[The following appeared in the Sep., 1992 Coffey Cousins' newsletter, No. 48, p11. Pauline was the wife of Cabinis Coffey, born Nov. 6, 1811, probably in KY, and died Dec. 17, 1878 probably in IL. He and Pauline were married Dec. 6, 18341 in Morgan Co., IL.2 Cabiness was the son of Ananias (Nias) Coffey and Jane Hindman.
