William B. Coffey (born c1800 in SC)

Jo Ann Hatch in Arizona is looking for the parents of William who married Delila Trentham in Hall Co., GA on 17 Mar. 1822.

She has located the family in Campbell Co., GA land recorda and in the 1850 census of Chatooga Co., GA. By 1860 they are in Parker Co., TX.

Their children were Richardson "Rich" Coffey; Elizabeth Coffey who married Joseph Warren Beddo; Clominda Jane Coffey who married Solomon G. Maxwell; John Henderson Coffey who married Mary Elizabeth Gray and Thursa M. Coffey who married Joseph E. Sentle.

Jo Ann is especially interested in Elizabeth who married Joseph Warren Beddo. She had two sons by Beddo, and when he died she and the two children moved back with her parents in 1850. Jo Ann wrote that the two sons moved to TX, and needs to know if Elizabeth Coffey Beddo remarried, remain in GA, or move to TX with her sons.

Anyone researching this family can contact Jo Ann by writing to me for contact info.

  1. Checking my files I find very few Coffey families in SC. The ones that are there seem to be mostly from the John Coffey-Esther Givens line.

    John was born c1775 in Lancaster Co., SC, and married Esther c1794, probably in the same county. Esther was born c1775 in NC, probably Mecklenburg Co., dau. of Wm Givens who died there in 1798, and wife Jennet.

    There was also a Jesse Coffey who died in the Pendleton Dist., SC in 1807. I know of one child, Basheba, born 1782 in Oconee Co., and died 1878 in Rabun Co., GA. She married Wm Jones. Jesse also had a son named Cleveland, but I have no info on him.

    I will write more about Coffey in SC in the blog.
