Looking to help a relative find info on the Coffey family of Orleans County. She writes the following:

I have been tracing my Dad's side of the family for years and am at a stand still.  Thomas Coffey (my gg grandfather)  died between 1888 and 1893. Killed by a train (he was supposedly drunk) left his 2nd wife Susan and a young son  John Frances.  He was killed in the Albion, Medina, Kent, Orleans County Area in NY.  St Joseph's Catholic Church in Albion, tell me he is buried between his first wife Ellen and his 9 year old daughter Mary Elizabeth Coffey.  But they cannot tell me for sure as they do not have a written record of his burial.
