      BRITISH MERCANTILE CLAIMS 1775 - 1803
      Claims of Geo: McCall & Company (pp. 29-31):
      Robert Coleman Senr., Culpeper . £8.14.4-1/2 by note. He died intestate in Culpeper County about
      1793. His administrator is Philip Clayton, now of the same county. He knows nothing of any British claims except the share he was bound to pay James Harford as a partner in the firm of Philip Clayton & Company, nor are there any papers left by him that will throw light on the subject. At the peace and some time before Rt. Coleman possessed but very little property, not more than one slave besides a tract of land. He was far advanced in age and had for many years before broken up house keeping and lived alternately with his children. Although he did not possess much property he was generally considered an honest man and would have been reputed solvent. Long after his British debts were contracted he gave property to his children to an amount vastly more than sufficient to pay all his debts. John Yancy who married his daughter and who removed to Rockingham County about 1790 has some slaves in his possession formerly belonging to Robt. Coleman Senr., in consequence of which he is bound to pay some of his British debts. It is probable the old man imposed this obligation upon him at the time of the gift.
      Since the peace it is extremely doubtful whether the amount of thie claims now existing against him could have been satisfied without selling his land, which the laws of our state would not compel
