Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Arizona and have been interested in genealogy and family history for many years. I have been using Find A Grave for quite while and found it especially helpful on a research trip I took to Michigan in April 2008. That trip really got me thinking - and knowing that all my tombstone pictures will get tossed after I die - I decided to start participating!

I am contributing in hopes of helping others who may be searching for names in their family tree. If you have additional information or corrections - please contact me. If I have made a memorial for your direct relative and you'd like it transfered to you, just ask.

Photo for Densie Corwin
Hi, Denise,

Thank you so very much for your time and effort in taking and posting a photo of Densie's marker. I really appreciate it - and knowing that, on her marker, her name is spelled Densie. I hadn't seen that name before, and was wondering if it might be a typo.

Thanks, again, for the photo and for all you do on Find-a-Grave.

Take care.

Hepzebeth Barney Coffin (1737-1769), #180943059 & Lydia Gardner (1744-1778), #180946102
You added these relatively new interments for 1st/2nd wives of William Coffin (1730-1816) but 1st assuredly was born/died in Nantucket, where all his children by 2nd wife Lydia Gardner (1774-1778) were also born as per Nantucket Vital Records and where she too probably died. William first appears outside Nantucket in 1784 - see Mihalcik, Barbara, "Quaker Removal Records: Nine Partners Monthly Meetings":

1) "Cert to Easton 1-14-1784, a lad, to live with step-father, William Coffin"; note refers to step-son Robert Moores (my 5th gr uncle).

2) "Robert Moors, a lad to live with his Stepfather, William Coffin, to Saratoga from Ninepartners, 14 of 1m, 1784."

Thus he likely married his 3rd wife, Elisabeth Macy, in Milbrook before 20 Mar 1784; date when references to the disposition of her sons by her previous marriage (Alexander Moores) in Nine Partners Monthly Meeting records.

The Nine Partners Patent (and its Monthly Meeting; Millbrook, Dutchess Co., NY) was a heavily frequented locale for those fleeing the Nantucket embargo during the Revolution. Milbrook Meeting records provide proof & clear timeline for those eventually moving further west. As you likely know, the earliest Quakers settled in Easton around 1775 -- many of them coming from Dartmouth, Mass. (near New Bedford) and Nantucket. Many were early sea captains whose livelihoods were upended by the British just prior to the Revolution, so they came inland and turned to farming the land.

If you have documentation that counters all this regarding the first two wives of William Coffin, or 3rd for that matter (my 5x ggm), please let me know. As per my prior note, is there a cemetery Book of Easton interments?

Many thanks, Philip in NYC

RE: Albert Coffin (1766-1819), Mary Fay (1770-1849) & Children | Easton Rural Cemetery; Easton, NY
Yes, shared graves for parents, cenotaph for children; son Thomas Coffin edit submitted (thanks for lead). You mention the "Easton Cemetery Book." You found that on site or on line? My interest is in Albert's parents, but specifically his stepmother (father's third/last wife), Elisabeth Macy (1736-1790), my 5x ggm purportedly in Easton Cemetery with William Coffin (still with photo request). First husband was Alexander Moores (1735-1772). If interment is cited anywhere, would love to know about it.

Thanks, Philip in NYC
