Yes that's correct half that I just Posted didn't show up but its links to the profiles. I'm sorry about this mess. Thanks for helping
See how William Mathis is 10 living with stepdad Ed Dill and mother Sousanna. Well when he past away he is William Cope not Mathis. This William Lee Cope is William Mathis also, I'm confused. You will probably have to look at death certificate's and census to see what I see I can't explain it completely but I got it on here for all us wikitree people to look over maybe we all can fugue this mess out one day. Lol this is my moms grandparents Minnie Cope Parker and Dee Monroe Parker his mother was a Mathis .and Minnie Cope her dad at age 10 was William Mathis but died William Lee Cope? What a mess
See up top William Lee Cope and Emma Brown married at Ed Dills house by John H Mathis which is a brother of Dee Monroe Parker's mother Dephia Mathis Parker Dee Monroe Parker married the daughter of William Lee Cope and Emma Brown but the William Cope that got married at his stepdads house Ed Dill, is on a census with his stepdad as William Mathis not William Cope. What it looks like is that William Mathis went by Mathis to he got ready to married and changed his name. But maybe I'm all confused with this and they was a William Cope and William Mathis maybe brothers or stepbrothers?  Thanks

http://Name: William Mathis Age: 10 Birth Date: Abt 1870 Birthplace: North Carolina Home in 1880: Canada, Jackson, North Carolina, USA Dwelling Number: 28 Race: White Gender: Male Relation to Head of House: Stepson Marital Status: Single Father's Birthplace: North Carolina Mother's name: Sousanna Dills Mother's Birthplace: North Carolina Attended School: Yes Cannot Read: Yes Cannot Write: Yes Neighbors: View others on page Household Members: Name Age Edmon Dills 30 Sousanna Dills 26 William Mathis 10

And look at this the first census it has Minnie Cape age 10 but I'm sure its Cope .it is a 1900 census she is a boarder with Ed and Mabel I'm sure this is Susan

OK the other census is 1880 William Mathis age 10 with stepdad Edmon and mother Sousanna 

If I got something wrong with all this can someone tell me what Mabel's last name is and what Susanna's last name is their maiden names 



OK that above is the death certificate for William Lee Cope his dad John Cope mother Susanna and Minnie Parker is the witness at bottom, so with all this information it shows William Cope same as William Mathis mother same stepdad Ed Dills biological dad John Cope so was Susanna born Mathis and if she was then who is her parents?  Thanks
