Death: Sep. 2, 1890

Charity Coffin daughter of John and Sarah Coats, was born December 18, 1813, died September 2, 1890, age 76 yrs, 10 mos and 14 days.
She was born near Covington, Ohio, but in early childhood her parents removed to Randolph county, and in this county she was married to Stephen Coffin in February 2, 1832 and to whom were born 17 children, eight of whom survive her. She was left a widow in 1860 and after several years removed to Winchester where at the time of her death she resided with her daughter, Mrs. J. W. Pickett.
She was reared under the influence of Friends and after the church was established here she joined and was always faithful in attendance and followed in her Master's footsteps in daily life, always ready to assist the suffering or unfortunate, especially she tried to teach children the importance of the commandant "Honor thy Father and thy Mother," often saying parents did not always teach this observance as they should.
During her last illness her Christian patience never wavered, and when the summons came very unexpectedly she was ready, saying, "This is death" when her daughters could not realize it, hoping she would be better soon, she said, "I am calm but I am dying," and her last words were, "Lord take me and give me a peaceful reception." Then a radient look on her face as if touched with a ray of glory from the opening gates of the Celestial City and the loving look in the faces of her weeping daughters closed her eyes to open them in joy of a glad reunion on the other side.
She left four brothers and one sister, while her descendants number 104, 49 grandchildren, 37 great grandchildren and one great great grandchild.
Funeral services were conducted by Bros. W. C. Brown and Wooten, and she was laid to rest by the side of her husband and children at White River.
