From Philadelphia, commissioned November 15, 1776 in the 9th Regiment of the Pennsylvania Line as 1st Lieut.; discharged August 27, 1778, remark “Left out of the new Arrangement.” He received two hundred acres of bounty land in Muskingum County, Ohio. Most of Nicholas’ war records evidently were burned by the British during the War of 1812. According to “Biographical and Portait Cyclopedia of Montgomery County Pennsylvania” he served in Proctor’s Artillery and was wounded at the Battle of Brandywine. I have not been able to find an original source to prove the parentage of his son Nicholas Coleman, born in 1801.
