Surnames: Coffee-Coffey
This is probably the line of Coffee's that moved into Oklahoma and then faded away into history. I have never found where this group originated from or where they went. I suspect their name may have been Coffey before 1810 and were in Kentucky in the latter part of the 18th century. Many of the these Coffey's originated in North Carolina and in the early ninteenth century, some changed their names to Coffee. One gentleman of the Coffey line from North Carolina was Holland Coffee(y), the famous Red River trader. At the age of 10, after Holland Coffey's parents died in Kentucky, Holland changed his name to Coffee and moved to McMinnville Tennessee to live with his uncle, Jesse Coffee. Holland moved to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) and later married Sophia Suttenfield-Auginbaugh and they had no children. In 1846, Holland Coffee was killed by Charles Galloway, who was the husband of Holland Coffee's niece. The fight in 1846 between Galloway and Coffee was over a remark made about Sophia's affair with Sam Houston following the Battle of San Jacinto in 1836. Sophia Suttenfield-Auginbaugh-Coffee-Butts-Porter remarried twice after Holland was killed and she died in 1897. This Coffey-Coffee line is not in any way related to my Coffee line from Stafford and Prince Edward County Virginia at least as far back as 1730.
