Re: Why was Grandpa's middle name Coppedge???

In Reply to: Why was Grandpa's middle name Coppedge??? by Carol Hull of 486 the earlier was quite common to give the children their mothers maiden name as a "middle" name. So you might have a very important clue right there.

Now as far as the spelling, Coppedge versus Coppage, those are two spellings for the same last name. I know my ancestors alternated between the two spellings. It might be because someone else was taken the information and spelled it as it sounded. I have also came across Coppedge spelled like Coppidge and Coppige. There are many others I'm sure.

Good Luck with your research!
