Maries County Chapter of Godspeed's History of Various Missouri, USA Counties

Hon. William Marcus Copeland, judge of the First District of the County Court of Maries, and a farmer and stock-raiser of Jack-son Township, was born in Pulaski, Missouri, USA., in 1842, and is a son of John and Mary America (Wiseman) Copeland. John Copeland was born in Knox, Tenn., April 26, 1819, and when twelve years of age removed to the State of Missouri, USA with his parents, who located in Osage, now Maries, five miles north of Vienna. John Copeland married in 1839, and located near the old homestead, from which place he removed to Pulaski County in 1841, where he lived about five years, and then returned to Maries, settling three and a half miles north of the County seat, where he owned 320 acres of land. He died October 27, 1876. The mother of our subject was born in Knox, Tenn., February 6, 1823, and is still living; she is the mother of eleven children, seven of whom survive, viz.: William M., Francis M., Calvin C., Albert W., John K, Telitha T., wife of Herbert Adkins, and Matilda, wife of David Helton. William Copeland, paternal grandfather of our subject, a native of Virginia, served as a soldier in the War of 1812, was one of the pioneers of Central Missouri, USA, and died in 1862. William M. Copeland was reared to the pursuit of farming, and during the war served nine months in the State Militia in the company commanded by Capt. Beasley. August 19, 1860, he married Adaime Cowen, who was born in Maries, Missouri, USA., in 1843, and is a daughter of David and Teli­tha (Martin) Cowen. To this union have been born fourteen children, viz.: Mary E., wife of David Taff; Telitha J., wife of T. J. Knobblet; Lumima E., wife of F. M. Terry; Julia, wife of George Terry; MyriaJeanzadia, wife of S. B. Twilliger; Calvin C., David A., Granville M., Ida E., John L., Minnie A., Lorenzo D., Lannie M. and William O. After his marriage Mr. Copeland located six miles north-west of Vienna; he has ever since resided in Maries, and re-moved to his present farm, three-quarters of a mile southwest of Vienna, about 1885. He owns 160 acres of land, and is an enterprising farmer and respected citizen of the County. He served as justice of the peace in Boone Township, and in the fall of 1888 was elected on the Democratic ticket as judge of the First District of the County Court. Mr. and Mrs. Copeland are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South.
