About Our Family Research

My recent family tree begins with the surnames of Copelin, Stephens, Richards, and Crabb. Going back from there is Morris, Boring, Little, and Stubblefield. My research has shown that most of my ancestors came from the England, Ireland, Wales, Germany, and France. My french ancestors immigrated to Canada at one time. Their most recent surname, before coming to the United States in the late 1700's or early 1800's was Cyr. The Copelin's and Morris's participated in the Oklahoma Land Run in 1899, coming from Kansas and Mississippi. The Copelin's can be traced back to Nancy Montgomery, wife of Thomas Copelin. Nancy's great great grandfather, James Crocketagne, was the brother of Davy Crockett's great great grandfather, Joseph Louis Crocketagne. Thomas and Nancy were my great great great great grandparents. My Boring family tree is the same as that of Tom Allman, who has the "John Doss Boring" website. At this time in my research, it appears that most of my family fought for the South in the War Between the States. Generation after generation of Morris's lived in Pasquotank County, North Carolina from the late 1600's until at least the late 1700's, before they began to migrate west. Origianal resources for the Morris family include the "Encyclopedia of Quaker Genealogy". For the most part my family were farmers. William Joseph Little, of Georgia, owned over 2,000 acres and in 1830 owned seven slaves. Most of my family is still in Oklahoma.
