I'm trying to make a connection between

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Coleman-10840  Robert Edward Coleman (b. abt. 1748 in Virginia, d. Jan 1834 in Mercer County, Kentucky), in my wife's line, and...

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Coleman-1020 Capt. Robert Coleman (b. 1656 in Gloucester Virginia, d. 1713 Essex, Virginia. This one's son, Edward, through whom I thought I might make the connection is unsourced (and I cannot find any, either).

Just kinda stuck. Any help out there? Thanks!

A good start! Thanks, Rodney. I’m going to contact the creator of that tree and see if anything pops up.

I'm fairly certain that my Colemans also descend from Robert Coleman, although I have yet to find a definite connection; my third great-grandfather, Washington Coleman, of Meade County, Kentucky, said to be son of a Daniel Coleman (born c. 1799, Virginia) whose father was supposedly a Josiah Coleman, born around 1775 in Virginia. My mother has DNA matches on Ancestry to several descendants of Robert Coleman and Ann Spilsby, which seems to support the likelihood that Josiah Coleman was a descendant of Robert Coleman of Mobjack Bay.

CH, I don’t have the DNA connection... yet. I’m only one generation from making that connection for my wife. It’ll come.
