Emery E. Coffey

Emery was another son of Benjamin Coe and Lucy Barbre Coffey. I have his given name as Emery Elous, but I am uncertain about the middle name. He was born Feb. 10, 1872 in Christian Co., IL and died Jan. 10, 1948 in Mounds, Creek Co., OK. He married Alice Bertha Chadwick Feb. 10, 1892 in Corydon, Wayne Co., IA. She was born Oct. 4, 1871 in Humeston, Wayne Co., IA and died Jul. 3, 1957 in Mounds.

There were nine children born to the union, but four, including twin sons, died in infancy:

George Ray, born Feb. 16, 1893, died Jan. 23, 1965. He married Nettie L. Banes, born c1894 in MO. They had at least one child, Ara, a daughter, born c1914. The family can be found in the 1920 and 1930 Tulsa Co., OK census.

Myrtle May, born May 17, 1895 in Humeston, died Mar. 24, 1984 in Jay, Deleware Co., OK. She married George Richard Jenkins on Apr. 27, 1913 in Mounds. He was born Dec. 8, 1886 in Schuyler, Colfax Co., NE and died Apr. 23, 1971 in Bixby, Tulsa Co., OK. They had at least two children: Wilma, born about Feb. 1914, died Jul. 1, 1914, and Loren Richard Jenkins, born Dec. 21, 1916. [Loren is a personal friend.]

Harvey, born Mar. 13, 1897 in Wayne Co., IA, died Mar. 20, 1897, also in Wayne Co.

Albert Lee, born Jun. 5, 1899, Wayne Co., and died Aug. 25, 1902, also in Wayne Co.

Don Deyo, born Oct., 1904 in Humeston, Wayne Co., died Mar. 22, 1985 in Hutchinson, Reno Co., KS. He married Murl [LNU] c1927 in OK. She was born in that state c1906. I have found one child, Betty, born c1928.
