Surnames: Copeland
I am looking for people whose roots go back to the slaves of the family of William Copeland Sr. who died in Harris County, GA in 1859. My 2nd great-grandfathers were sold as boys away from their families upon the death of the patriarch. I would like to find the descendents of my grandfather's parents or their brothers and sisters. I am hoping that that someone out there shares the same oral history. I have a copy of the will of William Copeland Sr. and his inventory which provides the name, age, and value of some of his slaves. I can share that with anyone interested.

There were no Granberries on the list. It could be a chosen surname. What are the first names of your ancestors?
