Hello everyone! I'm looking for any info on Michael Coffee, b.1814 in Ireland, went to Canada as a young adult or with his family. Got married, most likely in Canada, to Mary, had a daughter named Julie/Julia in Canada around 1834. At some point was in the Westvliet/West Troy/Troy area of New York approx. 1850 or ealier. And at some point later may have been in Holyoke, MA. Daughter Julie married John Collopy and lived in Holyoke and eventually died there in 1889. Any clues? Thanks,
Pam

Hi I am related to a Coffee/Coffey family who emigrated from Ireland to Canada/New York about the time yours did. As there were so few Coffee's in New York State at the time there is some likelihood they were connected.

Do you know anything more about your Michael Coffee?? For example where in Ireland he was born; any contemporary relatives names; the names of his parents.

My family "starts" with Dennis & Catherine O'Connor Coffee in Ireland around 1790 and they had 3 sons that I know of Charles, Dennis & Patrick all of whom migrated to the US (NY) through Canada.

Anyway here's hoping there is a connection because that side of the family basically is dead-ended in the US.

I wish I had more information about this Michael Coffee, the possible connection in Ireland may be Co. Limerick. No one that I'm aware of has done any genealogy on this part of my family and I will do my best to reverse the deadend here. If you you can think of anuthing else let me know. Other lines I'm working on are Norton's also from Ireland, Co. Kildare. They are a bit of a deadend also, I've made some progress. It motivates me when I see that a particular family line start to die out, that's the last thing I want to happen, so sad. Stay in touch and thanks.

Hi Claire,
Sorry for delay in replies. My Michael Coffey did go to Canada and had most of his family there before moving to Watervleit, NY. His wife is Mary Coning/Kounin. Do you have more information? One of his daughters was Julie who married John Collopy and moved to Mass. If you don't have this information let me know. I have most of the family unit without spouses.

Take care,
Pam
