"Revolutionary War Service

1) Benjamin Coffey first served the Revolutionary cause for five months from Burke County, NC in 1776. He volunteered and was sent to the frontier, scouting and helping to build Crider's Fort because of "mischief being done by the Cherokee Indians."

2) He married Polly Hayes and moved over to Wilkes County where in 1780 he volunteered again.

3) Benjamin Coffey was at the Battle of Kings Mountain as were several of his kinfolk. He did not actually do any fighting in this battle. As a result of losing his horse the evening before, he had to join the foot soldiers; the fighting was over by the time the foot soldiers got there. He was sent to guard the prisoners on the march to Moravian Town, whereby he developed "pains in his ankles." He was furloughed home for the duration of the war.

This information was provided by Bennie Coffey Loftin."

This document includes his physical description and place of birth as well as his unit and dates of service. "Union privates were paid $13 per month until after the final raise of 20 June '64, when they got $16."

The military record of Benjamin F. Davenport is well documented in his application for a Civil War Pension, which was drawn after his death by his third wife, Mary D. Davis. His birthplace of Lancashire, England was also written on a scrap of paper which my father, Roy Elmer Thomas, said was all his mother, Addie Davenport, told him about his grandfather B. F. Davenport's origins.

Jackson County, Indiana History Center web site:

"'The Jackson (IN) Union,' then edited by William Frysinger, in its issue of April 18, 1861 reported:

'A large meeting of the citizens of Jackson County, irrespective of party, was held in the court house in Brownstown on Tuesday evening, to take into consideration the present critical condition of our country. Hon. John F. Carr was called to the chair, and W. T. Dobbs and Thomas Robertson chosen secretaries. After a few brief explanatory remarks, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted: RESOLVED, That we will, with all the means in our power, maintain the Government of the United States, and protect its flag. RESOLVED, That we will form a company of volunteers in this county to meet the requisition of the President of the United States upon the governors of the several States. After this, the meeting was addressed by Maj. J. J. Cummins, Jason B. Brown, Thomas B. Tanner, D. H. Long and S. W. Holmes. The meeting then adjourned, to meet on Saturday following.

At a Union meeting held in Woodmansee's Hall in the town of Seymour, Jackson County, on the 16th of April, 1861, J. L.Ford was chosen president; Samuel Smith, Sr., and S. L. Beal, vice-presidents; W. E. Marshall and G. Woodmansee, secretaries. On motion of F. A. Jones a committee was appointed by the chair to draft resolutions expressive of the sense of the meeting. F. A. Jones, S. L. Ewing and John Allen being appointed said committee, reported the following: WHEREAS, The flag of our Union has been desecrated by those in armed rebellion against the Government of the United States; and WHEREAS, All loyal citizens have been called upon to vindicate the national honor; therefore, RESOLVED, That we, as loyal citizens of Jackson County, without distinction of party, pledge to the support of the Government our resolved, That, sink or swim, live or die, survive or perish, we are for the Union and the Constitution, now and forever.'"
