Savannah was only three years old when Daniel Coffman, who died recently at that place, came with his father to live on a homestead in that locality. Having living continuously in Andrew county since 1844, Mr. Coffman died March 1, aged 88 years, and survived by fifty-four descendants. The Savannah Reporter speaks of this venerable man as one of the strong characters, inseparably associated with the building of Andrew county.
