Searching for information on Lewis (Louis) E. Coffee, born Aug. 17, 1875 in Hempstead Co., AR, and died Jul 14, 1947 in San Bernardino Co., CA.At the time of death, he was a resident of Los Angeles, and resided at 1308 W. 91st St.
His death certificate shows that he was divorced, and that his wife's name was Belle.Additional research shows that upon his death, his ex-wife - then remarried - was Belle Cook.She, and their two children, Orval Preston Coffee (b. 1915 in TX, d. 1989 Del Norte, CA) and Everette M. Coffee (no info)arranged for Lewis' burial in Inglewood.
The death record for Orval shows that his mother's maiden name was Nichols.
The SSDI shows that the last benefit paid upon Orval's death was to Brookings, Curry Co., OR.This may have been to Orval's child(ren).There appears to be no one named Coffee in Brookings today.
Someone once posted a query in the COFFEY forum about Orval and Everette, but failed to respond to my follow-up.
Any information on any of these people would be greatly appreciated.
