I am a descendant of James B. Cofield (b. 1825, Washington Co., GA) and Mahala A. Lavenia Hall through their son, Thomas Richard "Dick" Cofield (b. ca 1855, GA) who married Harriet Christie. I believe that Harriet died in Georgia between 1885 and 1888. Richard married 2nd Savannah Knight in Georgia before 1900. Richard may have married a 3rd time...see below info.
I am looking for any information on this family. I am especially interested in any info on Harriet Christie.
