Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Jerry Coffman and I am 70 years old and started trying to find realtives about a year ago, and with the help of others I have been able to find a lot of info and have made it back to th 1600s.
I am working on the Coffman/Kauffman side of the family and my sister Connie Kissee in Manhattan, Kansas is working on the Churchill side. I am also helping my wife with her side which is Bartlett, Cullen and Bowes.
I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

RE: Bartlett Family

I'm sorry to say your line is not in my husband's Bartlett tree. He is descended from Robert Bartlett and Mary Warren. Mary's father, Richard Warren, was a Mayflower passenger. My husband is descended from Mary & Robert's son Benjamin, who married Sarah Brewster. Sarah's father and grandfather were also Mayflower passengers. My husband is descended through Benjamin and Sarah Bartlett's son, Ichabod. Ichabod Bartlett married Elizabeth Waterman. Elizabeth Waterman's maternal grandmother is Abigail Warren, another daughter of Richard Warren mentioned above. I am in the process of gathering documentation so my husband can join the Mayflower Society. If you know how your tree connects to his, I would be glad to hear of it.

Wright family
My Wright ancestors were from Farquier County, Virginia to central Ohio in the 1810s--from there many did scatter west to Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri. But no connection that I'm aware of to your Wiley Benson Wright.

Bartlett family
Sorry, but I'm not related that I know of. I'll be glad to transfer any of the Bartletts I have added that are part of your wife's family to you.

Hi Jerry
none of those ring a bell. My 2nd great grand aunt Catherine Louise Mel de Fontenay married into the Bartlett family. She married Columbus Bartlett, brother of Governor Washington Bartlett whose parents were Cosam and Emma Bartlett (nee Melhado). The children of Columbus and Louise (as she was called) Bartlett were Ellen, Louise, Cosam, Francis, Louise, John Mel, Columbus, Isabelle, Marguerite and Sarah (died young) Bartlett. So that is how I am related to the Bartletts, but I did not trace the family of Columbus Bartlett since his side is really not related although I do know the children of Cosam and Emma Bartlett since they were from a famous family. A side note - the family burial plot of Washington Bartlett is in Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland. Don't know if that is any help - good luck

Hi Jerry
I have never been to this Blake cemetery. I listed the information for interments from the town records. Next spring or summer, I will try to find it and if their is anything still there I will take pictures. Thanks.

Hello Again Jerry,

The name I gave earlier was a relative who married into the Coffman family. Figured it would be a bit easier than looking through the large Coffman files. But basically my line of Coffman/Kauffman is as follows:

Martin KAUFFMAN Jr (1743 - 1805)
is your 5th great grandfather
Peter COFFMAN (1767 - 1818)
son of Martin KAUFFMAN Jr
Elias Strickler COFFMAN (1798 - 1864)
son of Peter COFFMAN
Eliza Jane COFFMAN (1838 - 1934)
daughter of Elias Strickler COFFMAN
Russell Curtis MANN (1869 - 1954)
son of Eliza Jane COFFMAN

Russell C Mann was my great-grandfather.
