Burial: Place: Grove City, PA Note: Died at 9PM. Buried next to his wife in the Pine Grove Presbyterian Cemetery. Their grave stones are tall, white obelisks (cost $28 each) -- weathered till they are barely legible. James was a farmer and United Presbyterian. James inherited 150 acres from his parents in what in now Pine Twp., Mercer Co., PA. In 1821 he built the log house there where he and his wife spent all their married life, and where their children were born. The house, later sided with weather boarding and remodeled several times, is still standing on the old farmstead southwest of Grove City, PA. In those early days, sheep were raised for their wool, which was carded, spun, and woven into cloth. Mrs. Lily (Ray) Byers, a great-grandda ughter, has a bonnet and a pair of mittens made from wool raised by the early Coulters. In addition to 11 children of their own, James and Cynthia raised a namesake granddaughter, Cynthia Rose McCoy (mother of Lily Ray Byers).
