COLEMAN b: ABT. 1822 in Baldwin, GA Nancy Caroline COLEMAN b: ABT. 1827 in Putnam, GA John T. COLEMAN b: ABT. 1828 in Putnam, GA 1830 census finds Willis's family in Putnam co. Capt Jn. Bekafhesis dist (could not make out spelling of name, this is a guess) Males in family 1 (50-60) 1 in to 5; 1 in (5-10). girls 1 in (40-50) , 1 in to 5, 1 in (5-10), 1in (10-15). Wiley and William=boys, three girls+ Charlotte, Matilda and Mazoury) These are the children's names listed in his will. They match thenumber of children in the above census. His will was in court 1832. Baldwin Co census 1820 for Willis Coleman: male 1 under 10, 1 age 26to 45, female: 3 females under 10, one female over forty five. Mildred's age is correct in 1830 but wrong in 1920. I think this is an error. In 1920 he had one son (under 10), and three daughters (under10). compare to 1830 census: He added two young sons, but one son who would be teenager is missing. Added two young daughters, has one in 10-15who could be from first census. Leaves two daughters who would be in teens unaccounted for. For a total of 8 children. Wiley, Missouri, Charlotte, & Matilda must all be children on first census. In 1820 Wiley is not in the home, William Powell b. 1821 is one added son, John b. 1821 must be other. This accounts for all males. Add Nancy b. c1827, and Frances b c.1822 . These two fit the 1830 ages for two girls, Two girls who are now teens are out of the home. Leaves one at home in the 10-15 bracket. All this fits. But why are two youngest daughters and one son not mentioned in will? He even names, my five children. In 1840 we see these three children plus William Powell, still with Milly, now in Muscogee Co. Ga. (William marries in Muscogeein 1842). Will of Willis Coleman " In the name of God Amen.
