Correction in published VRs for Bulah COFFIN, d. 1812 in Edgartown

Posted: 6 Mar 2013 12:42PM GMT
Classification: Query
Thanks to the diligence of a lady who is working on indexing the Edgartown VRs, an error was found in the published records.
Incorrect:
COFFIN, Bulah, d. Enoch Esq., Jan. 19, 1812, a. 86. CR1 [[d. Enoch Jr. and Jane (Claghorn) Whellen], old age. PR]

Actually, it is the information from the Private Record that is incorrect. Bulah was the younger sister of Enoch Jr. She was born in 1726 to Enoch and Beulah (Eddy). Enoch Sr. and Beulah Eddy were married in Nantucket in 1700. I could not find a birth for Beulah Eddy. My best guess is that she was born in Swansea. There were 3 EDDY couples having children there in the correct time frame. If anyone has researched this particular line and knows Beulah's parents' names, I'd like to have that information for my indexing.
