  • Notes 
    • [CynthiaColeman.ged]

      Elisha was a man of many talents - man of the cloth, farmer, carpenter, and craftsman. His first wife died in 1828 after bearing ten children. At any time, being left with ten children is a tremendous burden - in those early frontier days it was a terrible crisis. Farming left no time for baby-sitting, even if older children are around to help. In 1829, me married Mary Lucretia, who had at least three children by her first marriage.

      Their relationship appears to have been a stormy one. Elisha repeatedly puts notices in newspapers that he will no longer honor any debts incurred by her as she has left his bed and board, but then they get back together, and in at least one case, have another child. Mary Lucretia appears to have been quite outspoken, not quite the norm of the time.

      From FindAGrave:

      Burke County, Georgia Militia.

      Rev. Elisha Coleman, son of Jonathan Coleman and Milly Pittman, was born on 2 Apr 1789 in Burke County, Georgia. He died on 30 Oct 1860 in Emanuel County, Georgia

      From The Christian Index Feb. 13, 1861.
      Rev. Elisha Coleman

      Died at the residence of his son, in Emanuel County, Ga., on the 30th October, 1860, Rev. Elisha Coleman in the 72nd year of his age.

      He was born in Burke County and united himself to the Baptist Church at Bark Camp in Dec. 1832, remained a consistent member (unreadable text), moved to Emanuel County, and joined Old Canoochee Church, and was set apart to the ministry in June 1841, and some few years afterwards constituted and built Haw Hamoc (Hawhammock) Church, and remained as the watch-care of the same until his death. The church has lost her brightest light, and the county one of its best citizens, ever ready to lend the helping hand to the needy and distressed. His theme was to hear and expound the Scriptures.

      Be it therefore resolved by the church in conference, that his obituary be spread over the minutes of the conference, and sent to the Christian Index with the request to publish the same, and family be presentd with a copy of the same.
