Searching for descendants of my great-great-great uncle, Cleveland Laurance Coffey. He was born 1868 in Christian Co., IL to Rev. Newton Eli Coffey and Martha Louise (Vermillion) Coffey, married Hattie Ellen Rhine in 1890 in Wright Co., IA, & died 1918 in Polk Co., IA.
Children include: Tillie P. (Coffey) Davis (1892-1980), John Newton Coffey (1898-1978), and Etta A. (Coffey) Wilson (1905-)
Would like to locate a grandchild or great-grandchild of Cleveland to participate in the Family Finder project at Family Tree DNA (www.ftdna.com
). The test is no more painful than brushing one's teeth. Pre-paid kits are on hand for distribution to carefully selected cousins.
