Starling Timothy Coffee was the son of Elijah and Mary Polly (Hull) Coffey. He was married to Nancy Tyler Cannon in Rabun County, Georgia in 1849. It is not known when they left Rabun County but in 1860 Census, they were listed in Forsyth County and their children Rowena, 9; George, 7; Russell, 6; Columbus, 4; Dennis, 2; Patrick, 12 months.

In July 1862 Starling volunteered for service in the Confederate Army in Atlanta and served three years in Capt. Whaley's Company, Lawton's Regiment, Forrest's Brigade (Calvalry). He was wounded in the arm during a skirmish in one of Gen. Forrst's raids on Mill Creek in Tenn. On Dec. 28, 1898 he applied for a soldier's pension in Gordon County, and stated that because of this injury his arm was practically useless. The ball entered the right elbow, lodged in the joint and was never removed.

Starling Coffee farmed and sold wrought-iron ranges, and was apparently successful. He traveled about the country, as far away as Texas. We don't know when they moved to Gordon County to reside permanently but it must have been by the early or middle 1870's.

Their children include those listed below and also:
Colombus Washington Coffee
Russell N. Coffee (1855-1924)
Dennis Coffee (1858-unknown)
Dewitt Coffee, 1858-unknown)
Patrick S. Coffey (1860-unknown)
Tipton Tyler Coffee (1864-1936)
