George Augustus Coffin was born 17 August 1842 in Beverly, Essex County, Massachusetts to Edmund Coffin (1808-1867) and Elizabeth Wallis Moulton (1810-1898) and died 23 December 1863 Newport News, Virginia of unspecified causes.

George Augustus Coffin, son of Edmund and Elizabeth/Betsy, was born Aug. 17, 1842.

Brother of John Francis Coffin, who was born Feb. 23, 1848.

Some records show he died in Beverly, but other records show Virginia, which makes more sense.

He enlisted in Company H, Massachusetts 25th Infantry Regiment on 16 Sep 1861 and died 23 Dec 1863 at Newport News, VA. His name is included on the Soldiers' Monument in Worcester, MA.
