Photo Friday - John F. Coleman

John Franklin Coleman
9 July 1883 - 2 August 1949

My grandfather’s cousin John Franklin Coleman was born 9 July 1883 in Shenandoah, Page County, Virginia. He was son of my great-grandmother’s sister Emma Jollett and her husband Andrew Jackson “Jack” Coleman.

Johnny, as he was called, worked his entire adult life as an engineer with the railroad. In census records, he is always enumerated as “single,” but on Find A Grave, a daughter is listed.
