I am researching the Coe family of Cumberland County, KY. just north over the line from Clay county. I am interested in the family as a whole and the impact of this multi-racial clan on the tri-county area of Monroe and Cumberland counties KY, and Clay County, TN.

Coe was also the postmaster surname in Tompkinsville, KY, Monroe County. There is extensive information on Coe in Monroe County.

I have come across some research on the Coe Family. Although there is always some piece of the puzzle I am still looking for. Can you give me the source where the Monroe County information is from? I am directly related to Malinda Coe Short. She was the daughter of John and Nancy (Scott) Coe. I would like to find out where she is buried. Thank you, Sheri

Hi Sheri: There is a huge amount of information written about your family in the book "The Saga of Coe Ridge" by William Lynwood Montell. I am a descendant of John Coe as well. The Short family had an infamous folk personality named George "Beanie" Short who was a Confederate terrorist in the Civil War. This book is fascinating. Mr. Montell also did a video which is in the possession of a library in Arkansas ( I think that is where I found it). My grandmother left me a lot of stuff on our Coe side of the family. The whole Coe/Short story is fascinating. It includes buried treasure in Moss Kentucky that has never been found. I can tell you more if you are interested. Tim

My wife descends from Charles Coe [b: ca1788] and Lucinda (Lovell). Their grandson, William Lovell Stone [1859-1928], married Eva Lina (Williams) [1865-1935].

The Williams family was another "colorful" group from Jackson/Clay Co. that was documented by Lynwood Montell in the "Saga of Coe Ridge" as well as "Clure and Joe Williams - Legend and Blues Ballad," Journal of American Folklore, Vol 81, No 322, Oct-Dec 1968.

I have two Charles Coes. Charles 1788 and Charles Edgar 1885. I don't have a spouse for the 1788 Charles. Did they have a daughter named Jemina?
I think he is the Charlie mentioned in "Saga of Coe Ridge."
Are your Wiliams the ones that ran with they Taylors? Here is my email I would like to correspond with you directly. pumalee@peoplepc.com
