Rev. Isaiah Bangs Coleman May 7, 1809 - March 14, 1883 Married May 1, 1834


And


Anna Villette Dunham Coleman


March 21, 1813 - August 7, 1898


“Rev. Isaiah B. Coleman was born at Stephentown, in Rensselaer County, on March 7, 1809.(This date differs with the date in the Rensselaer County Cemetery Records) He was the fifth child and fourth son of Calvin Coleman, and a grandson of John Coleman, who was one of the pioneer settlers in the western part of the town.

Until he attained the age of eighteen or nineteen years, Mr. Coleman passed his life at home on the paternal farm, meantime enjoying the benefits of such education as the district schools of his locality afforded. With a mind eager for knowledge, industrious and ambitious, he soon fitted himself for teaching, and his nineteenth year found him in charge of a district school in Sand Lake, where he taught one term. He then passed to the charge of the school at West Sand Lake, where he taught four or five terms. From there he passed in turn to the school on Oak Hill (in the town of Sand Lake); the school at Snyder’s Corners, in Greenbush; the school sought of Oak Hill and to those at Alps (in the town of Nassau) and West Stephentown, making in all ten successive years of faithful and acceptable service as a public instructor.

In the year 1834, May 10th, Mr. Coleman was licensed by the Free-Will Baptist Church at Stephentown Centre, with which he was at that time connected, to preach the gospel, and on the 25th day of March following he was regularly ordained as an elder of the Free-Will Baptist Church. He commenced preaching for the church on Oak Hill, but his first regular pastoral charge was the Stephentown church.

Elder Coleman was one of the organizers of the Free-Will Baptist Church at West Stephentown, and became its pastor in 1844, a position which he has continued faithfully to fill ever since, with no stated salary, trusting alone to the liberality of his people, and without other compensation or reward than the free-will offering of the people and the consciousness that he was performing the master’s work cheerfully and conscientiously. He has been active in the organization of other churches in the county, is an honored and beloved member of the denomination, and has twice served as a delegate to the General Conference of the body.

In the year 1836, Mr. Coleman established a store at West Stephentown, which has been kept by himself or son till his son’s death, and since by his grandson. He has also filled the position of postmaster at that point for thirty years.

On May 1, 1834, Mr. Coleman was united in marriage to Anna V., daughter of Isaac Dunham, on of the early settlers of the town of Nassau. Two children were born of this union, -- Elbert I. Coleman, who located at West Stephentown, and died on October 23, 1878, leaving a family; and Isaac DeWitt Coleman, who was a member of the 125th New York State Volunteers in the late war (Civil War), and who was killed near Petersburg, Va., on June 5, 1864, while bravely battling for his country’s rights.

It will not be improper for the writer to add, that Elder Coleman is highly respected in the community in which he has passed his life, and bears a reputation for integrity and uprightness which all may envy.”

Lt. Isaac DeWitt Coleman October 8, 1837-June 16, 1864

Joined the Army in August 1862 at Troy, NY, Co. H, 125th NYS Volunteers. He was a sargent upon enlistment, at the age of 24. He surrendered and was parolled in September, 1862 at Harper's Ferry; He quickly rose in ranks, making 2nd LT. in September, 1863; 1st LT in May, 1864. He was killed in action on June 16, 1864 at Petersburg, VA. He was 26 years old.

