COPE, George
Posted by: Allan F. Cope Date: May 18, 1998 at 09:22:36

I am searching for information on my paternal grandfather,
William or C. William COPE. On his marriage liscense (obtained
in Gates County, North Carolina, in 1912) he listed his father
as being George COPE of Missouri, who was deceased by 1912, He
listed his mother as Mary REILEY COPE, who was living in
Mississippi in 1912.
From his death certificate (filed in Norfolk, Virginia in
Feb. 1943) William's birthdate was May 11, 1888 and his
birthplace listed as somewhere in Missouri.
I have located a George COPE, who was married to Tabitha
HIGGINS COPE, who lived in Daviess County, Missouri, according
to the 1860 census. They had a child (born 1858) named George
living with them. This George COPE may be my paternal great
grandfather, but I cannot establish a link between him and my
grandfather William.
Any assistance that you could share on any of these names
that I have listed, would be sincerely appreciated.

Thanks,
Rev. Allan F. Cope
San Antonio, Texas
