Augusta Georgia Denman, married Gabriel Hubbard Coe, Sept. 23, 1872, in Gonzales County, TX.
GABRIEL HUBBARD4 COE (Philip Alexander Haddox3, Rachel, Edward1) was born March 4, 1852, on the Coe plantation near Monthalia, Gonzales County, TX. The year he was born he received three horses in his father's will. He lived in Luling, TX, for a while after marriage and in the 1870s served as a San Antonio policeman whose beat was the old Buckhorn Saloon. He later moved back to Gonzales County and settled near Ottine. He became an outstanding stockman, partly due to his experience in driving cattle as a cowboy on the old Chisholm Trail. He made three of the hazardous trips during the 1870s, in company with Jim Towns, Jim Bailey Wells, Melvin T. Davis, Tom White and others, driving cattle overland to market.
He became a Christian while living in Luling and was afterward devoted to the Baptist church. A charter member of Slayden Baptist Church in Gonzales County, he was considered honorable and upright. He lived a full and successful life. He died November 13, 1935, in Gonzales County. Burial was at Greenwood Cemetery.
