Elizabeth was married to James Pendleton, my 5th great grandfather. She was James's second wife. I've seen Elizabeth's maiden name as Clayton on some trees on ancestry.com, but I think it's possible that folks are confusing her with James's brother Nathaniel who married Elizabeth Clayton.
Elizabeth Coleman and James Pendleton had three sons and one daughter: Henry (1733-1798), James (1735-1793), Anne (1740-1815), and Philip (1741-1793, my 4th great grandfather).
I suspect Coleman is correct as Elizabeth's maiden name, but I don't have any proof. Her son Philip named a son Coleman (my 3rd great grandfather). I've not seen the name Coleman anywhere else in my search. Another possibility is that she could have been married to a Coleman before she married James.
One day, I hope to find out more about Elizabeth.
