Robert G. Coleman
History of St. Louis:

Rev. Robert G. Coleman came from Spottsylvania
County, Va., in 1837, the year of the flood in the
Missouri bottom. The " great flood" occurred in
1844, and forms an important epoch in the history
of Bonhomme bottom, its marks being yet dis-
tinctly visible and a long lake formed where culti-
vated fields existed. The water was up to the wagon-
bed bottom in crossing over from the Lewis Ferry.
In 1837, Mr. Coleman bought a part of the McCourt-
enay tract, and later, portions of the Bell, Caughlin,
Henry, and Mackay tracts. This tract bears date
from Zeuon Trudeau, 1798. Alexander McCourtenay
deeded survey 152 to his brother John, and John
subsequently to his son Martin. The Rev. II. G.
Coleman had four sons, William H., Spencer G. (in
Franklin County), John M. (died in 1849), and
Robert G. He died about 1842.

Robert Goodwin Coleman, ex-State senator, the
youngest son of the Rev. R. G. Coleman, married
his cousin, Eliza, daughter of Henry Tyler. The
oldest son, John, married Mary, daughter of John
Orr, and the oldest daughter married her cousin, Dr.
Robert G. Coleman. He built his first house in 1844,
and his present residence in 1869. He was elected
State senator in 1857, and again in 1877. He was
one of the first Good Templars in the county, in the
lodge organized at Antioch, in 1856, of which he was
Grand Templar.
