Hi Irma,

Since his burial place is right in your neighborhood, I'll add to the rather generic note I just made on his page. There's enough information between the (sparse) entry in Cullum's Register and the (fuller) AOG obituary, to put together a little bio on the Find-a‑Grave page.

The entry in Cullum is at
and if you can't find the AOG obit, just holler, and I'll put it up as well: my pages for some reason are much easier to find.

Kind regards,
Bill Thayer

Hi Irma,

Racism was rampant in 1859, its 2014 and nobody will mind that you didn't include it.

Murdock Info

Thanks for your information on Frances Conkling Murdock. Will definitely update the memorial.

I am descended from Saba Murdock, daughter of William 2d, William, and John & Frances. Interested in whatever information you may have to share.

Saba Murdock married the shipbuilder Augustus Jones, so they were my g-g-g grandparents.

David Gardiner Coit
Your message:
Marriage and Death Notices From the Charleston Observer 1827 - 1845 Brent Holcomb, C.A.L.S.

Died at the Cataraet Hotel, Niagara Falls, on Wednesday, 26th July 1837, David G. Coit, Esq., of Marlborough District, S. C., aged 36 years…a native of New London, Conn., but for the last 16 years had resided in S. C…and elder in the Presbyterian Church.…
This is Dr. David Gardiner Coit, Sr. 1800-1837, son of David Coit and Elizabeth Caulkins there in New London. You have just solved a puzzle. I have a wonderful researcher in SC who has been helping me find all the Coits there. Dr. David Gardiner Coit Sr is the one we couldn't find, which didn't make sense. So he died in Niagara Falls? Now I have to wonder where he is buried. Did they transport him to New London? Hmmmm.

I have read through several of those books on Google Books. One, "The Memoirs of Daniel Lathrop Coit 1754-1833" makes for delightful reading. His trip to Europe to study industrial methods that he could bring back to CT, befriending both Benjamin Franklin and Lafayette, seeing the first balloon flight in Paris from the Tuileries. He even tried to find Coit relations in England and was invited several times by a charming Dr. Coit in London, although they couldn't make a family connection. Plus quite oddly, his travel companion for the trip over was a Fanning from Norwich. In piecing together bits of information, I realized that the husband of one of my oldest friends, an Italian countess who married a Texas oilman named Fanning, was actually a descendant of that travel companion and that we were distant cousins (this discovered after knowing him for 25 years). Last person on earth to whom I would have thought I was related.

One blessing in my research is that the Coits were all prolific writers. Seems every branch of the family has treasure troves of old letters and papers (I inherited my grandfather's). I've big boxes of ancient letters I've yet to go all the way through. One of the things that has surprised me the most is how mobile all of these people were in the 1700s and 1800s. Even Mehetabel Chandler Coit in the early 1700s as an older woman, travels 2-3 days to a family wedding. First by horseback, then canoe, then walking. Stopping over with Leffingwells and Lathrops. Concerned about Indians. Packing her silk stockings and frock for the wedding so she can be properly attired. What a grandmother to have. But the whole bunch thought nothing of hopping aboard ship and heading off for wherever.

Irma, I really appreciate all of your efforts to assist me in this family search. For me, it's better than a mystery novel. Thank you.

Curious, with which families are you connected?

RE: Frances Taber Allen
Irma, thanks for confirming what I thought. I just can't find Frances Taber Coit after James dies. I checked other family trees on Ancestry and they were a hot mess.

I'm pretty sure the James Coit who is buried in Cheraw is the youngest son of Dr. Thomas Coit and Mary Gardiner Coit there in New London. Think he went to Cheraw before 1820, then asked his 2 nephews from my direct line to join him there. The birth date from Barbour jibes with the birthdate on his tomb. And it makes sense. I need to go back into all my Coit grandfather's papers and journals to see if he mentions that.

But whatever happened to Frances L. Taber and Jonathan? BTW, I had done the search in Ancestry and was pretty sure of the Pardon Taber-Amy Coit parentage, but the bit about Jonathan graduating from Yale did not come up. Thank you for all that.

Mary & Thomas Coit Transfers
Irma, that was a surprise. Especially after you had done so much work helping update them. Thank you ever so much for these transfers and for your promptness and the great job you do.

You know, I just came online three days ago to post some memorials, then I thought I would clean-up an ancestor's memorial or two, and now it's been three long days and it seems I'm further behind than I was before. At least 10 screens open on the computer, working back and forth. But when you're on a roll with the research, it's hard to walk away.

Your profile
Just read your profile. Fascinated with your idea of the mirror for photographs.

And yes, like you I believe in paying back to FindaGrave. First, it is a wonderful resource. And second it is a way to honor those who have gone before us. I've entered memorials for many strangers in order to thank those dedicated volunteers who have found my ancestors.

Good luck to you and Happy New Year.

RE: Ellen Phebe Coit #84107956
Thank you for your quick response, Irma. Sounds like you have a huge job in front of you.

Yes, I would be interested in the Caulkins/Calkins you find. Also the Booths. I will keep an eye on your work. I have quite a bit of information on my lines. They ended up all over the country.

Just trying to find all my Coits is a massive job. I really appreciate what you are doing.

My best to you,
