Cedric Foster Coleman


We are looking for the wife and child of Cedric Coleman who did not survive the sinking. Her name was Margot Daniel Coleman and his daughter was Caroline Lorraine Coleman. Margot remarried a Ferraini who was a NY Lawyer. They lived in California at the time of the disaster. Any information of their whereabouts would be greatly appreciated. My father, Chalice Coleman, was Cedric's brother.

Dear Ms Caldwell

My name is Catherine Lorraine Coleman and I'm the daughter of Margot Daniel Coleman. I'm not sure where the "Caroline" came from but my mother was very definite that my father was Cedric Foster Coleman.

My mother and her husband, Leno Ferrerini, moved back to California in 1968. Both of them passed away several years ago.

My husband and I moved to Northern California in 1980.

I would love to hear about my father's side of the family, as my mother rarely spoke about my father.

Thank you for trying to find us.

Sincerely,
Catherine

Dear Catherine,
My mother and I were so glad to hear from you. My brother, Cedric Allen Coleman will be thrilled as well. My e-mail address is canterburycottage@gmail.com and Cedric's is cedric.coleman@cox.net. We will await an email from you and then we can forward what Cedric has on the Coleman family to you.
Mother says that Cedric Foster Coleman was one of four children, the youngest, with two older sisters and my father, Chalice Bruce. They lived in Bingham, Maine. We will send lots more later.

This is a red letter day for the Coleman family. You make the family complete!

We love you,

Ethel Coleman Caldwell

Dear, Catherine,

I was researching my family history when I stumbled on this message board.

My mother, Phyllis Coleman Mignery, was a sister of Cedric. Even though I was five at the time, I well remember the night she received news of Cedric's death. It was VJ day and people were celebrating with bonfires in the street in front of our house while my mother sat weeping in the dark. We were living in Massachusetts at the time amd my dad, an Air Corps chaplain, was still in Europe. My only direct memory of my uncle is of a very likeable man, looking sharp in his naval uniform. My mother always wondered what happened to Margot, as she moved away shortly after and did not keep in touch.

Your father had a bright future that was cut tragically short. He was born in Bingham Maine, graduated from Harvard with an engineering degree, and served on the staff of Admiral Spruance. We never stopped missing him.

David Mignery

You have 3 cousins here in Massachusetts, one in California (Modesto), several in Texas and Arizona. We all would love to hear from you. My email address is cy.donatelli@gmail.com, your Modesto California cousin is my sister, Isabelle, and her email address is belle41@sbcglobal.net, 2 other Massachusetts cousins are Susan: northacres67@gmail.com and Ginger: vcnorth@comcast.net.
