In Reply to: COFFIELD, Luke, Bertie Co, NC bef. 1840 by Judy of 177

Judy, found the following in the NC Genological Society Journal, Feb 1977, Miscellaneous Papers on Bertie County Revolutionary War.

"Coffield, Benjamin. Power of attorney, 1 August 1821, Jethro Coffield, Frederick Coffield, Benjamin Coffield & Christian Laseter, Hiers at Law of "Benjamin Coffield Late a Adjatant in the 6th Rege of the North Carolina Line in the Revolutionary War" appoint James Freman their attorney to receive a land warrant from the Secretary of State that is due said Benjamin Coffield, deceased, for his said military services. /s/ Jethro Coffield, Frederick Coffield, Benjamin Coffield, Christian (x) Laseter Witnesses: Henry (x) Todd, Barth Castellow (C.R. 10.911.1, Box 4-Rev War Papers)"

No mention of Benjamin's son Luke here, hope the other names mentioned prove useful.

Dan Grayson
