I am searching for descendants of Lafayette Jackson Coffee/y. He was a son of Lilburn Jackson and Lucinda Sutton Coffee/y of Hope, Hempstead Co., TX. He was born in there on Sep. 13, 1866 and died in Burke, Angelina Co., TX on Jun. 19, 1950.

He married Florence (Florrie) Adams c1903. She was the daughter of Alec [?] and Jane Ann Morris Adams and was born Aug. 23, 1887 in Colorado Co., TX. Florrie's parents were from England. Florrie died Jun. 15, 1962 in Lufkin, Angelina Co., TX.

Their children were:

George Jackson, born c1904, married Nora Davison c1927. Children: Muriel, Arthur Lavhone, Doris Valeria and George Reginald.

Alma, born c1907

Nellie, born c1910

Adrette (Arlete?), born c1915

Lafayette had a brother named Albert, born Oct., 1862 in Hempstead Co. He married on Apr. 12, 1891 to Lula Belle Melson in Hempstead Co. She was born Oct., 1873 in TN.

The only child I have found for them is Lola, born Sep., 1894.

This family disappeared after the 1900 Bowie Co., TX census was enumerated.
