Seeking information of descendants of John Gustavus Abner Copeland b. 31 March 1850 Stewart County, GA; moved to OR from TX.He was married to Phoebe Elizabeth Mitchell b. 14 Feb. 1860 at Pilgrim Lake, Gonzales County, TX.They took at least some of his younger children to OR with him.
John moved from Gonzales Co. TX to probably Douglas County, OR.The TX family knows it was "Oregon Plum Country."When he died, he was living in North Myrtle Creek, Douglas County, TX.Does anyone know at what cemetery he is buried?
I found a cemetery listing for his son, Grover A. Copeland b. 1888 d. 1970 and what must be his wife, Clara E. Copeland b. 1895 d. 1953 listed in the on-line Cemetery listing as buried at Adams Cemetery in Douglas County, OR.
He had children named John, Sarah, Jesse (m), Harvey, Grover A., and Clarence Copeland.
Would love to learn more about his descendants.I have his ancestors back to early 1600s in VA.I descend from his brother, Richard Marcus Copeland.
