I have checked around and don't have any concrete proof but believe he could be a child of Colbert L. Coffee b ca 1811 d 1849 (also sp Coffy, Coffey). Some files indicate Colbert might be a child of Newton Coffey/Sarah Meredith.

If he is a son of Colbert his mother should be Catherine Willard to whom he was wed 28 FEB 1830 in Marion Co, MO. Catherine died prior to 1847. They were in the 1830 census in Montgomery Co, IL and in the 1840 census in Bond Co, IL (shows 1m 0-5, 2m 5-10, 2f 0-5). Colbert married again to Milly (Allen) Davis.

COFFEE, CALBERT L DAVIS, MILLY 07/16/1847 A/ 159 BOND CO, IL

They had a son Andrew b. 1848 and Colbert died 1849. Milly is in the 1850 census in Montgomery Co, IL with three children. She married Jacob Lyerla after the census and eventually ends up in Eastburn Co, TX and is buried there.

This tells some about Newton Coffey and that line.

Talk to Jack Coffee to see what else he knows about the Newton line.
