Content Description

The Cheney and Kilborn Coffin Records collection (2011-107-0) is a collection of two typed transcripts compiled into one collection. The collection is a list of people who the two coffin makers (Silas Ellis Cheney and John Kilborn) made coffins for, the price, what the coffin was made from, and the date. The two made coffins for many people in town including the Buells, Buels, Ozias Seymour, and Lyman Beecher and the Beecher Estate. One entry that might be of some interest is the purchase of a Child’s coffin by Cato, a slave.
