For years it was considered only "tradition" among researchers that Samuel married Elizabeth Wyatt the daughter of Francis Wyatt. Some vociferously denied this "theory." However, a letter held in a British archives now proves the connection.
Samuel married Frances Wyatt about 1733. "A letter from Samuel Coleman dated September 11, 1738 where he mentions he married the daughter of Francis Wiatt and He mentions he had two sons and two daughters the eldest... named Wiatt Coleman." - ([WYATT-L] The Wiatt Family of Virginia compiled by Alexander Loyd Wiatt Part IX; 11 Mar 2003 22:51:06 EST, SweetKinfolk@aol.com, CSJ.) Alexander Lloyd Wiatt is the author of the Wiatt genealogy entitled, The Wiatt Family of Virginia.
Samuel ran a trading post and tavern.
His will was proved in Caroline Co., on June 10, 1748.
There is a Samuel Coleman who signed his will on April 1, 1748 in Goochland Co., Virginia. But he appears to be another individual.
