Coleman Family Photo

See Key to Photo Below Picture


By the Carriage--David Jackson Coleman's oldest son, Alva b. 1888 in Louisianna
Elisha Lawrence Coleman, David's brother who was born August 1872 in Randolph Co. GA. 
He married Elizabeth Harris Stubbs December 17, 1899 in Sadler, Grayson Co. TX. 
Elizabeth was a school teacher.  The couple lived in Sadler for a while then moved to Greer Co. OK

By the Covered Wagon
David Jackson Coleman b. May 1863 in Randolph Co. GA and his wife Florence Edith Bigby Coleman 
b. February 1869 in Arkansas
I think that David is holding Oliver Elisha who was born in Howe, Grayson Co. TX in April 1897 
and the child that is twirling is Willie b. 1893 in Texas.  Other people in photo are not known.

I guess that the picture was taken in late fall of 1898 or 1899.  I am assuming that it is a departure picture as
David Jackson and his family were leaving Grayson County for Webster Parish LA. 
The family were in Louisianna by December 1899 as their next child was born there on that date. 
I know that David and his family were living in Webster Parish in 1930 but do not know where they 
are buried nor have contact with any decendents.

David Jackson and Elisha Lawrence Coleman were the sons of Elisha and Virginia Carolina Smith Coleman
and grandsons of Isaac Coleman of Randolph Co. GA.

If this house or the other people in the photo are recognized by anyone -please let me know.
