Bud, I am very interested in Ambrose Coffee born in Dublin, Ireland in 1755. According to info I have found online his wife's name was Ailsey. Would you happen to know any more about her, her maiden name would be nice. I think there is a connection between Ailsey and "my" Violet Crouch Williams wife of Daniel Williams. On the 1787 Fayette Co. tithable list is Ambrose Coffee with a Francis Crouch shown as an additional tithable with him. In 1795, Violet Crouch Williams and her husband Daniel Williams sold land to Ambrose Coffee, which makes me think there was some family connection. I know of no family relationship of Ambrose Coffee to Daniel Williams, so figure that the connection must come through Violet to Ambrose. I believe this Francis Crouch is the Francis Crouch who married later a Hannah Hatton and/or Jenny Sparks, and was born about 1765. This would place him about the right age to be Violet's brother. Could Ambrose Coffee's wife be an additional sibling to Francis Crouch and Violet Crouch? This is my speculation, and I am hoping there is someone out there with the answers. Any help appreciated.
