Bessie A Copeland b. 1892 Wayne County, Missouri, daughter of Allen Wade (AW) Copeland. Sister of James Wade Copeland, Edward Green Copeland, and Maggie Copeland (who died as a child). Bessie was living as a single woman with AW (the whole family, in fact) in the 1910 census, when she was 18. Have not found mention of her since in any censes. Marriage? Death? Came up empty. I have a feeling she married and moved out of state, but it's just a feeling. Thanks everyone -
