I'm trying to resolve the parent conflict on this profile. According to the (unsourced) about me, the correct parents are Stephen Coffin and Mary Bunker. However, according to "Genealogical and personal memoirs relating to the families of the state of Massachusetts, Volume 4", the correct parents are Stephen Coffin and Sarah Atkinson - see http://bit.ly/igucm4.

Does anyone have any other information about Sarah's parents?

The correct wife is Sarah Atkinson (1665-1724), daughter of John Atkinson and Sarah Myrick. Nothing about Stephen Coffin ever marrying a Mary Bunker and I checked 2 sources. Profiles updated.

Thanks Erica, I agree with you. my records show the same thing. I don't see any reference to Mary Bunker.

There's a Mary Bunker married to an earlier Stephen Coffin, I believe. I merged around her (but didn't source her profile out) -- it was quite enough to straighten out Sarah Bailey's family!
