Spainhour Coffey

Spainhour Coffey was a son of Larkin and Lessie Bauguess [sic] Coffey, born Feb. 28, 1912 in Wilkes Co., NC.  He died on May 30, 1981 in Yakima, Yakima Co., WA.

Spainhour, as a given name, is unusual.  I suspect that it comes from Catherine Spainhour who married Israel Boone Coffey in Caldwell Co. on Sep. 19, 1867.  Israel was a very distant cousin of Spainhour, their common ancestor being Thomas Coffey, a son of John and Jane Graves Coffey.

Spainhour married "Toots" Norman on May 31, 1934 in Benton Co., WA. So far, I have not been able to locate any information on "Toots," and would like to know more about her.

Please contact me if you can tell me more about "Toots."
