Book Description

Excerpt from Annals of the Sinnott, Rogers, Coffin, Corlies, Reeves, Bodine and Allied FamiliesI Have gleaned from the past, here a little and there a little, these memorials of my ancestors, in the hope that their descendants may emulate their simple, blameless lives.In the compilation thereof I have been materially assisted by many to whom acknowledgment has been made under the respective families in which help has been rendered, but I am further indebted to Mr. Charles H. Engle, clerk of the Mount Holly Meeting of Friends, Mr. Leander Rogers, Miss Edith Rogers, Mrs. William C. Lawrence, the Rev. William White Hance, my grand-uncles, Edward Winslow Coffin and John Hammond Coffin, and Mrs. John Richard Pine Coffin, of Portledge, Devonshire, England, and especially to my friend. Miss May Atherton Leach, who first inspired me with a love of genealogy, and who has given me unsparingly from her store of historical and genealogical knowledge; to all of whom, as well as those who, for the moment, I may have overlooked, I extend my sincere thanks.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
