In a future post I will be writing about the murder of my 2x great
grandfather, Leander Coffee, in 1894 in Greenup County, Kentucky. It's a
crazy story, and I have a bit more research to do before I write it up.
For now I have a photo to share - this came to me by way of Nancy
Wright Bays and John Paul Bays, who I was lucky enough to meet in a
great group on Facebook called Kentucky's Feuds.
(If you have ancestors from Kentucky, you definitely want to join that
group and have a look around - very interesting stuff there!)
This photo is of Leander Coffee's wife, Elizabeth Slater, and their
children - I believe this was taken a few years after his death. My
great grandfather is John Henry Coffee.
In the photo:
