Hi,
From the middle name COFFEE I am assuming that Bettie COFFEE Holmes' mother Mary E. was a COFFEE, or that there was a COFFEE connection someplace. Bettie's death cert, 1941 Runnels Co TX, gives father as Timothy Holmes, mother unk. I have found so many errors on death cert's that I am not sure of Timothy.

Holmes husband must have died between 1852 and 1858 because in 1860 Holmes Co MS Census Mary E 29 had married M.V. Dale b MO and had another daughter Masouri 1 b MS.

Later children were Frances "Fannie" b 1862...my line, and Henry b 1864. I can't find family in 1870, but daughter Bettie m James Thomas in Burleson Co TX and daughter Fannie m Joel Smith and lived in Robertson Co TX. Still looking for my Fannie Smith's death cert, and hope it will have mother's maiden name.

I hope this is familiar to someone because I sure could use some help!

Thanks, Donna
