I would also like to know a little more about Nathaniel Coffee!! I have family who have told me that MArtha was a Jouett BUT i want to see definitive proof and until i see it- she will remain MARTHA. I link in through Martha's son with George Barker- Andrew Jackson Barker( my 4th great grandfather) I have been trying to fins any links and none have come up- cannot find a marriage to Nathaniel (NOR GEORGE- conveniently the courthouse was burnt down!) It took a while for me to even register who Granville Coffee was until someone sent me a link for the Supreme Court records and i read through them. You also mention them. in them it also mentions Milner Francis Crouch (this is where it got confusing for me and my research- My grandad told me that Martha was a Crouch and he is still convinced!! But it meant i was following the wrong lead for some time!) But it mentions " the said defendant M F Crouch, as administrator of the estate of one George Barker,deceased, (with whom the said Martha had intermarried!!!) What exactly is being suggested? Seems strange if there were "Bad Feelings" with the Crouches as i have a family photo in 1905 and the Barkers are with the Crouch family. (which again could be why my grandad had said Martha was a Crouch. I just hate hitting a brick wall- Nathaniel must of had some family- so why do i feel like im the only one researching?? And what happened to Granville to die so young?
