After posting the last blog about Arthur E. & Nora B. Vickery Coffee, I decided to take another look at the children of William and Hillead.  Turns out, I had more information than I expected.

In addition to Arthur, child number 7, William and Hillead had at least 12 other children, all born in McDonald Co., MO:

Noah died in 1963 at Elk Point in Union Co., and both are believed buried at the Elk Point cemetery.

Grace followed on Mar. 20, 1890 and died Aug. 5, 1921 at Jane.  She apparently also never married.
