Not sure if there is any connection, but my GGGreat Grandfather was Elisha Puett(abt. 1809-?). Known to have been in Keosaqua, Iowa abt. 1839(a street is named for him there. He married Harriet Lee(Father was Colonel Edward Lee), cousin to Gen. Robert E. Lee. They had the following offspring: Sarah Elizabeth(married a McAtee), Mary Ann(married a McAtee), Austin, William, Joseph(married a McAtee), Margaret, & James Madison Puett. Joseph Puett's offspring, amongst others was Elisha Charles B: 1865.. Elisha Charles had a son named Coleman.
Hope there is somehow a connection.
