German J. Coffey

German was a son of Nebuzaradan and Elizabeth Easley Coffey. Neb and Elizabeth were married Sep. 13, 1810 in Wayne Co., KY and apparently left Kentucky after about 1834 because most of their children were born in that state, the last in 1834. However, I have not found a reliable source for the birth of their last two children, Denton and Lowisa [sic]. Both Neb and Elizabeth died in Oregon and are buried in the Aumsville Cemetery in Marion Co., OR.

German was born Nov. 17, 1827 in Eadsville, Wayne Co., KY and died 1874 in Marion Co., OR. He married Mary Margaret Smith, place not known but probably Oregon. She was born Feb. 18, 1838 in Abingdon, Knox Co., IL and died May 3, 1922 in The Dalles, Wasco Co., AR. Six of their seven children were born in OR, and likely all seven.

Children were:

Mary L., born c1844
John Crittenden, born c1857, died Jun. 24, 1929, Salem, Marion Co., OR
Denton Darby, born Jun. 1859, died Jan. 13, 1921 in Portland, Multnomah Co., OR
Edith L., born c1864
Ellen, born c1866
Tecumseh Sherman, born c1869, died Nov. 4, 1930 in Wasco Co., OR
Frank Nebuzaradon, birth date and place not yet found
