There must have been two John Copelands about the same age. I think I have seen two in the census records when I have looked to see who John's parents were. I talked to one of their grandsons (Doyle Copeland, son of Cleve and Jennie Thompson Copeland )over the week-end and he is supposed to send me
I don't know for sure when they left Arkansas, but they moved to McAlester OK and lived there the rest of their lives. Doyle gave me Nancy's date of death as August 13, 1959. He couldn't remember when John died. He thought his great-grandfather was also John Wesley Copeland, but could not remember his
There is a John W. Copeland, wife Margaret S. and son William H. in Independence Co in 1870. Same family, I think, in 1880 in Stone County.
John W. Copeland 39 AR TN AR
Margaret E wife 28 TN TN NC
William H. son 11 AR TN AR
Sarah E. dau 9 AR TN AR
Joseph E son 8 AR
Millie B dau 6 AR
John W. son 3 AR
James M. son 1 AR
Looks like the birthplace of the parents are switched. Should be AR AR TN
I think the son John W. age 3 is the one who married Nancy E. Hively.
Here is all I have on this family. Don't have birthdates for all and may be in the wrong order.

Did they divorce? I do not know where Nancy is buried, so I can't check that, but I did check 1910 Izard Co. census.
