Hello Kamah: I am also searching for a former president of Liberia. His name was James Cheesman, and he was President of Liberia during the 1892-1893 Columbian Eposition World Fair held in Chicago, Illinois. There was a Liberian Pavillion at the world fair in 1893 and picture cards of the Liberian First Lady was distributed. Somehow his date of birth and death appears elusive. I've made a note to watch for a former President named Coleman for you, and will post any findings here, and will let you know. If you happen on a former Liberian Head of State with the surname of Cheesman / Cheeseman, please let me know. Thanks, Dave

Dear Kamah: Thank you for your suggestion. I'm sorry I had not gotten back to you sooner to thank you for your suggestion. I eventually found Joseph James Cheesman, the 11th President of Liberia. He born in 1843, Edina, Liberia, the probable son of James Cheesman, and grandson of Abraham Cheesman (1803- ) and Margaret Cheesman who immigrated to Liberia from Virginia. He died 12 NOV 1896, Monrovia, Liberia and was succeeded by Vice-President William David Coleman (1842-1908).
