Surnames: Coffee
My great-great grandmother's name was Cynthia Ann Coffee Tripp. All I know is that she was born in Arkansas, married William Jesse Tripp (W.J.) on February 14,1866 in Scott County, Arkansas. They moved to Oklahoma in 1896 and settled in Wynnewood, Oklahoma. W.J. and Cynthia are both buried in Wynnewood. We have hit a wall due to the fact that the family does not know any of her sibling's names or her parents.

Surnames: Coffee-Coffey
This is probably the line of Coffee's that moved into Oklahoma and then faded away into history. I have never found where this group originated from or where they went. I suspect their name may have been Coffey before 1810 and were in Kentucky in the latter part of the 18th century. Many of the these Coffey's originated in North Carolina and in the early ninteenth century, some changed their names to Coffee. One gentleman of the Coffey line from North Carolina was Holland Coffee(y), the famous Red River trader. At the age of 10, after Holland Coffey's parents died in Kentucky, Holland changed his name to Coffee and moved to McMinnville Tennessee to live with his uncle, Jesse Coffee. Holland moved to Indian Territory (Oklahoma) and later married Sophia Suttenfield-Auginbaugh and they had no children. In 1846, Holland Coffee was killed by Charles Galloway, who was the husband of Holland Coffee's niece. The fight in 1846 between Galloway and Coffee was over a remark made about Sophia's affair with Sam Houston following the Battle of San Jacinto in 1836. Sophia Suttenfield-Auginbaugh-Coffee-Butts-Porter remarried twice after Holland was killed and she died in 1897. This Coffey-Coffee line is not in any way related to my Coffee line from Stafford and Prince Edward County Virginia at least as far back as 1730.

William Jesse Tripp was a cousin, albeit removed, of mine. I notice he has a daughter, Bettie Tripp (my name!). I found them on the 1910 and 1920 census records. Cynthia's name is spelled with an S on one of them. I'll keep looking and let you know what I find.

Cynthia Ann Coffee (“Granny”) was my paternal grandmother. (My father was Walter Alexander Tripp (d. 1986).) I visited her almost every summer until her death in 1954. She was a sweet-natured, teeny-tiny woman. She reputedly smoked a pipe, but I never saw her use one. She did dip snuff. I remember being told her parents died in Arkansas when she was child and she was adopted by the Coffees. I remember hearing nothing about her mother, but her father was reputedly thrown from a horse, dying as a result. I could be completely wrong about this of course, but that’s what I recall being told.
