Short Early History of Coffee County

Coffee County was formed on January 8, 1836, from parts of Franklin, Bedford, and Warren Counties. It was named after Gen. John Coffee, a close friend of Andrew Jackson and a hero of the War of 1812 and the Creek (Indian) War. Many in the Legislature wanted to name the new county "Webster", in honor of Jonathan Webster, the Speaker of the Senate and a resident of the Noah community. In the end the name Coffee won out by one vote.
