    Notes 
    • Carolyn Whittington wrote FEB 4th 2001:  "...the 1826 Atascosito Census taken by the
      Spanish while Texas was still part of Mexico, covering Liberty and surrounding counties in southeast Texas is in a book called "Liberty, Liberty County and the Atascosito District"  by Miriam Partlow. ...t it lists the full names of all members of the household, adults and children alike, and also gives the maiden names of the married women. Within that census is listed Rebecca Holsten, described as the widow of John Coleman, age 56, owner of 1 slave, born in Tennessee.  There is also listed several young women with the maiden name of Coleman (most likely the daughters of Rebecca and John) who were married to other early settlers of the Atascosito District:
      (1) Catherine Coleman, 29, born Louisiana, wife of Philip P. Dever,
      (2) Mary Coleman, 32, born Louisiana, wife of James Martin
      (3) Sally Coleman, 26, born Louisiana, wife of David Minche
      (4) Adelia Coleman, 19, born Louisiana, widow of John Yocum
      "If I'm not mistaken, Hebert's Records of Southwest Louisiana shows Rebecca as a daughter of Stephen Holstein. One of the children of Catherine was named Henry Holstein Devers, further evidence of the family's connection to the Holstein family. According to Liberty County land records, Rebecca Coleman came to Texas in 1825 and died in 1836. I suspect that the presence of  these relatives in Texas was a factor that influenced Melina and her brother William K. Dalton to leave Louisiana and settle specifically in Liberty County.  Melina may have found refuge in their households after leaving Elisha.
