About Our Family Research


I am a descendent of Jacob Coffman of Virginia, and his son Abraham Coffman who was born in Virginia on June 1, 1763. Abraham married Ann (Anna) Thursby about 1784 in Hampshire
Co., VA.

Jacob Coffman the third son of Abraham was born Feb. 17, 1788 in Bourbon Co., VA(became KY in June 1792).

The family moved to Bourbon Co., VA and entered land on Flat Lick Creek about 1787. They later moved to Monroe County Indiana just after these lands were opened by treaty with the Indians.

Jacob married Nancy Earp in Bourbon Co., KY on April 26, 1810. On the 1820 census, Jacob was in Jefferson Co., IN. Jacob and Nancy had seven children before Nancy died. Henry H. Coffman was their fith child and my 3rd grgrandfather

Henry H. Coffman was born in 1821 in INDIANA. His spouses were Mary Smith, Martha Hathaway and Lucretia Watson. The third child of Henry H. and Martha Hathaway was John Calvin Coffman, my great-grandfather. He moved to Sullivan County, MO. and married Emily Armstrong, the daughter of John Armstrong and Mary E. Coy. My grandfather John Leroy Coffman was the fifth of 14 children of John Calvin Coffman and Emily Armstrong.

John Leroy Coffman married Emma Francis Stroud and they had three boys, Ogle Everett, Harvey Harold, and Hobert Dale. Harvey Harold Coffman married Olive Beatrice Reger on Oct. 8, 1927. There were two children of this union, Harold Eugene and Bonita Lorraine. My mother married George Clair Rockhold and there was one child from this union, George Duane Rockhold.

I have included information in this home page on the Armstrong, Coffman, Cutsinger, Doggett, Jackson, King, Long, Mcdannald, Reeves, Reger(original spelling was Rueger), Rockhold, Rooks, and Stroud surnames. I am still looking and interested in exchanging information on these families as well as any related families.

Any information would be appreciated and I would be glad to share what I have.
