By Phil Coffey
I'm attaching a photo of my G.G.Grandmother, Delilah Hasa Jane Keltner Coomer(1834-1922),
She married William Riley Coomer when she was 14.
Delilah was born and raised on a farm behind Pleasant Ridge United Methodist Church (1915 Keltnertown Road) near Keltner, KY.
When she was near death Aunt Margie Coffey said that she insisted that someone bring her some water from the spring on her "Homeplace" because she said it was the sweetest water she had ever tasted.
I am a descendant of William Riley and Delilah's son Mack. He married Elizabeth Francis ("Fannie") Munday". Mack and Fannie's daughter Ina River Coomer Coffey was my grandmother.
When Great Grandmother "Fannie" died in 1957 she had eight surviving children, 60 grandchildren, 192 great grandchildren and 18 great great grandchildren. - PHIL COFFEY
