Question: I was planning a trip to Martha's Vineyard for later this month. Can you advise me as to how I can find a gravestone from 1711 for my ancestor John Coffin?
Answer: The early cemeteries have long been online to search before www.findagrave.com was even available. The Tower Hill Cemetery in Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard is where his gravestone still stands. For a direct link to his gravestone go online to: http://history.vineyard.net/cemetery/th/th29.htm Incidentally he was the brother of my ancestor, and the son of Tristram and Dionis (Stevens) Coffin.
