Coatsworth, Edward Emerson - Erie County

EDWARD EMERSON COATSWORTH, former District Attorney of Erie County, and a noted practitioner at the Buffalo bar, is a lawyer of wide experience and excellent record, and in civic, political and social connections commands the esteem of all who know him.

Mr. Coatsworth is of English ancestry, being a grandson of Thomas Coatsworth, who with his wife, Jane Graham, and other members of the family, came to Buffalo in 1817. In 1830 he purchased thirty acres of land in the South Side of Buffalo, thus becoming one of the principal land-owners of the city. Upon his death this property descended intact to his sons, Caleb and John.
