I am looking for someone who might have a copy of the will of James Coffee who died after 1760 in MD (possibly Frederick). He was married to Ann Dowden.

Colonial America, 1607-1789 MD Census Index
Coffey, James MD FREDERICK CO. ALL SAINTS PARISH 125 1756

He has been very illusive. I have also only found two children so far which I believe may belong to him.
1) John Dowden Coffee
2) Sarah Coffee

James has a probably brother Phillip who is little better documented but info on offspring is also limited.

Has anyone seen anything on this James Coffee in Frederick or environs? We are really at a stumped point at this juncture.
