Athan and Mary McGuire Coffey

Athan was a son of Smith and Hannah Boone Coffey. In all census records from 1850 to 1880 he is recorded as Athan Coffee. He married Mary McGuire, c1840 in North Carolina. He is thought to have been born Jan. 27, 1820 in North Carolina, but his death date and place is unknown.

Mary was born c1821 in Tennessee, although in later census records she reported that she was born in Georgia. Athan also reported Georgia as his place of birth in some census records. Mary's death date and place is also unknown.

Mary and Athan had at least 10 children:

- William Harvey, born 1842
- Michael Smith, born 1843
- Susan Caroline, born 1845
- Josiah B., born 1849
- Mary E., born c1851
- Sarah J., born c1853
- Athan N., born 1858
- Hannah V., born c1859
- Nichols L., born c1863
- Emma S., born c1866

I would appreciate hearing from anyone researching Athan and his descendants.
