Sparta, Ga. March 13 (UP)
     J.H. Coleman, whose home was used as quarters by Sherman's men on their march to the sea still has a memento of the Civil war visit.
    The Coleman house, know as the old Cheely home at Shoals, on the Ogeechee river, is being remodelled. But the owner has carefully preserved a section of the wall where the Yankees wrote their names and will have it framed and hung on the refinished wall. The yellowed names, the more than 75 years old, still are legible.
