I have discovered the answer to this query:
My ancestor was John Coffee born about 1790 in Oconee County, SC, son of Jesse Coffey of Wilkes County, NC.
John Coffee married Winiford Neville before 1819 possibly in Rabun County, GA, where they lived near his brother, General Edward Coffee and his wife, Elizabeth Neville, sister to Winiford. John Coffee died in 1822, but not before Winiford gave birth to James Calton Coffee, November 3, 1819 in Rabun County. After John's death, Winiford and James Calton Coffee were under the guardianship of Edward Coffee until Winiford married Solomon Beck in 1825. In 1836 Solomon and Winiford Neville Coffee Beck migrated to Ball Ground, Cherokee County, GA. They are buried in the Sharp Mountain Baptist Church Cemetery, and the spellings are as printed here. James Calton Coffee and his bride, Adaline Burns also won land in Cherokee County, but in the area around Hightower Baptist Church, were their first son, John Edward Coffee (15) is buried.
James Calton Coffee and his family, along with his sons-in-law, Leonard and Wilke, migrated in 1869 to Gassville, Baxter County, Arkansas. James Calton Coffee died in Chattanooga, Comanche Co., Oklahoma, but was buried in Baxter County, AR.
