Clifton Connard Coffey (1876-1967)

After a setback, health wise, over the month, I am once again back at the keyboard.  I have not received any offers or comments to my proposal to share blog authorship.  As a result, I am as yet unsure how much of an interval there will be between blogs and/or if I will even continue.  It is a chore and there does not now appear to be as much enthusiasm for my work as it has been.  We'll see!

Clifton Connard Coffey was a son of John and Rosanna Jane "Roxie" Nash Coffey.  He was their second son and child born in year 1876 and was born on Nov. 27.  Their first born was Lampkin, in Jan., 1876.

Clifton married Myrtle A. Martin on Apr. 30, 1911 in East Bend, Yadkin Co., NC.  Myrtle was a daughter of Wesley Alexander and Flora Anna Poindexter Martin and was born in Aug., 1891.
A little bit of info about the Martin and Poindexter families:
