This is in response to Beverly Sullivan's query (her return email address was not functional) Dear Beverly: I have the following information, which I quote from "Copeland: Our Branch of the Family Tree", 1992, by Marjorie Young of Grand Prarie, Texas. It may or may not be pertinent..... These events transpired in Madison Co., AL (near Wayne County...) "By spring of 1812 James #2 [Copeland - my note] had fallen in love with Catherine Gillis, the daughter of Daniel Gillis of Scotland and Nancy Patterson of North Carolina, and obtained a marriage license on March 19, 1812....... On July 21, 1812, Mary Jane Copeland, Catherine and James' first child, was born." James (1791-1866) and Catherine (1796-1883) resided in Wayne County, and had the following children: Mary Jane, Thomas S., Daniel G., James DUGAL, William J. and Joseph Matthew. While I know this doesn't, in many ways, math the info in your query, ya gotta admit the curious interplay in the above account between a Catherine Gillis and a "Dugal"...... Hope this provides an opportunity for head scratchin'. Regards,

I am seeking information on Alexander (for some reason always known as Elec) HARNESS. He was born in Tennessee in 1836. I strong believe he was from Wayne County. He was in Searcy County AK by 1855 where he married Jane (Jennie) RENFROE. There was a very large migration of people from Wayne County to Searcy. Probably half the early settlers in Searcy County were from the Wayne County area. I believe Alexander was on of these people. He died in 1859 and I have not be able to find any census record of him in 1850. Any help about him or his parents would be much appreciated. If there are any of you who think their family might have gone to Searcy County I do have two Searcy County History books. They are by no means complete but are both indexed. I would be willing to do look ups in them if you will be very specific in your request. Because there are often 15 listings for one surname I will need at the least a complete name and any other information you can give.
