I believe I descend son Jonathan Copp and wife Margaret? My known lineage is via lawyer David Copp, Jr.,Esq., murdered 1803 or 1805 in a New Orleans, Louisiana, gambling house. A graduate of Philips Exeter Academy. Portsmouth, N.H., wed 15 years old Mary "Polly" Watson. Widowed, she wed Robert Porter of New Orleans, believed to be the U.S. Collector of Customs?
Daughter Adeline Cecelia Copp wed 1815, City of New Orleans senior attorney, Battle of New Orleans, de Jean's 1st Louisiana Militia, Adj. Lt. John (W?) Nixon, Esq., entombed Biloxi, Mississippi, June 4th or 7th, 1849, where he owned the Nixon House Hotel. In 1811 New Orleans, he helped co-found a Masonic Lodge. Born 1787, Mcguiresbridge, Co. Fermanagh, N. Ireland.
Daughter Martha Bell Nixon, 1818-1904, wed City of New Orleans asst. attny, Peregrine 'Perry' Snowden Warfield, Esq., of Georgetown, D.C., kin of Bessie Warfield who wed King Edward VIII. Martha's sister, Mrs. Jane Anna Nixon, 1820-1898, was the 2nd wife of LtCol (Holmes Co., MS, militia, born 1811, Wilmington, N.C.) Robert Wm. James, civilian master of the Army transport 'Gen.

David Copp, Jr., Esq., was the son of LtCol. David Copp, Sr., Patriot, captain at the Battle of Bunker Hill. As a Protestant legislator, David Sr. fought the legal dis-enfranchisement of Catholics. Spiritually, as simply a deist, religious tolerance is important to me; and learning of ancestor David's in-kind spiritual tolerance, heartened me, over two centuries later. He wed Margaret Palmer, daughter of one-armed legislator and inn keeper, Maj. Barnabas Palmer, Sr., who's wife Elizabeth Robinson of Exeter, N.H., descended Govs. Dudley and Winthrop.
