Zachariah and Margaret Coffey Coffey

I am searching for information on Zachariah and Margaret's descendants. I suspect that Zachariah was born c1817, son of Joseph and Isabella Lindsay Coffey, and that Margaret was the daughter of Jesse and Margaret Edminston Coffey. She was born about 1816.

Zachariah and Margaret were first cousins. Their fathers were brothers.

Children of Zachariah and Margaret, as gathered from the 1850 Watauga Co., NC and 1860 Caldwell Co., NC census records were:

Martha Renia, born c1837
Cleveland, born c1839
David, born c1842
Jesse, born c1843
Patterson, born c1843 [Jesse and Patterson may be the same person]
Collis, born c1845
Delight, born c1842
Joseph R., born Dec. 2, 1850
Aletha, born c1852
Scott Raban, born c1853
Julius Calvin, born c1855
Eldelano, born c1858
Elizabeth, born c1860

Joseph is likely the Joseph R. that married Martha Elizabeth Gragg on Sep. 18, 1869 in Caldwell Co. Martha was born May, 1850 in Caldwell Co., and died Apr. 1930, also in Caldwell Co. Joseph died May, 1936 in Caldwell Co.1

Their children were:

Reuben Finley, born 1870, died 1955
Martha L., born c1872
David William, born c1874
Leonard Dealer, born Mar, 1876, died Apr., 1960
John Wesley, born c1877, died 1967
Roby C., born c1881
Lory V., born Mar, 1888
James Madison, born May, 1892, died Jun., 1966

Any assistance with these families would be appreciated.
