Architect Wm. J. Carpenter AIA painted a watercolor of the Coe Family Coat of Arms for his wife Agnes while in DeLand, Florida about 1930 . Mrs. Carpenter was  born Agnes Christina Coe in Brady’s Bend, Pennsylvania on May  31, 1874 ; they had married in Pittsburgh in 1900 and lived in Beaver  until about 1919 when they moved to Florida.  She was very interested in family genealogy and while tracing her family tree back to Robert Coe and Benjamin Coe (born 1629) she had encountered a rendering of the family Coat of Arms and requested her husband to make a painting of it for her. Her father was Samuel Wallace Coe (1845-1918 and mother Elizabeth b. 1852.  He was an oil field developer in Pennsylvania.  Frameable prints  are now available.  Read more….
