My Grama Stevens parents were Thomas Lewis Coakley (1868-1923) and Minnie Viola Hill Coakley (1873-?). My Grama, Georgia Mary Coakley Stevens (1905-1978), was their only daughter among seven living sons. Another son died young. Thomas was a farmer who owned his own farm. They lived in Kentucky their whole lives. They lived in Bulitt County when Grama Stevens was born in 1905. They both could read and write.
I think I have found the parents of Thomas Lewis, more on that later, but Minnie Viola’s parents are yet to be determined.
