The folling information is verified fact, relating to Elijah Coffee of Rabun County Georgia; of whom I am a direct desendant.
Only information that I know to be 100% accurate is posted. Hope you can use this information in your research.
Elijah was the identical twin of Elisha Coffee (one was crossed-eyed, it was the only way to tell them apart). Brother of General Edward Coffee, Cleveland , John , Bashaba and Joel. Who migrated to Rabun Co., GA, from the upper part of SC., around 1821. "Sketches Rabun County History", pgs. 101-102.
He is on the Ashe CO., NC. tax list for 1815, along with Jesse Coffee, (Jesse may be his father, I have not confirmed this).
The following is speculation.
Old Pendleton District SC.
There is another Elijah Coffee listed in the Malitia of NC. as a Cpl., in the 1838 Indian Removal. I doubt that he went from 3rd Lt., to Cpl., and his age would have been 50 yoa.
This concludes my information on Elijah Coffee. Please try to prove/disprove this information if you can.
