Following are Daniel and Hannah’s grandchildren. 
 
Rose Coger married Elijah Holmes
          Joshua Holmes
 
(Aunt Rose was a granny midwife and delivered many of the family babies.  She lived with several family members to help the women immediately after birth.  Aunt Rose delivered all of the following family members’ children:  Audrey Coger, Bessie Woodson, Maggie Golden and Carrie Weaver.   We know she delivered other babies; however, we cannot document the other families at this time.  Apparently Aunt Rose had more than one child.  While in slavery she and her husband would often run away.  Each time she was caught; as punishment, one of her children was sold.  I believe Aunt Rose was the family’s first “nurse”.

Zena (??Gerrie) Coger –
I believe Anne died at an early age.  Hannah stated in the 1900 US Federal Census that she gave birth to eleven (11) children; however in June of 1990 only ten (10) children were reported.  I have been unsuccessful in finding Zena(??Gerrie) in subsequent documents and all the family members I’ve interviewed do not remember her.
