The below data was given to me by Betty M Majors on my recent trip to McMinnville.It came from a photocopy of a book that is or was in the possession of a Trudy Coppinger.How she fits in the Cope's I have yet discovered(or I know and just don't realize it).On the margin is written "Bought in Warren County on the 1st thursday in August on Eleection Day in 1833."The Females Praticle Monitor or Guide to Health" by Thom A Anderson,M.D., 1832".This was someones journal,as they kept records of the family init.Who the original owner was is unknown at this time.I have typed it as it was written.Some of it is new stuff.It gives all 16 children of Stephen Cope and Comfort Bouldin,something that most of us did not have.It also gives their exact birth and death dates.
I have made the changes to my records and have updated the descendency chart.So if you would like a copy,it is there.I will hopefully in the next year start researching land records in order to find where Stephen & Comfort exactly made their home(or homes).Would also like to solve the problem of where they are buried.
