I wish I had brought some flowers for the graves. And I also wish I could learn more about Catherine White Coffin. Not much out there about her. I did learn from wikipedia that Coffin was part of organizations that were trying to only use products made with paid labor. Quote from wiki-know-it-all-ia here:
The problem caused Coffin to begin to travel into the south to seek out plantations that did not use slave labor, but he met with only limited success. He located a cotton plantation inMississippi where the owner had freed all his slaves and operated by paying them as free laborers. The plantation was struggling financially because they had no equipment to automate the cotton production. Coffin helped the owner purchase a cotton gin that greatly increased their productivity and provided a steady supply of cotton for his association. The cotton was shipped to Cincinnati where it was spun into cloth and sold. Other trips to Tennessee and Virginia were less successful, although he did succeed in spreading the word about the movement.
The Coffins started out in Indiana, but then moved to Ohio. If you are ever in Cincinnati, I think you would like to drive through Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum. Really lovely.
