Mary Ann,

Jasper W. Coe, who was born March 31, 1852, in Marshall County, VA, was the youngest child of Benjamin Franklin and Annie (Kerr) Coe.

Benjamin Franklin Coe, born June 4, 1814, at Moundsville, VA, was the second child of Philip and Salome (Ogle) Coe of Marshall County, VA (now WV). He married January 22, 1837, in Marshall County, Annie Kerr, who was born October 12, 1814, and died May 2, 1899, daughter of Hugh and Mary (Jolly) Kerr. The family moved to Farmington, NM, where Benjamin died May 2, 1899.

Benjamin Franklin Coe's son, also Benjamin Franklin "Frank" Coe, born Oct. 1, 1850, in Marshall County, rode with "Billy the Kid" during the Lincoln County War. He was loosely played by Charlie Sheen in the movie "Young Guns." Both Frank and his cousin George Washington Coe, son of Benjamin Franklin Sr.'s brother Thomas Coe, are mentioned often in Robert M. Utley's, "Billy the Kid: A Short and Violent Life" (Lincoln and London: University of Nebraska Press, 1989).

Frank Coe's son Wilbur Coe wrote the book "Ranch on the Ruidoso" (Library of Congress, 68-26490). George Washington Coe, who was born July 13, 1856, in Washington County, IA, wrote the book "Frontier Fighter" (University of New Mexico Press, 1934), about his exploits with "The Kid." The book makes for interesting reading.

Philip Coe, who was born September 21, 1784, in Washington County, PA, was a son of Philip and Abigail (O'Connor) Coe. The family is descended from Robert Coe, who was born in 1596 in Suffolk, England, and immigrated to Boston, MA, in 1634.

I hope this is helpful.
