Francis Marion Coulter was the eldest of 11 children of Samuel Coulter & Maria Bash. He married on September 25, 1867 in the Poweshiek County courthouse at Montezuma, Iowa, to Nancy Ellen Wood (1843-1919), daughter of Holofernes Wood & Inez Perkins. They had 8 children: Eva Maria, Alpha Mabel "Allie", Irving William (died in infancy), Ivey (died in infancy), Hattie Olive Patience Emma "Ollie", Albert Luther "Bert", Belle Inez Grace "Grace", and James Orville Coulter.

Francis Marion Coulter was Nancy Ellen's second husband. She married first on October 18, 1858, in Jay County, Indiana, to Phineas Irey (1834-1905). Phineas & Nancy had one daughter, Margaret "Maggie", born 1859 in Indiana. After her mother's remarriage, Maggie took her stepfather's surname. Phineas Irey's listing on FAG is #20025521.

Francis Marion Coulter died in his sleep while he was visiting his brother Aaron in Marshalltown, Iowa. His body---escorted by Aaron---was taken by train back to Conway Springs, Kansas, for burial beside his beloved wife. Also buried in the Coulter lot at Conway Springs is their daughter Alpha Mabel "Allie" Coulter who died unmarried at age 27 in 1899, plus other family members.

In the oval photograph, F.M. Coulter, right, is shown with his younger brother Aaron (1860-1945).
