Kauffman-Coffman Families of North America 1584 to 1937”[/pullquote]

There are SO MANY Abraham’s in the book that it has always felt overwhelming.

For several years I thought about making a list of every single one of them and then marking in some way whether or not I should research them further.

I procrastinate best by doing something I’d rather do than what I should do. The list below is the result of exactly that. I should have been doing something else!

This lists every Abraham, every Coffman — no matter what  the spelling.

Be sure to check my Which Abraham Coffman page as well.

Some of the Symbols and Abbreviation utilized by Mr. Kauffman:

A — Andrew Kauffman line.
A1 — Andrew Kauffman’s 1st child, 2nd generation.
Ac — Andrew Kauffman’s 12th child, 2nd generation.
A222 — Andrew Kauffman’s 2nd child of 2nd child of 2nd child or 4th generation.
B — Isaac Kauffman line.
C — Michael Kauffman line.
D — Martin Kauffman line.
E — Michale Kauffman and Barbara Holderman line.
d.y. — died young
d.inf. — died in infancy


Every Abraham listed in A genealogy and history of the Kauffman-Coffman families of North America, 1584 to 1937 compiled by Charles Fahs Kauffman, 1940

66 A4 Michael Kauffman (      –     1794) md. Catherine Immel. His will names his widow Gertraut. Possibly due to faulty spelling it is Gertrude Immel instead of Catherine. …

Michael Kauffman’s will is recorded in Book F, page 267. He left seven sons to survive and allots his plantation to his sons Christian and Benjamin who are to receive a part of some bottom land in York Co., His son Jacob is not to get anything except a part of the York Co., tract since he has received his share. This bottom land was situated in Chanceford Twp., York Co. His sons were Jacob, Isaac, Abraham, Andrew, Christian, John, and Benjamin. He was a Mennonite.

My Abraham migrated to Kentucky not long after 1802.
68 A41127 Abraham G. Kauffman (Oct. 28, 1843-July 3, 1920) md. Martha Metzger (Feb. 11, 1850-July 22, 1923). No

Banks recalled money at a time when little money could be realized for commodities in storage. Possibly an after-effect of the War of 1812. No

191-192 A5735 Abraham Sprenkle Kauffman (Nov. 9, 1835-Nov. 14, 1855 of pneumonia). The story runs that he was engaged to be married, and hastened after a day’s work to take a bath which chilled him too much so that he made a short call, returning home early due to not feeling well, and death followed a few days later. No, but the story of his impending marriage and the bath deserved some web page space.
192-193 A57386 Mary Virginia Kauffman (Feb. 25, 1877-    ) md. Jan. 30, 1900, Paul Sylvester Kauffman (Jan. 9, 1875-    ), son of Abraham and Salinda (Glatfelter Kauffman (see B727523); … No

No. Believe no connection but slight possibility that the Abraham mentioned ‘might’ be related.
459 B7241 Abraham Kauffman (Dec 21, 1806-July 26, 1883) md. Catherine Royer (     ), dau. of George Royer. Milling and distilling. [Fascinating information on this gentleman. Was called Abe.) No, lived in or around Bedford Co., Pa not in VA or KY.

471-472 B72a John Kauffman. Nothing is known further regarding him. A letter of Jacob Kauffman, ninth son of Andrew states, “After grandfather moved, one of the older boys went to Frederick, Md., and father never saw him after he left home. The boy went to live with an uncle.” Whether this is the above John or another brother we do not know. We know that his brother Abe married in Washington Co., Md., in 1819 to his second cousin Susanna Herr and letter may refer to Abraham,; but Abe is younger than Andrew. Extremely doubtul as this family was in Adams Co., PA (Reading Twp.) However, this section has tons of details if this is your family.

