Joseph C. Coffey

I have Joseph C. Coffey, born between 1802-05 in Nelson Co., VA, as a son of Edmond Stewart Coffey, Jr., and wife Matilda (Tildy) Fitzgerald. Joseph married Elizabeth Phillips in Nelson Co. on Nov. 3, 1825.

The only children that I have for them are:

  1. Matilda S., born Apr. 7, 1829 in Nelson Co., died Dec. 6, 1901 in Nelson Co. Married Edmund J. Campbell, born Aug. 10, 1822 in Nelson Co., died Mar. 23, 1896 in Nelson Co. I have recorded 11 children (one questionable) for them: Samantah, born c1845; William F., born c1848; Sarah J., born c1851; Drucilla, born c1853; Matilda, born Feb. 7, 1855, died May 27, 1934; Martha, born c1855; Ellis Henry, born Sep. 3, 1857, died Oct. 18, 1913; Arbelia, born c1860; James Forrest, born Jun. 1, 1866, died Dec. 25, 1932; E. J. W., born c1869, and Oscar Parker, born Jan. 24, 1876, died Nov. 1, 1963. Oscar is the one that is questionable. Although born in 1876, he was not enumerated with the family in the 1880 census.
  2. Joseph C., Jr., born Jun. 18, 1843. He married Mary Jane Coffey Apr. 27, 1865 in Nelson Co. She was the daughter of Rev. Henry Benjamin and Mary Sarah Campbell Coffey. Mary Jane was born Jun. 7, 1843 in Nelson Co. I have recorded four children for them: Alice E., born Mar. 25, 1867; Henry J., born Oct. 3, 1870, died Jun. 24, 1945; Rosa Lee (Rosie), born c1874, and Clara, born c1879.
In addition to Joseph C., Edmond and Matilda's other children, as I have them, are John W., born c1805, died Mar. 1864; Rev. Henry Benjamin, born c1808; Mary S., no dates; and Nancy, born c1810.
