in 1820, so he
          is the one over 45 and has a large number, 11 people total, in his household.
 (184) 52 John Coleman          0,  0,  0,  1,  0,  1,   0,  0,  0,  0,  1
          John was born about 1760, was about 60 years old, and has only
          3 people in his house hold, maybe a wife and a son between 18 and 26 years of age.
 (190) 53 Henry Coleman         0,  0,  0,  0,  1,  0,   0,  0,  1,  0,  0
          I imagine Henry was born about 1780 and was about 40, thus he's listed less than 45
          and is in a house with only one female, probably his wife, of the same age bracket.
 (189) 53 Dempsey Coleman       0,  0,  0,  1,  1,  0,   3,  2,  0,  1,  0
          born about 1778, Dempsey would have been about 42 in 1820, so listed less than 45.
          With two males and 6 females in the house, he had one of the larger households in 1820.

      If true, this is Sarah Green Stephens Coleman.
      Sarah's father's name was William.  It is possible she
      named a son after her father, which would explain the
      family tie-in for her next door neighbors below. - WDC]

Another clue to the identity of the above family is a marriage record found among the marriages records of Robeson County, NC. Recall that Robeson County lies adjacent to Columbus County, not far from Fair Bluff, just to the Northeast of Fair Bluff.  There is found the marriage of William H. Coleman to Sarah Rozier on 07/14/1842.  This is a perfect fit for the birth years of the children in the above family.

There are two other Coleman marriages listed in Robeson County, NC.

Coleman, Burwell V. and Elizabeth McKolskey (sic) on 01/07/1855.
Coleman, Nicholas and Mary Lamb on 02/24/1822.

LOOSE ENDS

Colemans in the area of Robeson County, NC, Columbus County, NC, and Horry District, SC.

From personal correspondence, I have been given this information about a (372) Theophilus Coleman, who I believe is connected to our Nansemond Colemans:

(372) Theophilus Coleman, born 1779-81, in Nash Co. NC
                         died 1814, in Surry, NC.
         married to Abigail Robertson,  born 5 July 1783, in Sangamon Co. Kentucky
                         died 1865

      Abigail's parents were John and Patsy Robertson. (no dates)
      Abigail married Robert Hamilton after her marriage to Theophilus.

(372) Theophilus Coleman and Abigail Coleman had these children:

(373) 1.  Sarah Coleman              married Joshua Crowe
(374) 2.  Elizabeth Coleman          married John Purvines or Purviance
(375) 3.  John Roundtree Coleman
(376) 4.  Jane Coleman               
[Tubbs]

(376) Jane Coleman married first George Hamilton.   She married second Alexander Purviance.
[Tubbs]

This is fascinating when considered alongside the information about Charles Coleman (1744-1824) and his wife Mary Roundtree.  They had several children starting just after the birth of Theophilus Coleman above.  They had a daughter named Sarah and a son John.  If, in addition to their known children, they first had a son Theophilus, it would explain the use of the name Roundtree in John Roundtree Coleman's name. 

The 1860 U.S. Census of Columbus County, North Carolina records these Coleman households that I have not yet tied in to our lines:

Though the exact connection of (1144) Travis Coleman remains to be found, Galloway, 2006, suggested Travis could be the son of (282) Amos Coleman and wife Winnifred.

(1147) Bryant Coleman married Lucinda Williamson.
[Galloway, 2006]

(311) Lot Caswell Coleman, son of Harris Coleman and Rebecca Williamson, married another Lucinda Williamson 01/18/1859 in Columbus County, NC. His brother (315) Warren Jackson Coleman married Mary Ellenia Bardin 01/20/1870 in Columbus County, NC.

Incidentally, though the connection is unknown, Powel, 1971 records a Coleman Nicholas from Edgecombe County settled on Porter Swamp before 1800.  Therefore, there was a connection between the two families further back. 

Children of Coleman Nicholas were:

 1.  Elias Nicholas, b. 1770, d. 1852, m. Sarah Lewis of South Carolina
     Elias had a daughter who married into the Coleman family and moved to

 2.  Ephrian Nicholas, m. Rebecca Williamson.  They moved to Marion
         County, Mississippi in 1834.
 3.  Edith Nicholas    m. Simon Godwin.
 4.  Averlite Nicholas.  His family settled in South Carolina founding the
          town of Nicholas, in Marion County, SC.

Quite a bit has been recorded on the Nichols/Nickols/Nicholes/Nicholas family on the Rootsweb lists. See information on the Nichols familes of the area in my Nichols file.

Simon Godwin, who married 3. Edith Nichols above, was born 18 Mar 1767 in Johnston County, NC and died 30 Jul 1839 in Horry District, SC [Obit in "The Southern Christian Advocate"]  Coleman Nichols married Martha Pierce Godwin.  Simon and Edith Godwin had five daughters.
