|Birth: ||Jan. 16, 1845|
|Death: ||Jan. 1, 1908|
Eldest child of Thomas S. Copeland and Martha Ann Qualls. He married Sarah Elizabeth Sinclair on 6 July 1865 in Wayne County, Tennessee. They were the parents of four sons and two daughters.
Jonathan was a Federal soldier during the Civil War and like his father, Thomas S. Copeland, he received a invalid pension from the Federal government.
I interviewed Arthur Oates Stricklin, grandson of Jonathan, in 1981. He remembered Jonathan well. He said that because Jonathan could no longer walk, the family attached wheels to a chair and made him a "rolling chair". The grandchildren thought it was great fun to push him around.
Other than the time that Jonathan was in the War he spent his entire life in the area in which he was born.
Obituary - SAVANNAH COURIER - published at Savannah, Hardin County, Tennessee
dated January 3, 1908
"J. B. Copeland of Lutts, a brother to our townsman, J. G. Copeland, died Wednesday night from general dibility. He was 63 years old and leaves a wife and several grown children."
The middle name Baker has been added to this memorial. Family members have said that this was his middle name. I have never found any document that listed a middle name, only an initial. He is always found as Jonathan B. However, due to the fact that he had grandsons with this middle name makes me comfortable n adding this.
A military marker was placed at this grave in 1984 by Sandra Haney Tedford.
