Leah (Mackenzie?) born abt. 1760 Essex County, VA?
I am researching my ancestors Benjamin and Leah Coffey.At on time I was told be a good source for Burke/Caldwell County, NC that Leah's maiden name may have been Mackenzie.
I am trying to follow this lead.Leah was born about 1760 and married Benjamin Coffey. They lived in Burke (became Caldwell) County.They are the parents of my ancestor Frances Coffey Deal and they also had a male (probably their son) living beside them...Cleveland Coffey.
The Coffey's were from Essex County, VA before the migrated to NC, so it may be the Leah and Benjamin met and married there in VA.
Any information at all of the Mackenzie name around these two areas they may have had a daughter born 1760 please let me know.
