Welcome
To My KUHLMANN / Coleman Ancestry


A little about the KUHLMANN surname:

KUHLMANN was first found in Germany and came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. Kuhlmann is an ancient name.

Most German surnames are derived from occupations, colors or locations. Some are from descriptive forms, or characteristics, such as Mein (little) and Gross (big). The following surnames are of German origin: Kreuser (one who had curly hair), Schluter (one who worked as a doorkeeper of the prison), Tobler (a dweller in a forest, or ravine) and Shuck (one who made and sold shoes). Unfortunately, I do not know the meaning of Kuhlmann yet. If you know, please feel free to e-mail me directly with the definition. All such constructive input is appreciated.

Spelling variations of KUHLMANN include: Kuhl, Kuhle, Kuhlen, Kuhlemann, Kuhlmann, Kulemann, Kulmann, Kulman and many more. Most of my relations Americanized the name to COLEMAN upon reaching our shores.

Some of the first settlers in America of this name or some of its variants were: Johannes Kuhl, who came to Pennsylvania in 1741 and Georg Kuhlmann, who arrived in New York in 1710. My known ancestors immigrated to the shores of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and perhaps saw some scenes like the one below of Independence Hall in Philadelphia. The first known Kuhlmann's in my family arrived here just before the American Revolution in 1776.




Description of the Kuhlmann Coat of Arms:

Quarterly: upper left: silver and black checkerboard pattern; upper right: blue with two clouds, from which emerge human arms, which are shaking hands; lower left: blue with a silver stag rampant; the lower right is silver, with a crane.

Crest: A silver stag.

Obviously, the Kuhlmann Coat of Arms in the border of this webpage is not the Coat Of Arms mentioned above. It was created by me just as a decoration. To date, I have been unable to locate a good picture of our Coat Of Arms, if one truly did exist.


Descendants of Jacobi Kuhlmann
and Apolonia Conigum



Generation No. 1


1.  Jacobi Kuhlmann  was born 1686 in GERMANY, and probably died in Strausburg, GERMANY. He married Apolonia Conigum  February 1705 in GERMANY. She was born 1678 in FRANCE, and died February 16, 1710 in Strausburg, GERMANY.

Notes for Jacobi Kuhlmann:
Jacobi Kuhlmann and Apolonia Conigum are my paternal 7th great-grandparents. Their parentages are unknown at this time.

"Jacobi" in German translates to "James" in American, or, so I'm told.

Children of Jacobi Kuhlmann and Apolonia Conigum are:
+2 i.   Nicklas (Coleman) Kuhlmann , born February 05, 1706 in Strausburg, GERMANY; died 1784 in Mecklenburg (nka Cabarrus) County, NC. *** My Direct Lineage ***
 3 ii.  George (Coleman) Kuhlmann , born April 1708 in Strausburg, GERMANY; died Unknown in Unknown. I have been unable to learn anything more about this branch of the family to date.
 4 iii.  Jacob (Coleman) Kuhlmann , born Bet. 1709 - 1710 in Strausburg, GERMANY; died somewhere in the Americas, possibly present-day Pennsylvania or North Carolina.

Generation No. 2


2.  Nicklas Kuhlmann (Nicholas Coleman) (Jacobi1) was born February 05, 1706 in Strausburg, GERMANY, and died 1784 in Mecklenburg (nka Cabarrus) County, NC. He married Margaret [--?--] Abt. 1731 in Strausburg, GERMANY. She was born Bet. 1698 - 1718 in GERMANY, and died 1784 in Mecklenburg (nka Cabarrus) County, NC.

Notes for Nicklas (Coleman) Kuhlmann:
Nicklas Kuhlmann (changed name to Nicholas Coleman) and Margaret [--?--] are my paternal 6th great-grandparents.

NICKLAS KUHLMANN, Americanized his name to NICHOLAS COLEMAN after arriving on American soil. The whole family immigrated to America aboard the "Ship Pennsylvania Packet", arriving in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 31 October 1768. Nicholas Coleman and Jacob Coleman, believed by me to be Nicholas' brother, also signed the ship roster 03 October 1768 while enroute to the New World. The Coleman family, like so many other German immigrants, made the long trek down the Great Wagon Road from Philadelphia, through the Valley of Virginia, to the foot hills of Carolina. They settled in the Dutch Buffalo Creek area of what is now Cabarrus County, North Carolina. My branch of COLEMAN eventually migrated even further west and south through Georgia into present day southeastern or "Wiregrass" Alabama.

The wife of NICKLAS KUHLMANN aka Nicholas Coleman was Margaret. Her maiden name is currently unknown. Nicolas and Margaret [--?--] Coleman reared a family of at least three sons but I now believe there were more children born to this couple. Their known sons were: Mark Coleman born Abt. 1755, died 1817; Philip Coleman was born Abt. 1755 also, died 1828; and Jacob Coleman born Abt. 1764, died 1786.

About Mecklenburg and Cabarrus Counties, NC:
Cabarrus County, North Carolina, was formed in 1792 from Mecklenburg County. It was named in honor of Stephen Cabarrus, (1754-1808) of Edenton, several times a member of the Legislature and four times speaker of the House of Commons. It is in the south central section of the State and is bounded by Stanly, Union, Mecklenburg, Iredell and Rowan counties. The present land area is 364.10 square miles and the 1990 population was 98,935. In 1795 an act was passed naming commissioners to erect a courthouse on the land of Samuel Hugey which had already been selected as a proper place for the county seat. They were to lay out the town of Concord. Concord was incorporated in 1806, and is the county seat. Source URL: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nccabar2/index.htm .

Notes for Phillip Coleman:
PHILLIP (Kuhlmann) COLEMAN didn't take the "Oath Of Allegiance 1727-1775" with his family, therefore, it is assumed by me that he was minor at the time of his immigration to America.

Phillip married Mary E. Coleman, daughter of James and Anna Cocke Coleman. They are of the Coleman clan of Ireland. This family apparently mostly settled in Virginia. Some immigrated back to North Carolina.

Notes for William James Coleman:
William James Coleman and Mary Eliza Kennedy were my paternal 3rd great grand-parents.

I'm not sure why William James Coleman always stated to the Federal Census takers that he was born in Georgia. I assume his parents made a trek to that part of Alabama that was once Georgia. Perhaps they were searching for new land or some other reason. For now, this is a mystery yet to be unraveled!

Notes for Adna Lea "Adner" Coleman:
James Keith and Adna Lea Coleman were my 2nd great paternal grandparents.
I just learned about Adna Coleman's first marriage to William L. Stephenson. If this is true, apparently there were no living children by this marriage. Perhaps he died in the War Of Northern Aggression (Civil War to you yankees) also known as The Just Cause. :o)
Please see My KEITH Clan of Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and Alabama for further information and more complete lineages from Mrs. Adna Coleman Keith.
