My grandmother's name is Coday - who was into geanology. I have a copy of a letter dated 1-9-82 from Sister Regina Coday. She was writing to my grandmother to see if they were related. I don't believe so. In her letter she provided the following information.
Regina Coday born 1944
Father James Raymond Coday born 1914
Grandfather James Francis Coday born 1822
However, I thought it might be a great addition to the right Coday family tree and would be willing to forward copies of letter. There are actually a few of them.
