Thanks for your reply. I have 8 children for David and Elfida, but your Elfida wasn't one of them. Could you send her dates and places? Here is what I have:
1. Male Coopwood, b. about 1818 and died before 1830. He is based on the 1820 census of Lawrence Co., AL.
2. Martha Ann Coopwood, b. 1820, d. 11 Jun 1844, m. William H. Wilson.
3. Nancy B. Coopwood, b. 1821, m. Gideon B. Wallace.
4. Benjamin F. Coopwood, b. 1822, d. 1918, m. Eliza A. Nowlin.
5. Delilah Beatrice Coopwood (my ggg gma), b. 9 Feb 1825, d. 6 Jan 1904, m. Asa T. Nowlin (son of Stephen Nowlin).
6. Bethel Coopwood (described as the "colorful lawyer", commanded a spy company during the Civil War), b. 1 May 1828, d. 12 Dec 1907, married Josephine Woodward.
7. Male Coopwood, b. 1825-1830. He is based on the 1830 census of Lawrence Co., AL.
8. David Coopwood, b. about 1832, m.1 Mary J. Green, m.2 Martha L. Nowlin (dau. of Stephen Nowlin).
Was daughter Elfida born after 1830? David died about 1832. I do not have this family on a census in 1840, but by the mid-1840's at least some of them were in Mississippi. Delilah married in DeSoto Co., MS, 1 Jan 1846.
According to Goodspeed's Biography for Gibson Co., TN, Elfida had a sister Sallie, b. in VA, who married Robert Corley in VA and then moved to TN, eventually settling in Gibson Co. Sallie died in 1846 and Robert married her widowed sister Elfida. She died in 1857 and he died in 1858. I have looked for Crews in the census, but there is not much before 1820 in TN. I have looked a little for information on the Thomasons in VA before the Revolution and found nothing definitive yet. So I guess I can't extend your information, just fill it in a little. Would still love to hear from you. You can post to this forum or e-mail me at email@example.com
