Charles Mabry Coffee
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 3, 1875
Death: Apr. 4, 1943
Aransas Pass
San Patricio County
Texas, USA

Only Charles' death certificate and the 1880 census state that he was born in Virginia; all other census records indicate that he was born in Tennessee.

It is believed that Charles' parents were Austin Coffee (1840-1879) and Laura Ambrose (1846-1910). Several of the public trees on indicate that Charles' father was "bushwacked" and murdered while delivering a payroll for tanners. After his father was killed, Charles' mother, Laura, put her first six children in orphanages in Knoxville, Tennessee. Charles and brother Claude ended up in the same orphanage. Charles' sisters were adopted to several families in Chattanooga.

Charles married Mary Vincent Long on 14 Oct 1896 in Hamblen County, Tennessee. The couple had the following known children:
Lelia M. Coffee (b. 1897)
Albert Wesley Cofeee (1902 - 1959)
Loretta Erminie Coffee (1908 - 1978)
Charles Edward Coffee (1910 - 1991)
