Sherman & Maude (Lee) Spires family Grainger Co.,TN

Sherman Spires (1864-1934, buried Grainger Co., TN) married 2nd Maude Lee in 1909 Grainger Co., TN. According to Maude's obituary (1883-1950), they had these children, although I could never find them all living with them in the census: Jessie Mae, Lemmie, Harley or Harlan, Martha, Mary and Birdie. These children were all alive when their mother died in 1950. I would like to be in contact with a member of this family who can help me piece the family together. For instance, her daughter was called Mary Coffey in the Maud's obituary, I believe that she married Avery Coffey, but I would like to be sure. Her obituary also says that her daughter Birdie married Walter Sinard. I cannot find a trace of Walter Sinard anywhere. Lemmie did not marry but I am not sure if the other son was Harley or Harlan and I don't know anything about Martha. Any help on any portion of this family would be so much appeciated...sometiems even the slightest hint helps!
