Hi Linda,
I found a couple Family Trees on-line that might be your Copeland family. I asked the authors to contact you.

The following is what I found independently.

In 1860 a James Copeland was living with his parents and siblings in Division 1, Blount Co., AL.
J C Copeland, head household, b. AL, 33 yrs old, farmer.
Nancy, wife, b. AL, 27.
James, b. AL, 7.
William J., b. AL, 5.
Mary, b. Al, 1.
Mary A., b. AL, 9.

In 1880 James C Copeland, wife and children were living in Morgan, Alabama.
James C. Copeland, b.AL, 24 yrs old, both parents born AL, farmer.
Margrett, wife, b. AL, 23.
Andrew, b. AL, 2.
Jennettie, b. AL, 2 mos. Twin
Henriettie, b. AL, 2 mos, twin.

In 1910 James, wife and children lived in Justice Precinct 7, Denton Co., TX.
Jim C. Copeland, b. AL, 55, both parents born AL, farmer.
Ada F., 2nd wife, b. AL, 48.
Della M., b. TX, 18.
James, b. TX, 16.
Eugenela, b. TX, 15.
Allen D., b. TX, 13.
Veola B., b. TX, 11.
Cora Bell, b. TX, 8.
Ada, b. TX, 6.
Katie M., B. TX, 4.
Willie, dau, b. TX, age blank.

Their neighbor was Joseph Blaylock.

In 1920 James and family lived in same precinct, Denton Co.
James C. Copeland, b. AL, 65, general farmer.
Ada F., wife, b. AL, 55.
Ada, b. TX, 15.
Katie, b. TX, 13.
Peleus Danis, sonlaw, b. TX, 18.
Cara R. Danis, dau, b. TX, 18.
Joseph Blaylock, brolaw, b. AL, 53, single, laborer working out.

I didn't find death info for James. I'd contact the Denton County HIstorical Commission, http://dentoncounty.com/dept/main.asp?Dept=112&Link=640 .


Another source is the Emily Fowler Central Library, http://www.cityofdenton.com/pages/libraryspecialcollections.cfm .

Ada Francis Copeland b. 11 Feb 1867, AL, died 14 Dec 1936, Denton, Denton Co., TX. Widowed, Spouse-s Name=James Copeland, Father's Name=Henry Tolbert, Mother's Name=Mary Blalock, Occupation=Housekeeper, Residence=Denton, TX, Cemetery-Oak Grove Cemetery, Denton Co, Burial Date-14 Dec 1936. Source: FamilySearch, http://pilot.familysearch.org/ .

A James M. Copeland Estimated Birth Year=1894, died 8 May 1970, Denton, Denton Co. Father's Name=J. C. Copeland, Mother's Name=Blaylock. Source: Same as above.

I didn't find a Pinkney Copeland who lived or died in Denton 1919-1920. Successful Searching!
