In "Austin Colony Pioneers" by Worth S. Ray (1949), p82, he writes that Holland had at least 2 siblings: America Coffee (married Col. Sam Lusk), and a General John Coffee, who lived in Williamson Co., TX, near Georgetown.Another Coffee/y researcher related to me that this Gen. Coffee was John Trousdale Coffee.
Ray also wrote that America, and by inference Holland and John were children of Ambrose Coffee.
The Southwestern Historical Quarterly, Vol LXIX, No. 2, Oct., 1965, p146 (Audy J. and Glenna Middleborrks) cites Holland as son of Ambrose and Mildred Moore Coffee, and that Mildred was dau. of Jesse Moore of VA and NC.
Dr. Marvin Coffey writes about an 1826 indenture involving the widow of Ambrose - then married to a John Mills - that listed the following children:
Jesse, Hiram, Betsey, America, Mira, Jefferson, Washington, Greenup and Emily. Greenup and Emily are thought to be his children by 2d wife, Elizabeth Rice; the others by Mildred Moore.Omitted in the indenture were James Madison, Holland, Alice and Mildred.Dr. Coffey relates that they were perhaps older and already gone from home, although some could also have been deceased.There was not a son named John included in the indenture.
