My wife's family comes from Jackson Co. In the Scott-Red Hill Cemetery in Gainsboro, Jackson Co., there is a stone with the name W.T.Coffey (Maybe your grandfather?), born 5/26/1877 - died 4/20/1946. It is an old stone and hard to read. I don't know the relation to all the other Coffees buried there. My wife's great grandfather was Jonah Coffee and his wife was Schrilda Scott. Jonah 7/25/1883 - 9/10/1978. Schrilda 11/2/1892 - 1/11/1970. Jonah's parents were Jim and Jenetta (Tayes)Coffee. Schrilda's parents were Jake and Amanda (Ledbetter) Scott. I was told that the Coffees came from KY. Hope this helps!