The Census of 1790 lists one Abraham Kauffman as resident of Bern Twp., Berks Co., with one male over 16 yrs.; 4 under 16 and three feamles. In 1821, one Abraham Kauffman died in Armaugh Twp., Mifflin Co., Pa., and willed his wife Fanny everything. His executors were son Abraham and Daniel Kreider. No. And more details in this secon on his father Chrsitian Kauffman (   -1764) md. Jan. 13, 1755, Margaretta Schnaebele, who died 1784. … Often people try to connect My Abraham with this one. But as you can see he died in 1821 in PA; mine died in 1848 in KY.
612 4 Abraham Kauffman was executor of father’s (Jacob) will. … No. Father Jacob (1823-1879).
612 4 Samuel Kauffman (Oct. 21, 1802, in Lancaster Co., Pa.-1867) md. Elizabeth Swartz, Trumbull Co., Ohio. Issue: Elizabeth, Tobias, Matthew, Mary Ann md. Andrew Hull, Maria, Jane, Samuel, Susanna, Abraham, Martha. No

623 7 Frederick Kauffman (1709-1789) md. Elizabeth ________. Sept. 21, 1742, a Fredrich Kauffman landed in Philadelphia from ship Frances and Mary. The tax roll for Donegal Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa., shows him in 1757 taxed 15 shillings. Tradition speaks of him coming from Switzerland, and serving in his community as a Mennonite minister. Issue: Abraham, John, and Barbara. No. But because the data fits and is often referenced as a ‘good probablity’, I am including the other details of these “Abraham’s” to save time in the future. One of the most telling reasons is that this book does outline the siblings and none of them FIT my family. However, I wouldn’t be surprised in the future to find them as “kissin’ cousins”.
623 7–1 Abraham Kauffman (1741-1802) md. Magdalena Shirk, dau. of Casper Sherick of Bethel Twp. He fell heir to the homestead which is now near Annville, Lebanon Co., Pa.

Tradition relates he came down the Monongahela River, settling temporarily at Zanesville, later going to Kentucky and finally at New Albany, Floyd Co., Ind. No. His parents were Henry & Catherine (?) Coffman who died in Muskingum Co., OH. Even though Abraham comes to KY, checking the other siblings on the next page none ended up in KY.
640 2–3 Abraham Brenneman Kauffman. No. Son of Hans or John Kauffman. Married “… a Catholic who influenced him and most of the children from the Mennonite faith.” The children are listed in the book and none match my Coffman lineage.

No, he was son of Jacob (1751-1824) & Elizabeth Rupp who lived in Pa. The homestead was also in Pa. So even though the dates are about right, the location is wrong and of course the date of death.
671 5 … In 1819 Christian Coffman petitioned the court of Mifflin Co. [PA) stating that his brother David Coffman lately died and left three children under 14 years named Samuel, Abraham, and Christian. … No. Father David is about same age of my Abraham. So his son could not possibly work. Plus they all were in PA and not VA.

In 1836 and 1838, Michael and wife, Margaret, sell to Abraham Coffman; … In 1837, Abraham Coffman sold to Michael Simon for $350 parts of three surveys… Apparently, Henry, Michael[,] Jesse, Solomon and Nevelle Coffman are brothers and sons of Michael. No. Well not the Abraham mentioned here. By 1837 my Abraham was well estabished in KY. If this is your family, then definitely look in this book, this page. Lots of info. But the timing is right — see entry on p. 706.
706 4 Abraham Coffman. Research. Nothing else is written next to his name. But the way it appears, even though Abraham is not listed above as a probably brother or son, he is listed here as Michael Coffman’s son along with Solomon, Nevelle, and Jesse. What if … what if the VA listed in the census for my Abraham was really West Virginia????
709 5 Abraham Coffman md. (?) Aug. 12, 1796, Margaret Hawn, or possibly June 20, 1797, Polly Weaver, or Mar. 23, 1806, Martha Gomer. These marriages took place in Shenandoah Co. He is said to have moved to Indiana. One Catherine Coffman dau. of Abe md. June 2, 1882, John Souder. Research, Research, Research. This is the Abraham so often thought to be my ancester. Now there was one that married a Polly Weaver. Is it the same one who married Margaret Hawn? Note the other info on this page:
