I would love to talk to you. Write me back at my email address of firstname.lastname@example.org
I have a John Coleman, born Mississippi who is the son of James William Coleman, born 1813 (probably in Georgia) who married Elizabeth Sheppard. This couple had 7 children-
1. William S. Coleman born Jan 6, 1837 in Virginia who married Nancy Eliza Bush born 1846. Both died in Rapides.
I am descendent of this line. They are buried in Hemphill Star Cemetery at Lake Cotile.
2.Sarah Coleman born Mississippi.
3.John Coleman born Mississippi. COULD THIS BE YOUR JOHN
4, Nathaniel Austin Coleman born Florida
5.Elizabeth Coleman born Mississippi
6.Mitchell Coleman (THIS HAS TO BE A CONNECTION- YOUR MITCHELL BUSH COULD BE NAMED AFTER THIS MITCHELL COLEMAN, BROTHER -IN-LAW OF THE NANCY BUSH)
If your Coleman and Bush family are buried at Hemphill Star Cemetery, there is a definite connection.
