Note for: Daniel Coe, ABT 1700 -
From Carl Robert Coe, manager of the Rootsweb "Coe" page, February 22,
Daniel Coe was born about 1700 in Sussex County, DE, son of Timothy II.
His mother's maiden name is unclear. Some report that she was Hannah
Tull, but I've seen nothing to verify this. In his will, Timothy Coe II
appointed "my dear wife to be Executor of this my Last Will and
Testament." In a question concerning a deed, John Truitt of All Hollows
in Somerset County, MD, "was to answer unto Nicholas Green & Jemima, his
wife, executors of the will of Timothy Coe." From this, one would gather
that his wife was Jemima who married (2) Nicholas Green.
Daniel Coe (1) Rebecca Avery and (2) Lydia Hudson. He and Rebecca Avery
had three sons: John Coe, b. 1744; Avery Coe, b. 1746; Asa Coe, b.
1748. Avery Coe is my ancestor.

More, dated 9/28/98:
Daniel Coe lived for a while in Somerset County, MD, with Avery Morgan.
On Jan. 30, 1732, Morgan acted as attorney on Daniel Coe's behalf for
land which he owned in Accomack County, VA--his portion of the plantation
known as "Coe's Out Neck," first settled by his grandfather Timothy Coe
in 1670. Timothy Coe, as you recall, was born in England in 1631 and
immigrated to Northhampton County, VA, in 1652.
In Somerset County, Morgan lived on land known as "Goshen," owned by
Captain William Fassitt. Elizabeth Bethard, who "did commit fornication
with a certain Daniel Coe," and in June 1736 was found guilty "and to
beget then and there a Bastard Child." "Thereupon a certain William
Fassitt of Somerset County...undertakes for the said Elizabeth Beddard
and acknowledges himself indebted unto his Lordship proprietary in five
Daniel Coe's sister Mary married Avery Morgan's brother John. John and
Mary (Coe) Morgan owned two farms in Worchester County. The first, known
as "Morgan's Industry," was patented in 1758 as a tract of 34 acres. The
second, known as "Brush Ridge," a 50-acre tract patented in 1759, was
sold to Thomas Evans, March 8, 1770.
It is interesting that Daniel Coe Bethard lived in the same area as the
Coes in Buckingham Hundred. I wonder if the families acknowledged
one-another as relatives. (NOTE: I don't know if Mr. Coe is saying that
Daniel Coe Bethard is the bastard child of Elizabeth Bethard or not, but
that seems to be the implication.)
More, dated 9/14/98:
Elizabeth Bethard has always been an interesting mystery. It is clear
that she and Daniel Coe produced a child. On December 29, 1735, Daniel
Coe was tried in Somerset County, MD, for carnal knowledge with her. The
trial continued for some time and he was eventually found guilty and
ordered to pay thirty pounds "whatsoever for every Reason of the birth
maintenance Nourishing and Bringing up the said Child..."
On June 15, 1736, Elizabeth Bethard was put on trial for committing
fornication with Daniel Coe "and did permit the same Daniel Coe then and
to have carnal knowledge of her Body and to beget then and there a
Bastard Child." She was fined thirty shillings and indentured to William
Fassett. My great grandfather Rouce Coe was later named for Fassett's
son Rouce Fassett.
