This page has been paid for by George's relative Althea Bolden.

Married, sometime after the 1910 census, to Ethel E Wimberley daughter of Miranda and step-daughter of George E Washington.

Ethel was born 11 Nov 1893 Arkansas (possibly at Stuttgart). The 1900 census states that she was born Nov 1893. Althea states that she married a James Coleman and died in Detroit in 1983. There is an Ethel Coleman 11 Nov 1893 - Mar 1979 who is listed in the SSDI as having last resided in Detroit.

There are several James who could be her husband, listed in the SSDI and also it could be that he died before this index started. We won't know which is true until we see her obituary.

Althea states : "On December 20, 1932, Alma Coleman Henderson wrote a letter addressed to Grandmother and Grandfather (she is Ethel's dau) and she was writing from 422 Wilkins St in Detroit, MI. She writes that J. S., Estelle, and Joyce are always over to her house...those are the Coleman children, her sibs, kids of Ethel and James Coleman. She also says she thinks this is the first letter she wrote home since she got married."
