I'm looking for information on a Jacob Coffman, b.11/14/1831,
The 1860 census shows him being born in Virginia.
He married and raised his family in Vigo County, Terre Haute, Indiana.
m. Jane Bradford in 1855.

Family records show that Jacob's family was Pennsylvania Dutch.
Jane's parents were John Clinton Bradford and Mary Harper.
Mary's brother was John M. Harper b. 7/19/1816 in Cincinnati, Franklin County
Ohio. The Harper family goes back to Thomas Harper founder of the historic
Town of Harper's Ferry, named so after his son Robert.

I just received a picture of Jane Bradford Coffman's Wedding Day 1855,
In the mail today, and can share it with anyone who might have a family
Connection to Jacob and Jane Coffman.
