Thomas Franklin Coffey

Thomas was a son of Bartlett "Bart" and Mary Hicks Coffey.  This relatively modern family has been difficult to follow through the census years.  I know that Thomas was born on Mar. 13, 1877 in Buffalo Twp., Caldwell Co. and died in that county in 1942.  He married Mary Kathryn Lingerfelt c1895.  She was born in Dec., 1877 in North Carolina.

I have found them in the 1910 census living in Patterson Twp., Caldwell Co. and Thomas' WW1 draft registration in 1918, but after that...no trace!  I know Thomas' death year from the Caldwell County Register of Deed's website.

There were at least seven children born to their union:
Robert Gaither, born Jul., 1897, married Bertha Lillian Herman.  I know of only one child, Robert Ivey, born 1917, died Jul. 15, 1977.  In 1943, Robert Ivey married Mabel Margaret Lackey, a daughter of Carl and Bertha Ward Lackey.  She was born Feb. 12, 1926 in Caldwell County and died there on Oct. 3, 2005. I know of only two children for them:  Duke Delano, born and died in 1949 and, Robert Anthony, born 1963, died 1977.

Frank Bynum, born 1900, died 1960 in Caldwell Co.

Mattie May, born Jun. 1900.

Henry Columbus, born Oct. 23, 1903, died Jul. 18, 1949 in Catawba Co.  He married Ruth Ann Carter, born Dec. 3, 1904, died Dec. 9, 1994 in Caldwell Co.  They had children:  Annie May, born 1922, died 2009 in Seattle, King Co., WA. Annie May married Kenneth Jefferson Holverstott on Apr. 29, 1950 in King Co.  He was born Oct. 5, 1925 in OR and died in King Co. on Oct. 6, 1982.  Their other children were Lois, Van, Marilyn Miller, Harold Thomas, Gary Cooper, Frances Irene, and Billy Joe, born Mar. 2, 1940, in Caldwell Co., died May 2, 2010 in Burke Co.
