Campbell Coffey

Campbell Coffey was born in TN c1831 to Asbury Marvel and Rachel Boone Coffey.  He died on May 8, 1892 in Maries Co., MO.  He is probably buried with other members of his family in the Vienna cemetery in Maries Co.
Update:  Click on the struck thru Asbury to read my theory about Marvel.  Campbell is buried at the Coffey Cemetery in Vienna.*
He was married in MO c1850 to Elizabeth Caroline Eads.  I believe they had seven children, all born in Maries Co.:

Benjamin Irven., born c1857, died in 1912.  The only marriage record that have found for Ben is the one issued for his marriage to Mrs. Martha Murphy on Mar. 5, 1885 in Maries Co.  Mrs. Murphy had at least one child, Ella, by her previous husband.  Ella, born Jan., 1874.  Martha and Ben had at least one child, a son Floid R., born May 16, 1890, died Apr. 23, 1894.
