Coffee family researchers have a lot of history on Col.J.T. Coffee. My brother has visited the Coffee place in Georgetown, TX. I believe his great, great grandson maintains the Coffee estate in Georgetwon, TX. They have many Civil war antiques that was once owned by Col.Coffee. I was not aware of the Arkansas regiment at Camp Coffee, MO. He had in his command the 34th Texas dismounted cavalry from Fannian County Texas, Bledsoe's Battery from the 21st Texas Cavalry from Hunt County Texas along with his own Missouri volunteer regiment at Camp Coffee near Newtonia, MO. in the fall of 1862. He was also eariler involved in the Battle of Lone Jack, MO. Col. Coffee's regiments served as rear guard for General Sterling Price's foray through Missouri in 1862. Col.Coffee is my great, great grand uncle. Col. Coffee's son was Colonel Charles Franklin Coffee and is the Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City. He served all four years of the Civil War in the Confederate Army.