From the Cherokee County (Iowa) Biographical History - 1889

S. G. JAMES was born in Monroe County, New York, January 20, 1819. His parents were Samuel B. and Anna (Bailey) James, natives of Rensselaer County, New York. He is the youngest of four children; his eldest brother is the widely-known Amaziah B. James, who represented the Ogdensburg District in Congress for two terms as successor to Hon. W. H. Wheeler, when that gentleman resigned to accept the nomination to the Vice Presidency. He had early became an able attorney, and was elected a justice of the Supreme Bench of New York about 1852. He filled that position faithfully and honorably for nearly a quarter of century. It was his son, Henry R. James, a publisher of Ogdensburg, who nominated Mr. Wheeler Vice President at Cincinnati in a forcible and telling speech. Edward C. James, a prominent attorney of New York City, is the only living son of Judge James. After two terms in Congress Judge James chose to retire from public life, and the remainder of his days were passed pleasantly at Ogdensburg in his elegant home, where he died July 6, 1885. His widow, who also comes form a remarkable family, still survives him. One sister, Mary L., was the wife of James G. Wilson, of Kalamazoo, MIchigan, where she died three years since. The remaining sister, Ann, wife of R. J. Marvin, resides in Garden City, Minnesota. The family is of Welsh origin, and settled at an early date in Rhode Island, where Amos James, S. G.'s grandfather was born. The subject of this notice, S. G. James, lost his mother when he was three years of age. He was taken by his grandfather, Amos James, to Rensselaer County, where he remained until he was fourteen years old. He then went to Ogdensburg where his brother, Amaziah, was publishing a paper called the Northern Light, an anti-Masonic organ. Entering this office he learned the printer's trade, and remained there seven years, the last four years being foreman. His brother sold out meantime, and the paper became successively the Ogndensburg Times and Advertiser and the Ogdensburg Sentinel. He then returned to Rensselaer County, New York, and in July 16, 1844, was united in marriage to Miss Emma C. Lewis, a native of that county. Mr. James engaged in farming and lived mainly in St. Lawrence County until 1854, when he emigrated to Wisconsin, settling in Fond du Lac County. He farmed for eleven years, and then was in the grain trade at Brandon, and about eight years in the lumber business at the same place. In the summer of 1876 he discovered that there was land beyond, and chose Iowa for his future home. He bought his fertile farm and began his improvements upon it. His place adjoins the town limits of Aurelia, and is situate upon a ridge of ground making it a most desirable tract of land. Mr. James and his excellent wife have reared a family of four children: Lewis M., the oldest, is an engineer, residing in New York City; Anna B., wife of Henry E. Durland; Fred S. and Charley E. Fred S. holds the responsible position of train dispatcher at Fort Dodge, on the Illinois Central Railroad. He is the youngest train dispatcher in the country, and his friends may well be proud of his rapid rise in his profession. He was but twenty years of age when called to fill this position. S. C. James cast his first vote for William Henry Harrison, and has missed but one Presidential election since that time, always supporting the Republican party. He has twice passed all of the chairs of the I.O.O.F. Lodge. Respected by all who know him, he stands for what he is; plain in speech, earnest in convictions of right and wrong, be it said to his praise that there should be more like him.

Mrs. Douglas died at Irvington, N.Y., Feb. 28, 1869. He was elected cashier of the newly organized Bank of Troy in 1811, and served the bank until 1827, when he went to New York city as cashier of the Chemical bank. In 1829 he returned to Troy and became cashier of the Merchants and Mechanics bank. He resigned in 1886 and was succeeded by his son, Charles Selden Douglas. He thereafter devoted his time to the care of his large private business interests and to the cultivation of his literary tastes. President Van Buren offered him the secretaryship of the treasury in his cabinet, which position Mr. Douglas declined.

James J. Brown was born at Stephentown, Rensselaer County, New York, January 12, 1832, and he was one of the venerable and honored pioneer citizens of Omaha at the time of his death, in February, 1901. The schools of the old Empire State afforded Mr. Brown his youthful education, and he early gained practical experience by assisting in his father's general mercantile establishment at Stephentown. At the age of eighteen years he was given the management of this store and business, which he efficiently conducted three years. He then felt the lure of the great West, with the result that in 1856 he came to Nebraska Territory and established his residence at Omaha. Here he soon opened a general store in a small building that stood at the southeast corner of Douglas and Fourteenth streets, and in 1866 he removed his store to the three-story building that he had erected for the purpose and that formed the west end of the Caldwell Block.
