Memorial #111687393 - you asked for more information regarding his burial. I left you a message as an "edit" on his memorial.

Dear Dan,

I thought the easiest was to just move my picture to your entry and leave it as is.

Eva Louisa Copas Spaugh
Hi Dan,
I received the denial on the edit for Eva Louise Copas Spaugh #101121228.

This line has me confused and any assistance you have I sure would appreciate. Below is my research.
Two possible different William Copas/Copass have been located during my research. Both are from Ohio, both moved to St Francois County, Missouri.

Our William H Copas married Belinda Morris on 26 Apr 1857 in Vinton County, Ohio.

The first census as a family is in 1860, Wilkesville, Vinton, Ohio.

Wm H Copass age 22

Malinda Copass (Belinda Morris) age 21

Mary N Copass age 02

Winifred S Copass age 24 (brother?)

Sometime before the 1870 Census they moved to Liberty, St Francois, Missouri.

William H Copass age 33

Belinda Copass age 31

Mary N Copass age 12

Louisa E Copass age 08 aka: Eva Louisa

William Copass age 3

I find "our" William H Copas died before Aug 20, 1904, this is when Belinda submits for widow's benefits.


The second William H Copas born around the same year as "our" William, he is also born in Ohio.

I find him first in the 1880 Census in Liberty, St Francois, Missouri. Is this the same as our William? I think maybe not since Belinda is listed in 1904 applying for our William's pension benefits. However, the son William add's up correctly age wise. Possibly Belinda also goes by "Mary".

William H Copas age 43

Mary A Copas age 40

Charles K Copas age 04

William S Copas age 13 (Possibly William Sherman Copas)

Mattie F Copas age 09

************************************************ ****************

I found a memorial for Rev W H Copas, b 9 Sep 1836, d. 23 Jul 1904, buried
Niangua Cemetery Niangua
Webster County
Missouri, USA
Created by: Steve Stokes
Record added: Aug 29, 2012 Find A Grave Memorial# 96227159

His son Charles K Copas is linked to his memorial.

IF THIS IS THE SAME AS OUR WILLIAM,does this mean that Belinda is actually Mary on the 1880 Census? I know that Eva Louisa Copas marries in 1879, so she is gone from the family. I know that Charles K dies in 1893. I assume Mary N marries before 1880, since she would have been of age. As I mentioned before William S, I believe is William Sherman Copas, he marries a Noami Taylor in Ohio. Mattie F Copas would be of age to be married by the 1900 Census. I know that Belinda marries a Mr. Rose and she is widowed by the 1920 Census, where she lives with Eva Louisa's family. Belinda dies in 1928 as Belinda Rose.

Can anyone tell me if the 1880 Census is "our" William H Copas?

If you'd like, I'd be happy to transfer her memorial to you-let me know.

I sent an edit changing the birthplace from Davidson County to Rowan County because Davidson County wasn't created until 1822 from Rowan County.

Harper's Chapel Cemetery
Was at the cemetery today. Can you correct the address on Find A Grave? The address should be:
1360 State Road 1560
Lenoir, NC 28645

(Note: address listed is the other Harper's Chapel Church)

We found a large number of graves underground. Any thought to the church or another group cleaning it up other than mowing? We located my 2nd Great Grandmother's marker underground including foot marker. (Caroline Faw 1820-1908)
I added a photo that shows it after we dug it out. I am having an estimate for it's repair and resetting. Can you transfer it to me:

Gremlins in the SACs
I remember now...there is a glitch in the SAC system, where a new linking can actually remove a valid existing link. I think we chatted once before, as I see you are interested in the Hanawalts/Rothrocks. Husband is a Replogle thru Samuel Brumbaugh Rep.

Thanks for rejecting the recent SAC. I have no idea why it wanted to remove Grace's parents. I think I was just adding her husband as a link. Gremlins. Thanks for being alert!!

Fidelia Anne Odom
Fidelia Anne Odom went by "Annie" mostly according to my Mother's family. William Henry Stevenson is my Great Grandfather with 2nd wife and my Great Grandmother, Mary Young Stevenson. I believe we are cousins. :)

2 missing children of Jacob Crater
I believe that the two missing children are Emma and William Crater. Emma was born about 1861 and William about 1863. They can be found in the 1870 Union Grove Township, Iredell County, North Carolina Federal Census. However, Jacob was married to Mary Elizabeth. If Jacob did not marry Mary until after the death of Rebecca, Rebecca would have been the mother of Emma and William Crater. - Cheryle Latour, a Cooper descendant
