If you have an Edward Coffey Project CD or DVD, please note the following addition and correction:
The first Margaret Elizabeth Coffey
I know of two children: Wallace E., born Aug. 11, 1917, died Sep 1, 1992; and Millard Lafayette, born Apr. 2, 1922, died Oct. 25, 1976.
The second Margaret Elizabeth Coffey
She was a sister to James Franklin Coffey. There is some confusion about her given name: Some say Margaretta while others say Margaret. I have it as Margaretta because that's the way it appears in the Caldwell Co. birth register, Vol. 6, Page 266.
Margaretta very likely remarried sometime later but so far, I have not found a second marriage record.
Please contact me if you know where the Buffalo Cove and/or the Lewis Cemeteries are located.
