Parents named as John and Mary Caffrey on baptism record. My grandmother (Richard's great-grandaughter) is a very close DNA relative of several Caffreys from Philadelphia and just across the river in New Jersey. His death certificate says parents are Richard Coffey and Mary Suitenham. Perhaps his father was named Richard John Coffey or John Richard Coffey though I tend to believe the baptism record as his parents were there...so my guess is his father was named Richard John Caffrey and he possibly went by John. Eventually their name was Americanized slightly to Coffey. Just a hunch.
