Deaths of Cora E and J G Coffin 15 May 1921
Posted by: Carol Crockett (ID *****6334) Date: May 08, 2012 at 00:15:37

My grandfather's double cousin Grace Maud Crockett was married to a man by the name of J G Coffin (I have never found him listed with any name other than the initials J G) Grace and J G apparently divorced between 1910 and 1914 when he remarried Cora E (Young) Gilkerson.

I just discovered in the New Hampshire vital records on the LDS website, that Cora and J G Coffin both drowned on 15 May 1921 when the car in which they were riding went off the road into the water. Does anyone remember hearing about this? It apparently occurred in Farmington. Does anyone know which lake or river was involved?

I am hoping that someone can help me find a newspaper obituary if there was one, and any information on gravestones. According to the death records, they were buried in the "Rochester Cemetery" on 18 May 1921, but I haven't been able to locate cemetery records for them.

Thank you.
