I am noticing that you are speaking of Coffey's from the Worcester, Ma - Woonsocket, RI area. My great great Grandfather Thomas Coffee born about 1833 in Ireland but emigrated at some point to Worcester County, Mass. He lived in Uxbridge, MA. There he married Ellen Carney in about 1856. They had five children together however Thomas died trying to help his wife in labor and the baby that was born died a little while later of the croup. His name was William. Their children were Thomas, Patrick, Esther (Later married a Gilmore in Woonsocket, RI) and John. After Thomas died Ellen moved with the children to Holyoke, MA. By 1890 they were living in Woonsocket, RI. John Coffey is my great grandfather. It is my guess that Thomas had other family in the Worcester and Woonsocket, RI area. I am so hoping to find those relatives. Plus I am hoping someone knows where he came from in Ireland. Ellen died in Woonsocket in 1893. It just seems too coincidental that there were these Coffey's all born within a few years of each other living in this area. I have done the DNA Testing through Ancestry. Hopefully maybe you have and we can see if there is a match. Mary
