He had been ill for about a week and was in the hospital with some difficulty with one foot which resulted in his death. Mr. Coffey enlisted in Company B, 17th Vt. Regt., and was mustered out with his regiment July 14, 1865. He served in all the battles of his regiment which, though the last of the Vermont regiments, saw most severe service.
