Mary, If you go to familysearch.org and look at the 1900 census for Alfred and Jonathan Coleman it says that their father was born in Ohio and their mother was born in Pennsylvania. I would think that Madaline is their mother. I looked at the 1910 census for a Jonathan in Colorado that was born in Iowa around 1881 and found Jonathan Grossnickle in Greeley, Weld County, with his wife Nellie and daughter Clara.
