Cabaius and Pauline Orr Coffey

Cabaius was a son of Ananias and Jane Hindman¹ Coffey, born Nov. 6, 1811 in KY, died Dec. 17, 1878 in IL, probably in Cass Co.  His burial site has not been located by anyone that I know.  Pauline was born Aug. 1, 1817 in Green Co., KY and died in Ashland, Cass Co., IL on Jan. 18, 1888.  She and Cabaius were married in Morgan Co., IL on Dec. 6, 1834.

Mr. J. Heath Vogel recently contacted me with information that his parents were in possession of the Cabaius Coffey family Bible and wished to dispose of it through auction.  In the meantime however, he generously took time to copy the following pages and send them to me for use as I saw fit.

Information about their death and burial sites would be welcomed.

¹ Jane was the daughter of Alexander Hindman of Green Co., KY.  There is some discrepancy about the marriage as well as the birth of Nancy, their first child.  See Coffey Cousins' newsletter of Dec. 91, pages 4-5, and Sep., 1992, page 11.  Some researchers place another child, Ananias (born 1846) between Marshall and John David.  See Coffey Cousins' newsletter, Dec., 1989, Page 2.
