Evaline COUPEE m: Malcijah Benjamin (Kige) HIGHSMITH, Bastrop Co., TX
http://genforum.genealogy.com/coop/messages/342.htmlhttp://genforum.genealogy.com/coop/messages/342.html - Thanks for your response. When I see the spelling it makes me think of a French pronunciation, cou-pe'. Of course, I really have no clue. This is the only spelling I have been able to locate for Evaline.
