Rev. Elisha Coleman

Died at the residence of his son, in Emanuel County, Ga., on the 30th October, 1860, Rev. Elisha Coleman in the 72nd year of his age.

He was born in Burke County and united himself to the Baptist Church at Bark Camp in Dec. 1832, remained a consistent member (unreadable text), moved to Emanuel County, and joined Old Canoochee Church, and was set apart to the ministry in June 1841, and some few years afterwards constituted and built Haw Hamoc (Hawhammock) Church, and remained as the watch-care of the same until his death. The church has lost her brightest light, and the county one of its best citizens, ever ready to lend the helping hand to the needy and distressed. His theme was to hear and expound the Scriptures.

Be it therefore resolved by the church in conference, that his obituary be spread over the minutes of the conference, and sent to the Christian Index with the request to publish the same, and family be presentd with a copy of the same.
