My name is John lawrence Allen ,now living in Austin. My grand mother was Dessia Lucille Coffey from Farmersville and her dad was Isaac Fountain Coffey also from Farmersville.( a grocer) My grandmother married Edmund Preston Allen around 1904 and my brother is named after my dad Robert Allen with his middle name Rike which is a family name that I haven't connected. the Allen family history goes thru Mckinney and farmersville and the family story is that one of my great grandfathers or great uncles was a train engineer who lived in McKinney and named the water stop to Dallas, Allen ( the town today).I have a photo of my great grandfather in front of this building in Farmersville from around 1885 that has a name on it that included Coffey. I wanted to connect the Coffey name to the Rike name and I know how it connects to the Allen family. My grandmother had sisters Faye and Tot and a bachelor brother who also worked the railroads, named Erna. The town of Farmersville is still amazingly cared for and I am proud to be a descendent from there. Also I am an architect and my dad told me a cousin was Zeb Rike an architect from Edinburg texas. I think he did the courthouse there. Any help is appreciated.thanks
