Biography

Charles Henry Coleman, born Oct 17 1884, was the fifth-born child to Thomas Coleman and Anastasia Hickey, Irish immigrants of Sioux City, Iowa. [1] [2] He was baptized 14 Dec 1884 at Epiphany Cathedral; the godparents were William and Mary Follis. [3] [4]

Charles had two brothers and three sisters, all born in Sioux City: [5] [2] [6]

  • Thomas William Coleman, born 1873;
  • Mary Jane Coleman, born 1876;
  • Stephen John Coleman, born 1878;
  • Catherine Elizabeth Coleman, born 1880;
  • Helen F Coleman, born 1887.

Charles had a first cousin with the same name, Chas H Coleman. Cousin Charles was born in 1875, also in Sioux City.

Charles was tall, of medium build, with blue eyes and brown hair. Draft registration card indicates he had a scar over the left eye. He was employed at Sioux City Northwest Bell Telephone Company as clerk, lineman, electrician, inspector, troubleman... [7] [8] [9] [10]

Charles, his brother Stephen and his sister Helen all stayed at the family home on Bluff Street, never marrying. [11] In 1920 when their mother Anastasia, a widow since 1901, passed away , she left them the house. In 1927 his older brother Stephen died after a surgical accident. He then became "head" of the house. The 1940 census shows Charles and his sister Helen (better known as Nelly) still at home on Bluff Street. [12] [13] [14]

Charles retired in 1949 after 43 years of work with Bell Telephone Company. [15]

In the U.S. Social Security Applications and Claims Index, the claim date 22 September 1949 is listed for Charles Henry Coleman. A Note is made 27 December 1977. What does this indicate? Can a death date be inferred? [16]
