Coffelt/Kauffelt :: Genealogy

Query by joyce70

Hello, I know there are a number of Coffelt/Kauffelt family doing research on this old family. I have information back to Germany 1500's that I would be delighted to share. My query is to locate the correct Daniel Coffelt in my family line. My great-grandfather was Elijah Coffelt, son of Daniel Coffelt and Peggy Bivens. Elijah was born in Indiana, lived there until moving to Iowa where he lived out is life. His granddaughter Laura was my grandmother who lived to be 102. Some publication's show that Elijah's father came from Tennessee but my Grandmother never felt that was correct. She expressed that the family was proud of the fact that grandfather Elijah's father Daniel was the son of a revolutionary soldier. The connection to a soldier would be through Nicholas Kauffelt who had a son Daniel. I am having difficulty in showing that the Daniel of Elijah is the Daniel son of Nicholas. There appear to be so many Daniels all about. Help please.
