Subject: [Q-R] Re: MOTTS and COFFINS
Date: Thu, 26 Feb 2004 22:35:50 -0500
For those of you, who wish to know about your MOTT & COFFIN Cousins, I have
posted some information from various sources. I don't know how else to
respond to a Query received this morning. My paper back book, which was
written about Lucretia (Coffin) Mott is an excellent resource and will tell
about her children and grandchildred, etc plus it has a a wonderful
Bibliography, especially about her ministry! Use it along with the other
resources, probably mostly from Nantucket Historical Association (NHA) for
Lucretia's ancestors. I have given a location for the earlier MOTT family
in New York State. James & Lucretia Mott lived in Philadelphia, and in
Chelten Hill, north of the City. The book listed below, does give
information on her burial.
Let's post queries & responses to Q-R mailing list, it is much easier that
way. I can not take a group of COFFIN, and certainly not MOTTs and find if
they belong to James & Lucretia (Coffin) Mott. I will send out a fes BCCs
with this post.

page 27 -- Picture:
Friends School & Meeting House at Nine Partners in
Lucretia was first a student, and later a teacher.
James Mott, Sr. was superintendent of the school;
was a school friend ol Lucretia's; so she visited the Mott
home in Mamaroneck,
on the north shore of Long Island Shore.
(This is to identify where the MOTTs lived.)
This should give you enough to perhaps trace or get started on genalogy of
your Motts and maybe Coffin(s) in your line or found in your database.
I wish to say that the COFFINs on DEL/MAR/VA Eastorn Shore and the
COFFIN/COFFINGs of Philadelphia, PA are not descendents of Tristram &
Dionis (STEVENS) COFFIN, the Immigrants from England..
