Hello cousin Walshes!

Charles and Milton Coleman were the brothers of my great grandmother. When my grandfather was born in 1882 he was named Charles Milton Newcomb to commemorate his fallen uncles.

Deputy Coleman
Thanks for your service to your community and to this great nation. Your combat record in the Civil War says a lot about your DNA and who you were. Thank you to you and your brother for your ultimate sacrifice. It is also so good to see you still have family members who cherish their linage and can always walk tall knowing they had such exceptional ancestors.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and twenty-eighth anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.

How hard it must have been for your family to lose you and your brother in the same incident.
