I am also researching the Coffey Family of Wayne Co. , Pulaski Co. , and Russell Co. I start with Lewis Coffey , born about 1813, and married Elizabeth Betsy Watters. One of their children Millie Ann Coffey married William Smith.
One of their children was James Shelby Smith who married Kizzie Foster, and one of their children was Alpha Smith, who married Henry Edward Johnson, they are my wifes Grandparents. Do we have a tie ? I would be interested in sharing information with you if we do.

Yes this is the same family. Lewis Coffey was the nephew of Lewis Russell Coffey.
I'll give you a little bit, till I have more time. All I have comes from the Coffey Book.
Lewis Coffey, son of James and Sarah Coffey, was born in the year 1813 in Burke Co,NC. When he was about two years of age, he and his parents moved to Wayne Co.,KY.
Please contact me. My cousin Harvey Lee (related to me through the McBeath family) is descended from Elijah Columbus b. 1843, the brother of Millie Coffey.
Perhaps the following will help you.
