Additions & corrections welcome, especially now that autosomal DNA results allow me to correct and refine my work. I am not related to and am not a chief compiler of every family in this database. Although the majority of the labor reflected here is my own, I sometimes borrowed from others, especially on associates of my families whom I searched long ago. Where I have mistakenly not credited another researcher, I would appreciate a contact so that I can improve this.

    Note that there is never evidence of more than one William Coleman in the NJ records of this place & time.

    Is this the same William?

    Freehold electors of Township of Nottingham, Burlington County. To House of Assembly.
    Situation between Great Britain and Colonies has reached alarming crisis; country may be involved in horrors of civil war; real interests of America best protected by loyalty to Great Britain; should meet some of expenses of government, for defense of Empire; disavow all violent proceedings against mother country; will prove selves loyal subjects of "His Gracious Majesty, George III."

    Hmmm, Loyalist leanings. Assuming that this is the same William Coleman who did serve in the Rev. from Burlington Co, he certainly changed his mind. Note that this will give an original signature of this William.

    Pay attention, likely NOT the same, but use this to help differentiate:

    I have posted this previously, but since it has been a while I will do it again. I'm still looking for any infomation about the father of my g-g-g-grandmother,William Coleman, who according to family legend may have been born
    in Newark, New Jersey. He evidently moved to Berks County, Pennsylvania, probably in the vicinity of Reading before the Revolutionary War broke out, as he served in the Berks County, PA, militia during the war. Also this is
    reportedly where Nancy, my g-g-g-grandmother was born. We've been unable to find any information about any of the family except John W., his daughter Phoebe, and Nancy. I'm hoping there is another Coleman descendant tracing the same line. Thank you in advance for any help you can give. I will be glad to exchange information and sources with you.
