Jonathan Bradley Coyier

My uncle Mike Howe thinks this fella is a direct ancestor of mine. Born in 1827 and died at 38 from wounds in the Civil War. Even further back, his dad, Peter Coyier, lived much longer:

Interesting to see actual information about my family as far back as someone born in the 1700’s. Peter was born in France, so I guess that confirms to me the clearly-French last name. I wonder if it was him who changed the pronunciation from the French (coy-yay) to how my family all says it today (coy-yer).
