Davis Finley Coffey [Revised Aug. 17, 2009]

Some months ago I wrote a short blurb on Davis Finley Coffey as part of a blog on his parents, John Calvin and Nancy Caroline Tuttle Coffey. At that time I did not have much on Davis and his wife, Rose Amanda Grant.

Davis was born Oct. 3, 1883 in Risden*, Caldwell Co., NC and died Dec. 17, 1970** in Goldendale Klickitat Co., WA. Rose Amanda was born in Jan., 1888 in Wisconsin to Barton H. and Nellie Cook Grant. She died Apr. 24, 1972** in Spokane, Spokane Co., WA. I have not yet discovered their burial place. They were married in March, 1912 in Ritzville, Adams Co., WA.***

I know of eight children born to this union, all born in Washington state:

Helen M., born c April, 1913, died Mar. 31, 2007 in Yakima Co., WA. She married George Hitzler. Washington state death records contain an entry for two men with this name. The likely spouse of Helen is the one born in 1897 and died March, 1977 in Yakima Co. No children identified so far.

Vera Pearl, born Jan. 9, 1915 in Marengo, Adams Co., died Feb. 19,1998. She married a Mr. Morgan. No further information.

Byron W., born Dec, 15, 1916, died Nov. 14, 2000 in Granger, Yakima Co.

Ralph Calvin, born Nov. 11, 1918, died Dec. 7, 2003 in Yakima Co., married Bonnie LNU.

Gladys, born c1921, said to have married Larry Sybouts.

Edith, born c1923, died Jun. 24, 2004, said to have married a Orville C. Jauhola.

Robert, born c1925, Married Wanda LNU

Barbara, born c1929, said to have married a Mr. Swett.

If you can add to or correct any of this info please drop me a note at the above e-mail address. I would especially like to know where Davis and Rose are buried.
