I've research Dr Coolidge's descendants extensively but have not has of yet discovered any definitive information about his parents or if he is descended from John and Mary Coolidge of Watertown, MA. According to the 1880 Census, his father was born in MA and his mother in NY. See https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/74966644/f-w-coolidge
