She spent on year and ahalf at Mt. Morris where our daughter, Lotta was born. In the spring of 1884we, with the entire Coffman family, moved to Colorado. The long trip was made with teams and wagons for there were no railroads built a cross the plains as yet. We found Denver an ill kept struggling village.
The trip was made in 34 days. We arrived in Nevada, Colo., July 4, 1864, where their son, Elbert, was born, after spending some time in the mountains the bought a farm in the valley where Longmont is now located. There our children Schuyler, Lura and Byron were born.
After many years they moved to Denver, Colo, from there they journeyed to Glendale where the men were engaged in mining.
Their three children all married and went to homes of their own.
In 1910 they went to Long Beach, Calif., to make their home with their son, Elbert. On February 8, 1926, her husband, Daniel S., passed away.
She then made her home with her daughter, Lura, in Los Angeles, where she passed away February 3, 1922.
