John Coalter

 

“This stone is erected in Memory of JOHN COALTER of Chatham.  Of humble origin, he rose to eminence Less by the display of uncommon talents than by moral worth. By an integrity that none ever questioned. A fidelity that evaded no duty. A firmness that defied a like temptation and danger. And a sincerity simplicity and kindness of nature That won the hearts of all who approached him. The records of his country testify the honourable posts which he filled. Of his private virtues all who knew him can speak. But the Depth of his unpretending goodness is known only to God whom he worshipped in the secret of his own heart. While in every act of his life he served him openly. To him who gave it the Spirit has returned. The dust lies here. His children have placed this Stone To record his virtues to his children’s children. He was born in Rockbridge, Virga Aug, 20th 1769 And died at Chatham, near this place Feb. 2nd 1838.”

“Touching this spot lie the Remains of St. George Tucker Coalter, Esq only son of John Coalter, who followed his Father to the grave before this tomb was completed. He died August 19, 1839, Aged 30 years 2 Months and 7 Days. A son worthy of such a father.”

[1] John Coalter (August 20, 1771 – February 2, 1838) was born in Rockbridge County, Virginia. He was a tutor in the family of Judge St. George Tucker in Williamsburg and studied law at the College of William and Mary in 1789. After graduation he settled in Staunton, Virginia and practiced law there. After being Commonwealth’s Attorney for several years, he was appointed to the General District court for Staunton in 1809. On May 11, 1811, he was appointed to the Supreme Court of Appeals of Virginia. He owned Chatham Manor near Fredericksburg, Virginia.[1] About 1821, he moved to Richmond, Virginia where he lived until his death on February 2, 1838.

Coalter died in Richmond and was buried at Chatham Manor, but his remains were later moved across the Rappahannock River to the cemetery of St. George’s Church in Fredericksburg.His and his last father-in-law’s demise led to legal complications, as his widow Hannah Coalter wanted to free the slaves she inherited, which was not permitted at the time, although was permitted in a will, which she had drafted and redrafted by acclaimed lawyers before she died in 1857.

[3]William and Mary – John Tyler letter to him in 1834
John Tyler, Senate Chamber [Washington, D.C.], to John Coalter, Fredricksburg, Va. Appreciates the honor conferred upon him by the citizens of Fredericksburg which was sent by him [JC]; his motives in the public office have been to uphold the Constitution and the laws and to restrain executive power; those maintaining opposite opinions have been diminished due to “that event which has transpired since many of the elections took place”; regrets inability to meet with them. 2 pp. TCy of ALS.

[4] He attended Liberty Hall Academy (now Washington and Lee University). He became tutor to the children of St. George Tucker and studied law. He returned to Augusta County where he practiced law.  He was appointed sheriff in 1791 and clerk of the District Court in 1793, was appointed judge of the Circuit Superior Court of Law in 1809, and a judge of the Court of Appeals in 1811, serving until 1831. Coalter was a member of the Virginia Constitutional Convention of 1829-1830. He married first Maria Rind in 1790; second, Margaret Davenport in 1795; third, Anne Frances Bland Tucker June 5,1802; and fourth Hannah Harrison Jones February 14,1822. He had at least three children by his third wife.

[6] Judge Coalter was born in Rockbridge County on August 20th, 1771.  He was the son of Michael Coalter and Elizabeth Moore, daughter of James Moore.

He was a tutor in the family of Judge Saint George Tucker in Williamsburg and  studied law in William and Mary College.  In 1789, he took a course under  Chancellor Wythe and Bishop Madison, president of institution.  After completing  his law course he settled near Staunton and practiced law.  He was very much reduced in circumstances and at first used to walk to his courts with clothes  and papers in a bag on his shoulders.

At first he was attorney for the commonwealth and in 1809, he was appointed a  Judge of the General Court.  On May 11, 1811, he was promoted to the Court of  Appeals.  About 1821, he went to Richmond to live and soon after purchased  “Chatham” in Stafford County, (opposite Fredericksburg) on the Kings Highway, Route #37.  Judge Coalter resided at “Chatham” until his death which occurred on  February 2, 1838.

Charles  Augustus Marray, grandson of Lord Dunmore has drawn in his “Travels” 1839 a flattering picture of Judge Coalter in these picturesque surroundings.   In this picture his face denoted frankness, energy and shrewdness.

Judge Coalter married three times (1) Maria Rind, daughter of William Rind of  Williamsburg, Editor of one of the Virginia Gazettes published in that City at  the time of the Revolution.

He married (2) Margaret Davenport of Williamsburg and (3) Frances Bland Tucker daughter of Judge Saint George Tucker.  By his last wife he left issue.

When Washington Irving was here collecting information for his “Life of   Washington” Judge Coalter took him to “Chatham” to dinner.  It was in the spring   and he had for dinner jowl, turnip salad, poached eggs and corn pone, and dried
cherry roll and hard sauce for desert.

In the year 1796, a petition was presented to the General Assembly of Virginia  for permission to build a toll bridge across the Rappahannock river to  Fredericksburg from the lower line of land of “Chatham”.  This was granted and  records indicate that it was a toll bridge and owned by private parties for  nearly a century, and yet when the city purchased the bridge it had been owned by only three people, William Fitzhugh, Judge John Coalter and Charles S. Scott.   The bridge was formerly known as the “Chatham Bridge” but it is now call the  Free Bridge as there is no longer any toll charge.

In 1861, the bridge was destroyed by fire.
In 1889, by a flood.
In 1890, the site was purchased by the City of Fredericksburg and they erected  the present iron bridge which is about 1000 feet long.

St. George Tucker Coalter (2 June 1809-19 Aug. 1839) was the son of Virginia Court of Appeals Judge John Coalter (1769-1838) and his third wife, Ann Frances Bland Tucker (1785-1813). Ann was the daughter of St. George Tucker, a noted lawyer, jurist, and law professor in Revolutionary Virginia, and through her mother, Frances (Bland) Randolph Tucker, was the half-sister of Congressman John Randolph of Roanoke. John and Ann Coalter had 3 children, St. George Tucker, Frances, and Elizabeth, but only St. George Tucker and Elizabeth had children.

Coalter was born in Staunton, VA, during the early period of his father’s career, and then was educated in Richmond, VA, schools. He attended the University of Virginia in sessions 2-4 (1826-1828), and spent the rest of his life as a farmer at his father’s Chatham estate in King William County, VA.

On 16 Dec. 1829, St. George Tucker Coalter married Judith (Judy) Harrison Tomlin (1808-1859), and they had the following children: Walker Tomlin (d. young), John, Henry Tucker, Ann Frances Bland, Virginia Braxton, and St. George Tucker Coalter Jr. St. George Tucker Coalter Sr. died at the age of 30 of an unspecified illness that had plagued him all his life. He is buried at St. George’s Episcopal Church, Fredericksburg, VA. Though he has only a small stone marker, he is noted in the inscription on his father’s memorial:
Touching this spot lie the remains of St. George Tucker Coalter, Esq., only son of John Coalter, who followed his Father to the grave before this tomb was completed. He died August 19, 1839, Aged 30 years 2 Months and 7 Days. A son worthy of such a father.
St. George Tucker Coalter’s three sons also attended the University of Virginia, John Coalter in sessions 26-28 (1849-1852), Henry Tucker Coalter in sessions 26-30 (1849-1854), and St. George Tucker Coalter in session 36 (1859-1860).
