I'm looking for researchers of this family. I have proof that the child, Robert C. McGrath born 1870, of Agustus McGrath and Emily Byerly is the illegitimate son of Robinson (Robert) C. Coleman and Emily Byerly of Nodaway Co. Mo.
Emily was the daughter of a servant (Caroline Byerly) that was working in Robinson Coleman's home. He was a widow because his wife had just died.
Emily claimed that Robinson promised to marry her then refused. She ended up suing him for a lot of money.
Please contact me with information on this family. I want to include Robert C. McGrath in my family research.
I have a picture of Robinson Coleman and would like to get a picture of Robert C. McGrath.
PS.....There is a DR. Byerly buried in the Coleman cemetery in Pickering, MO. It is probably Emily's father. Robinson Coleman's father was also a Dr.
