This was my grandma. I never knew her as she died long before I was born. Her lineage reads like a veritable "Who's Who" of early settlers in America. She is a direct descendant of two Revolutionary War soldiers and countless educators, doctors, and politicians.

She married twice. Once to my grandfather Samuel George Coleman, and then to Edward Seaman. Luckily, I have her only child as a mom so she can relate the great stories of the 30s, 40s, and 50s. There is a reason she was part of "The Greatest Generation".

She died way too young and is missed by many. I hope I can meet her someday - in the afterworld ...
