About Zenas Coffin

Charles Griffin Coffin was the son of Captain Zenas Coffin and Abial Gardner, the sixth child of their eight children. His father was an exceedingly enterprising and successful ship master in the whaling service. He owned many whaling ships and carried on a large mercantile business at Nantucket for many years. So extensive were his commercial operations that he found it to his interest to be his own insurer on his ships. He died at the age of sixty four. His widow lived to be ninety two.
