Charles Franklin COFFEE

Greenwood Cemetery
Dawes County,

The following information comes from an article by George Ledbetter in the Chadron Record newspaper, Chadron, Nebraska: the 2012-Fur-Trade-Days Supplement.
Charles Coffee, a native of Missouri, served in the Confederate army as a youth, and later moved to Texas, where he hired on to trail a huge herd of cattle to Kearney. Seeing the opportunity in ranching, he and his brother established a huge place on open range in northwest Nebraska. He later expanded his interest to banking through a deal with pioneer banker Bartlett Richards, eventually won a post in the state legislature and was instrumental in the Normal School located in Chadron.
(Also see the Coffee family gravestone.)
