Isaac Coleman was born in the year 1832, and with his parents came to Ohio in 1840, and settled in Orange Township, three miles north of the town of Orange. April 10, 1856, he was married, and farmed the old homestead for his father for fourteen years. Then he moved to Montgomery Township, and after a short residence there, went to Iowa. After remaining there a brief time, he came back to Richland County, and finally, to the old home, which he purchased of his father. This he sold, and removed to Clear-creek Township, and bought the old Shaw farm. He is the father of five children: Arabella, Jennie, Eva, Charles, and Emma. At the age of two, Eva was killed by a log falling upon her. The loss was a severe one to the fond parents. The other children are all living. Mr. Coleman is a man of enterprise and industry.
