 Margaret A. Copeland
Submitted by:  Laurel Baty

“Nashville Christian Advocate” August 1, 1885

Mrs. Margaret A. Copeland, daughter of William and Nancy Adair, was born in Tennessee, Sept. 27, 1805, and died near Flint, in Morgan County, Ala., April 15, 1885. Sister Copeland was a member of the Methodist Church at Johnson’s Chapel, where she was recognized as a true follower of Christ. She was the mother of five children, a step mother to nine, and also raised several orphan children, all of whom loved her, and called her one of the best of mothers. Her house was known by all that knew her to be a welcome spot for the preachers for six years [probably should be sixty]. They held meeting and preached at her house in White County, Tenn. She was very feeble for some time before she died, but her faith in Jesus was strong. A short time before she died she shouted and praised God, and sang that sweet and familiar song, “O how I love Jesus,” in just as clear a tone as one that was well. She often told her aged and bereaved husband that when she got home she would have a new tongue, and that she would praise her Maker for ever and ever. Mrs. E. M. Isley
Note: Margaret Adair Copeland is the second wife of James Wilson Copeland. Her tombstone has her year of death as 1883. There is another obituary for her in the “Alabama Christian Advocate” giving the 1885 date of death and written by her step-son A. G. Copeland.
