Susan Smith aka Susie Coppels / Coppel, Copples, Coppelo,

Susan Smith 20 Apr 1872 GA – 25 March 1966 Kerr Co, TX • L5J3-1K as per Carlasue Tucker; "Texas Deaths, 1890-1976," DOB is 20 Apr 1872

Carlasue Tucker dug in and dug out information on Susan (Smith) Coppels who is among other sources listed in Texas Death index and has a Find A Grave Index listing. I have no reason to suppose this is not the correct information since Carla is a careful researcher. " April 30, 2018 by Carlasue -- Susan and Elizabeth are the same person via researcher Margaret Lindley"

Information as to the marriage of Susan to Riley Medlock and the child Willomina is from researcher Margaret Ann Pate Lindly but without proofs. We think that this information can be discounted.

Sent: Sat, Feb 9, 2019 from Mickey Riley Jr -- "Hmm, something is not right here without a good story -- according to 1900 census Susan is age 24, married to J P Coppell, in 1891 , has child Rosa 8, Chas 7 & puts her birth year 1876, whereas the 1880 census has her birth year 1873"

Census is not necessarily the most accurate record for birth information. A lot depends upon both the informant to the Census taker and the literacy of the Census taker.
Census and death record from State of TX is supported by the 1880 Census
