I have the COLEMAN name in my tree as a
middle-name. Since it is not a typical first name, I suspect it to be a
family surname brought in by previous generations but I have not been able to
find the connection as yet. Here is what I have:
Charlie COLEMAN MOSES, b. 12 Nov 1886, d. 25 Feb 1968. Son of John Samuel
MOSES, b. 1856 and Fannie Margaret (Maggie) KIRBY, b. 1867. Grandparents
MOSES are __?___and Susan MOSES and John S. KIRBY b. 1823? and Elizabeth
(Eliza) Ann KIRBY (maiden name was KERBY also) b. 1823?. Eliza's father was
William P. KERBY, mother's name unknown.
COLEMAN also appears as a middle name in the line of Charlie C. MOSES' wife,
Mary Jane "Mamie" MAWYER (MOYER) b. 7 Oct 1877, d. 17 Apr 1953. Her
were Joseph COLEMAN MAWYER b. 1851 and Nannie (Nancy) Jane KIRBY b. 1853.
Mary Jane's grandparents were Jacob & Sarah Jane MOYER and William Overton
KIRBY and Mary Ann KIRBY. All were from Albemarle Co., VA.
I did find a COLEMAN H. KIRBY who married Elizabeth M. JOHNSTON on 1 Dec 1838
in the Marriage Bonds and Licenses I found at the Albemarle Co. Courthouse
Charlottesville, VA. I need to go further back but it looks like I'm close.
Anybody who can help me tie all this in? Thanks,

Anderson J. Kirby
I am a great-great grandson of of Anderson J. Kirby, born 17 February
1806, Buck Island, Albemarle Co, VA; died 31 March 1886, Orearville,
Saline Co., MO. Have some data on his family from work done Mrs. Lila
Kirby Stedem of Saline Co, MO, about 1975.
Anderson first married (Albemarle Co, VA, 1825) Mary Ann Moyer; secondly
(1848 in Saline Co, MO) Nancy Kennedy Brockman. Anderson was the son of
Noel Kirby and Sally Bishop (daughter of Francis Bishop).
The confusion starts with the parents of Noel. Have seen several
possibles, but nothing confirmed, but I have data for most of Noel's
Based on given name of Anderson, I have tried to tie to the Anderson
family without success.

The Nancy Kirby that I believe was the daughter of my Henry R. Kirby Sr. and his
wife Ann was born October 14, 1785 in Albemarle Co., VA. She married Lewis C.
Anthony on August 22, 1804. Lewis was born October 19, 1785 in NC.
The reason that I BELIEVE that Nancy Kirby was the daughter of my Henry
Kirby Sr. is that on May 21, 1816, her husband Lewis C. Anthony was given Power of
Attorney by Henry Jr. to sell the land in Albemarle Co., VA that belonged to the deceased
I do not have the information with me at this moment but I am almost positive
(if I remember correctly) that Nancy and Lewis were living in Rutherford Co., TN at the
time of his being given Power of Attorney, which was
My Kirby line moved from Albemarle Co., VA to Rutherford Co., TN and married into
the following lines:
Henry R. Kirby Jr. married Mary Hudson
Sarah Ann Kirby married James Madison Anderson
Henry Madison Anderson married Nancy E. Baxter
Martha "Mattie" Virginia Anderson married Franklin Pierce Weeks
(They moved from Rutherford Co., TN to Canadian, Pittsburg Co., OK in 1908)
Hettie May Weeks married Walter Charles Salmans (my grandparents)
Howard Ray Salmans married Lessie Mae Haynes (my parents)
Glenda Rae Salmans married Ronald Joseph Ferrari
Hope that this in some way will help you. Glenda Ferrari
My belief is that Henry BAKER Kirby Sr. and Jr. was NEVER in Rutherford Co., TN.
I just think some have erroneously thought that they were the same Henry and
I believe that they are different Henrys. I think that there is a Henry R. Kirby Sr.
& Jr. and also a Henry Baker Kirby Sr. & Jr. My Henry R. Kirby Sr.
& Jr. were in Albemarle Co., VA and Rutherford Co., TN.
I have seen people mix the information about the two Henrys and report it all as if
it was for one Henry.
Has anyone heard of a Edmond R. Kirby? I
will give what little information
that I have. My great-grandfather was Jefferson Randle Kirby, born in 1845,
died in 1925. On his marriage certificate to Nannie Sprouse he states that
his parents are E.R. & Mildred C. Kirby. He married Nannie in Albemarle Co,
VA. I found in the 1850 Albemarle Census that list a 35 year old Edmond
married to a Mildred ( age 25). Also, listed is a 5 year old Randle, and 2
year old Mary, and a 1 year old William. Quite by accident, I found another
brother. On his marriage to Sarah Bass, he list his name as Joseph James
Thomas Kirby with parents as E. R. & Mildred C. Kirby. Edmond and Mildred
are listed in that 1850 census but I have not been able to find them before
or after that. Jefferson shows back up in 1880 Albemarle Census living in
the Sprouse household working as a farm laborer. I have since found on the
USGENWEB that a Edmond Kirby married a Mildred C. Thomas in 1841 in Fluvanna
I have not been able to find out any more information on my E. R. (Edmond) &
Mildred, or Mary, William, or Joseph. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank-you in advance
