States: Arkansas: Washington
My grandparents lived in Brintwood, AR,Washington County - around the 1940 or so, My mother went to school there- her name was Ruth Imogene Coleman and her sister was Iris Coleman her father was Clay Watkins Coleman was born in 1893 in Steel, MO(Pemiscot County)and died in 1956 in a TB hospital in AR - WHY CAN'T I FIND ANYONE WHO HAS RUN ACROSS OF THEM? The mother and sister of Clay died when he was 10 or 12 and the father had to go to a "insane asylum" and the boys went to live with "Aunt Rilla". Later in life, I am told she worked at a shoe store in Fayettville owned or named Colemans. Clay came to Memphis, TN where he met and married Floy Norman (she was a telephone operator in Memphis) My mother was born in Parkin, AR in 1921. I am looking for information on Clay Watkins Coleman and Floy Norman Coleman.I don't know their parents names. Clay's brothers name was John Britton Coleman. Please - any information would be helpful.
