In August of 2005 I wrote a short note on Beeler Coffey. Click on the title link to read that piece, and to find a link to the file submitted by Sharon Steele-Smith of Roswell, GA. Sharon has created and shared with me a very fine document that includes numerous photographs of her Coffey, Sherfey, and Cross ancestors.
