  of 684

Daniel COPES, either a Scottish Emigrant or son of Scottish Emigrants settled first in Accomac or Henrico County, VA and then moved to Braod Creek Hundred, Sussex Co., DE. He was known as Daniel the Scot or Daniel the Covenantor. He had a son Thomas COPES who died at Sussex County in c1790. Thomas had one son and three daughters. The names of the daughters aren't known, but the son was:

Rev. Joseph COPES
b. 03 Oct 1765 at Broad Creek Hundred, Sussex Co., DE
d. 06 Apr 1822 at Lewes, Sussex Co., DE

He married 1st: Janet (JENNY) WILKENS WHITE in 1791 and then Letitia WAPLES. Joseph and Jenny had four sons and five daughters and Joseph and Letitia had one daughter. The known children were:

Thomas COPES (???-1849)
James Wilson COPES (1809-1863)
Joseph Stemmings COPES (1811-???)
Hester Waples COPES (1816-1867)

James Wilson COPES married Elizabeth Lucinda BELL (1820-1893) in 1839 at Brazoria County, Texas. It is this family I am most interested in.
