Jane Coffey (c1814 to 1880)

Continuing with the children of Jordan Coffey by John Taylor


Jane Coffey, daughter of Jordan and Elizabeth, married Meredith Allen. The family stayed in Amherst County beyond 1840, but by 1850 had moved to Tazewell County, where they lived in the western district. At this time, the family consisted of "Mirideth" (54 years old); Jane (36); Addison (14); Elizabeth (12); Malvina (10); Mary (6); Mirideth (4); and Jane (1). By 1860 the family was living in Wayne County, which later became a part of West Virginia. Addison and Elizabeth were not with the family at that time. When the census was taken in 1870, Jane was living in Kanawa County, WV within the township of Charleston. Meredith was evidently dead by this time. Jane shows later in the Mortality Schedule in Ceredo, Wayne County, WV, where she is probably buried.
