Biography

The birth of Abigail Starbuck,[1][2] daughter of Edward Starbuck and Catherine Reynolds, and wife of Peter Coffin, is shown in the Nantucket records, but no birth year is given, and it isn't even clear that she was born in Nantucket.[3] Given that her husband was born in 1631 and they had their first child in 1657[4], Abigail was probably born between 1630 and 1640.Watt-266 19:15, 12 May 2016 (EDT)

The marriage date of Peter Coffin and Abigail Starbuck is shown as occurring between 1655 and 1657.[5]

Peter and Abigail had at least the following children:[4]

  • Peter, Jr., b. Aug. 20, 1660[7]: d. in Nantucket in 1699.

Although some online trees show that Abigail died in 1660 at Nantucket, Nantucket, Massachusetts,[15] Peter's last child was born in 1680, and there is no evidence that he married at second wife. Given that, Abigail probably did not die until after 1680.Watt-266 19:18, 12 May 2016 (EDT)

She was buried in the Founders Burial Ground, Nantucket, Nantucket County, Massachusetts
