Sarah, consort of Martin Coffman, sen., departed this life, February 8th, 1852, in peace and prospect of a blessed immortality--aged 70 years, 4 months and 11 days. Mother Coffman emigrated to Fairfield county, O., from Rockingham county, Va, forty-five years since. She had been up to the time of her death, an unwavering professor of christianity forty-two years. Her house was always a pleasant retreat to the wearied ambassador of Christ. Her table always afforded the necessary refreshments to satiate his hunger, to which he was always welcomed. No doubt many of the Itinerants of Scioto Conference will endorse the above. She had been confined to her bed, before her death, seven weeks. The writer visited her several times during a quarterly meeting in her neighborhood. A(t) intervals she had serious conflicts of doubt, but faith would again triumph, and she would rejoice in God her Saviour, and manifest entire submission to her lot. The last two or three days of her stay, I learned she enjoyed great peace and tranquility of mind. She has left a companion bending beneath the weight of most four score years, to mourn, together with a number of children, and a large circle of classmates and acquaintances. Her remains were interred in the grave yard adjoining the Union Meeting-house, on Walnut circuit, where the appropriate discourse was delivered by the Rev. W. W. Davis. J. MONTGOMERY From: Mark Barnhart <[email protected]@aol.com> February 06, 2000 Sarah Whitehouse Coffman was born 28 Sept 1781 in Virginia according to her obituary and the inscription on her tombstone. I have seen the Gum family name in Fairfield Co, Ohio. Some of the Whitehouse (Whitehurst) family is buried in Hocking Twp cemetery about 1 1/2 miles from where Martin and Sarah Coffman are buried. March 27, 2002: I use Whitehouse because her marriage shows Sarah Whitehouse, daughter of John Whitehouse marrying Martin Coffman. There are Whitehurst's buried in the Schadel - Shadel Cemetery, Sec 21, Hocking Township, Fairfield County, Ohio. This cemetery is 1/4 mile South of Delmont. This cemetery is one and one-half miles southeast of East Union Cemetery as the "crow flies." This reference comes from "Cemeteries of Hocking Township, Fairfield County, Ohio," a publication of The Fairfield County Chapter of The Ohio Genealogical Society. Page 64.
