Earnest COLEMAN, lived in Chelsea, Holt Co., NE about
1870-1890. Reportedly served during Civil War as top-secret spy.
Have evidence of service, but not of spy missions. His daugher
Alice was first white death in the area. He was one of the Holt
County Regulators and also rode with the 'Pony Boys' before that.
He was the one who slapped the horse when they hung Kid Wade.
Guess he got the job because the Kid had wounded him in an earlier
escape attempt (bullet grazed his ribs). Will gather details from
documents on hand and add to this!
