Hi,

I'm going round and round in circles with all the william Colemans.

Can you help?

I'm descended from Alexander Ebeneezer Coleman 1853-1880 who married Anna Belle Shoffner 1852-1943.

I have his paternal pedigree:

Alexander Ebeneezer Coleman = son of Wilford Ebeneezer Coleman 1820-1879 + Elizabeth F Alden 1821-1879. Wilford Ebeneezer Coleman m2 Emily Jane Shoffner Wardlaw.

Wilford Ebeneezer Coleman = son of William Coleman IV b 1690-1710 Amelia County d 1768 Amelia + Nancy? or Frances Archer?

William Coleman IV = son of William Coleman III b 1680 Prince George Co d 1745 Rawleigh, Amelia Co + Faith Godfrey.

William Coleman III = son of William Coleman II b 1650 Gloucester Co d 1705 Southold, NY + Sarah Mary Maples.

William Coleman II = son of William Coleman I b 1619 Langley, Wiltshire, England d 1680 Gloucester Co, MA + Bridget Rowe Jeggles.

William Coleman I = son of William Coleman Sr b 1605 England d 1683 Newport, RI.

I woul appreciate it if you would let me know if you have any corrections or additions to this.

Yours,

Susie
