Sam Coit died while visiting his granddaughter in South Weymouth, Massachusetts.
Neat little tidbit
Coit was buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery with his first wife, Mary.
Put into context
Coit hadn’t lived in Hartford since 1892, at which time he re-located to Washington, DC to be closer to business interests he held in Virginia. At some point in the last year or so, he sold those interests and moved to El Paso, TX.
