Hello, In the 1850 Census - Wood County, VA (WV) Aaron Caplinger has his family plus 2 additional people. The census list is as follows: Aaron Caplinger 37, Eliza Caplinger 30, Lucy Caplinger 14, Catherine Caplinger 11, Melissa Caplinger 7, Artemisia Caplinger 5, William G Caplinger 3, Lucretia Copen 53 (maybe 55) and George W. Copen 19. Does anyone know who Lucretia and George are? Could Lucretia be Eliza's mother - I know someone wrote that Eliza was a Workman - is there a marriage license with her name on it?
My interest is in establishing whether or not Eliza is a Copen. - And if so - who is the father of Eliza / husband of Lucretia?
I am not directly tied into the Caplinger family - but am searching for an Artemisia. The census record sets up the idea that Eliza is related to the Copen family. My ancestor is David Lee. He married Priscilla Reeder - then a second marriage to Artemisia Copen (Her last name is Either Coper or Copen ---or a very mispelled Cooper). When I decided to research the Copen theory - I discovered Aaron and his family - including George and Lucretia living / just a couple of listings down on the census. To add to the coincidense- They have a daughter named Artemisia. Later on my Artemisia Copen Lee has a child named Melissa.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated - Narcissa (firstname.lastname@example.org)
