Henry Coster Emmet was born in New York City on Sept. 8th, 1836, and named after his mother's father, Henry Coster. The child died of dysentry on August 5, 1843 - a little more than a month before his eighth birthday.  His family was evidently on a seaside holiday in Rockaway Beach at the time.  He is buried in Hyde Park, NY, near his family's house, in the cemetery of the St. James Episcopal Church.
