I'm looking for information on Newton Coffey (born about 1778) in North Carolina. He and his wife Mary (some sources say her name was Sarah) had at least 2 children (Thomas and Cleveland,born 1803) in N. Carolina. They were living in Montgomery County, Ill. by 1826 when Thomas married Nancy Bradley. Newton died in Illinois in 1858. Any information on Newton's parents, Mary/Sarah's maiden name and family?
