I also am researching Copelands, but they aren't choctaw, they came to
alabama in early 1800's from Sumter SC, I have a few websites with
information, if you need it, you may find your white ancestors before they
got to Mississippi territory.

Subject: [CHOCTAW] Copeland/Daugherty

> I am researching Copeland and Daugherty families. I believe that Rilda
Copeland was Choctaw. She married John Louis Daugherty. Her father was John
Bunyon Copeland and his father was John Whetstone Copeland. I am not sure if
the Daugherty side was Native American. All I have are the stories passed
down from generation to generation. I know you have heard this before many
times. My mother heard my great grandfather (Leonard Washington Daugherty)
speak the language. He also talked of the reservation in Oklahoma. He had
much resentment against the Choctaw as he was considered a half breed. He
believes he was not treated fairly. He received an application for land in
Oklahoma and promptly tore it up. I wish to know of my ancestors. There are
many unanswered questions.
