Re: COFFEE (Parker Co., TX)

In Reply to: COFFEE (Parker Co., TX) by Carlene Murray of 1494

When Parker Co. was formed, a petition was created. It was written by one man, not signed by all, as we think of as a petition. The Coffees listed on the petition were spelled "Coffee" because of the spelling of the petition-maker. Their names should have been spelled "Coffey", and the "R.Coffee" (at least) was in reality "Richard Coffey", the man who later was the first settler of Concho County. Found this in archives in Austin. Petition-maker's grandson gave talk at historical society meeting. Accidentally came across it, and thought it might help you.
