    4. [S142] Genealogy of the Coffinberry Family: Descendants of George Lewis Coffinberry (1760-1851) Revolutionary War Soldier, compiled by Mrs. Beatrice Berman Scott b. 1893, (Name: published 1927;), pages 8-11.
      [George Lewis Coffinberry] married December 5, 1786, at Martinsburg, West Virginia. Married Miss Elizabeth (Klein) Little, who was born near Alsace Loraine about 1769. Elizabeth Little believed herself to be a descendant of royalty. She was gifted with language and from her pen came forth at command prose and poetry, and her writings, if they had been cared for and published, most certainly would have made her known as a lady of letters in the western world.
      An item of interest to those of this present generation was the fact that in the days of Elizabeth Little, false teeth or plates were unknown and so she made her own teeth, by taking a cow’s horn and soaking it in water until flexible, then carefully shaping it to her mouth and by filing teeth in it, made a very serviceable set of lower and upper teeth. The only fault with these kind of teeth was the fact that they wore out too soon and the same performance had to be gone through with again.
      Elizabeth Little had a brother that we know of. A Mrs. Cope of Chattanooga, Tennessee, claims to be a descendant of this brother.

      ...

      ELIZABETH LITTLE COFFINBERRY, wife of George Lewis Coffinberry, was a blonde with blue eyes. Her hair kept its golden tinge until she was quite an old lady. Her father was George Kline (Little) and her mother was Elizabeth Truggat. They were both born in Strasburg, in Alsace, early in the eighteenth century, and were married there. They came to the town of Chambersburg in the colony of Penn, where they both died within six months after their settlement, leaving George Little, 2 years old, and Elizabeth, 6 months old.
      These children were taken to Martinsburg, Va., by their mother’s sister, who reared them and where George was married to Caroline Roush, and Elizabeth to George Lewis Coffinberry. The name of her family was originally Kline, but was later changed to Little. The word Kline means “little” in the German language. Elizabeth Little Coffinberry always told her children that some day they would come into a great heritage through her people, but just what this was I do not know.
