Daniel Coleman1

M, ID# 3290, (1816-1865)
     Daniel Coleman was born on 13 June 1816 in Troy, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1 He was the son of William Coleman and Catherine Jones.1 He married Mary Abel, daughter of David Abel and Mary Dineen.1 He died on 22 February 1865 in Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario, at age 48.1 He was buried in Troy Cemetery, Beverly Twp, Wentworth County, Ontario.1

Dan Coleman went to an early grave. In later years the family was rather spread out. One gets the sense, looking over the records and thinking back over family stories, that the family had a rough time after Dan's death. At the time of the 1881 census Phoebe was with her sister Harriet; Lucinda was still unmarried and with Wesley on the home farm.

The dates used for Dan and Mary's births and deaths are from Harley Misener's 1969 transcription of Troy Cemetery, which are believed to be close or accurate, though it is suspected that in the case of Dan's stone, Harley may be working from other sources for, from this researcher's recollection, the stone has been in near unreadable condition from at least the early 1960s.

GS1422 Vol. A, transaction 139, is for the transfer of property from William and Catherine Coleman to Daniel Coleman. It is for 50 acres, the N.E. part of the south half of C4-L5 which William purchased a few years earlier.1
