His land grants are in Book 4, pg 80, Virginia Archives . A reputable source on this Coppedge family is "Coppage-Coppedge Chronicle 1542- 1975, pg 143. He married Lucy Sarah Lunsford, daughter of John Lunsford. He is named in the Will of his father William Coppedge, a Planter. That Will was proved in 1700, in which he and each of his brothers received seperate plantations. He is believed to be buried at the historic Wicomico Church Cemetery, the church attended most of the family and where many other Coppedge- Coppage kin are buried. No headstone has yet been located for him. Some of the older gravestones are no longer legible or intact due to age and exposure to the elements. It is assumed his grave is one that is now unmarked.
