George Coleman, aged ca. 21.B. ca.1794, eldest son of John Brown Coleman and Elizabeth (Coffin) Coleman. His parents came to Dartmouth with the Nantucket Whalers, his grandfather being Seth Coleman, one of the leaders of that group. As George's mother and Louisa's mother are sisters, George is Louisa's cousin. The John Brown Colemans live in Dartmouth, at the southwest corner of King and Ochterloney Streets (See Plan of Dartmouth ). Seth Coleman's house is just down the street, at the northeast corner of Ochterloney and Water (which street will later be called Commercial, and later still, Alderney Drive).
Like his father and grandfather, George Coleman is a boat wright.
