The mother of William H. (Hampton?) Copeland (over 90 yrs old?), Lucile Copeland Garrett (deceased in Tampa, FL), and Ellen Copeland ______? (also deceased in Tampa, FL, was Eunice _______?? COPELAND (later, Stafford and Gaston), and their father was _____? COPELAND. We have recently started this family project, as these are parts of my children's other tree branches. We believe the Copelands and probably Eunice's parents and family (____?) were living in GA, maybe at one time in Floyd Co., GA.
Their father, Garesche Ordway "Doc" Garrett, Jr. (deceased) was son of Lucile Copeland and Garesche Ordway Garrett, Sr. (also called "Doc").Garesche, Sr. lived in his own home in Maryland for many years where he worked there and in Washington D.C. for a famous ice cream company, before he retired anmd later moved to Florida in about 1985.We don't know who were his parents, or even where he was born, except that he sometimes mentioned that all his names were people's last names and that is why he decided he wanted to be called something friendly, like "Doc" when he was a young boy.
We already have 3 surnames in their father's name: Garesche, Ordway, Garrett. I have noticed all three surnames in my researching other people in past years. We expect it will be challenging and interesting, as usual.
If these names are connected with someone or someone knows of a link back a generation, or to siblings, or is found in someone's family branches, please let us know, here, or contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you for your kind attention. Sincerely, Annadella Paschal
