My name is Jason Coffey and i'm from Athens Tennesse. I have been able to trace my family roots back to Joseph A Coffey of NC. My goal is to find out what part of Ireland the family came from but I haven't been able to find anything past Joseph Coffey. Do you think you could help me out?

I found my Coffey roots in Kiltevan, County Roscommon. There also seems to be a lot of Coffeys in County Cork. Good luck with your searching.

I'm attaching a link to a site about the Coffeys that uses DNA analysis to trace their origins. There is information about the origin of some of the groups of Coffeys that might answer your question.

I'm a Coffey and was told my family came from Westmeath, Ireland. My great grandfather moved to Cleburne County, AL from TN. He was born in 1864 and his name is William Patterson Coffey. I sure wish I could find out about his parents or siblings. Any info. would be great.
