Biographical/Historical Information

The Beginnings of the Colson Family can be traced back to 1791. The Person of record was James Colson (1768-1824) who had been enslaved by a William Nelson of York County Virginia. He was emancipated in Williamsburg around 1791 and it is certain that by 1794 James Colson was living in Petersburg Virginia.

James Colson became a barber. This was one of the occupations free African American men were allowed to engage in. In 1804, Colson purchased a lot on Union Street and around 1820 another piece of property on Oak Street. James Colson died in 1825 and his son William took over the Business. In 1826 William Colson married Sarah Elebek. One of five children fathered by Major Elebek. Elebek like Colson was also a barber and a free African American.

William Colson became interested in the American Colonization Society's (1817-1895) efforts to remove to Africa all African Americans to what would become Liberia. At this time in Petersburg the Colson and Elebek families were members of the Methodist Church. Here they met another family by the name of Roberts. The Roberts and Colson family combined and formed a mercantile business, and Roberts and his family emigrated to Liberia. William Nelson Colson remained in Petersburg and managed the business from the U.S. side. In 1835 William Colson went to Liberia to confer with Roberts where he became ill and died.

Three children came from the Union of William and Sarah Elebek Colson. James Major, Mary Alexena and William Nelson Colson. Mary Alexena Colson married John K. Shore and William Nelson married Milvina and moved to Boston, Massachusetts. James Major Colson married Fannie Meade Bolling of Petersburg in 1850. Nine children were born to this couple.

The other component of this family were a mixture of free African American and enslaved family. John Henry Hill was born in King and Queen county Virginia in 1828. Like many others born into bondage, Hill was trained as a carpenter and was hired out by his owner. Although a native of King and Queen, Hill was either sold or rented out in Petersburg and in1853 was owned by a John Mitchell. Hill had also married a free African American woman, Rose McCray and they were the parents of two young sons.

Hill was enslaved and in 1853 his owner had decided to sell him. It is unclear how Hill found out. His possible sale and instead of being sold, he escaped. Hill found his way to Canada where his wife later joined him, and the seven Hill daughters were born. After the Civil War Hill returned to Petersburg, became a prosperous Businessman and engaged in local politics.

Edna Meade Colson was born October 7, 1888, in Petersburg, Virginia, the oldest of five children to James Major Colson, Jr., and his wife Kate Hill Colson who was one of the daughters of John Henry Hill.

Included in these materials is an interesting letter from William Still and in the Alice and Henry Colson Jackson Papers correspondence regarding the House of Roberts and Colson.

Edna Meade Colson was a product of the Petersburg public school system. After graduation from Peabody High School in 1904, she continued her education at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. In 1908 she completed the Normal Course and joined the staff of Virginia State (then the Virginia Normal and Industrial Institute) in 1909. Edna Colson returned to Fisk and earned the Bachelor of Education in 1915.
