Info from family and personal knowledge of Michael Cole.

William John Tuma Coleman

RESEARCHER: Information sent to T.Mason from Michael Steven Cole M.D. [MColeMD@theColeFamily.com].

His birthdate was incorrectly reported as 1885 on his death certificate.

Records of Fremont College (now Midlands Lutheran College) show that Will "TUME" was a student in the 1890's.

On 24 September 1895 "John TUMA, Jr., returned to school in Fremont," Nebraska, according to the 27 September issue of The Dodge [NE] Criterion.

The Dodge [NE] Criterion reported on 23 April 1897, "Will TUMA went to Fremont Wednesday [21 April] to attend the Normal School there. His sister will also attend after the first of next month."

Enrolled in the Teacher's Institute held at Ord, Nebraska, in June 1900. (Teacher's Institutes were held in various communities in Nebraska, usually in early summer, for the purpose of training individuals who wished to teach in small rural schools.)

York Co., NE, Marriage Book E, p. 686 (included his parents' names)

Frequently mentioned in The Ord [Nebraska] Weekly Journal newspaper in 1900.

On 20 Sep 1900 The Ord [NE] Journal reported that he and wife "left [17 September] Monday morning for Chelan, Washington, at which place he has secured a school for the winter. Mr. TUMA has a brother-in-law residing there and
if he likes the country will probably remain a while." The Ord [NE] Journal of 23 August 1900 reported that his teaching job in Washington state would pay $45 per month.

City directory of May 1903, which listed his occupation as carpenter
City directory of 1904-1905, which listed his occupation as contractor and builder
City directory of 1906-1907, which listed his occupation as contractor

The last contact he had with his mother in Nebraska was a letter from Colorado, signed "W. J. TUMA," dated 2 November 1904, at which time he wrote that she should expect another letter, along with a photo of her granddaughter Elsie, in about two weeks.

Colorado Springs [CO] City Directory of 1907-1908 reported that Wm. J. TUMA had moved to Denver.

Between 1915 and 1920 he bought and sold land several times in Bonneville Co., Idaho.

In 1918 "William John COLEMAN," born "18 Sep 1873," registered for the World War I civilian draft in Bonneville Co., Idaho.

1922 and 1923 city directories listed William's occupation as builder.
City directory of 1924, which listed his occupation as contractor
City directory of 1926, which listed his occupation as carpenter
City directory of 1927, which listed his occupation as building contractor

His relatives in Nebraska had (unconfirmed) reports that he had been killed by a fall while he was repairing the roof of his residence in Colorado Springs in 1904 or 1905. It was apparently believed by his sister and mother that his wife and child(ren) were returning to Nebraska, but in spite of searching for them, they still had located no trace of them by 1925.

Following the death of William's mother, in a letter dated 25 June 1925 to the County Judge at Burwell, Nebraska, Inez's brother David S. PARKHURST wrote: "Dear Sir; I do not know where Will Tuma Coleman is. The last I heard of him he was at Hazard, Nebraska, with his wife and little girl. His wife was my sister and he is my brother-in-law. Yours Truly, D. S. Parkhurst, Minatare, Nebraska, R.R. #2." (Note that relatives were aware that the surname had been changed from TUMA to COLEMAN.)

In 1940-46 he served as Justice of the Peace of Jackson Township in Boone Co., Arkansas.
