About Our Family Research
I am the son of Elwood Thomas Cope who was born in Mariby, KY in 1911. His Father was Shelby Cope and his mother was Abba Eggleston. My father left Kentucky as a young man and came to the Tecumseh/Macomb, Oklahoma area. He was married to my mother, Stella Bessie Clement in 1938. My parents had eight children. They are Jerry, 1939, Dorothy, 1941, Linda Kaye, 1943, Johnnie Lee, 1945, TWINS Myra and Vera, 1947, David Pat, 1955, and Cheryl, 1959.
I recently returned from Lexington KY where I attended a Hamman Family Reunion. I am a decendent of Phillip Hamman whose daughter Polly married James P. Cope. I believe the line is as follows: James P. Cope>>>William Jackson Cope>>>Buck Cope>>>Shelby Cope>>>Elwood Cope>>>Johnnie L. Cope.
