      In a statement dictated at a family reunion in 1955 by Mary Martha Emmeline (Dunlap) Copeland, daughter of William C. Dunlap and Adeline Kennedy, to her daughter, Fannie (Copeland) Harris, Martha Copeland gave her paternal great-grandparents as James Dunlap and ELIZABETH COLE. A photocopy of this document was given to me by my Great Aunt Kate (Copeland) McLean in 1982. Aunt Kate was Aunt Fannie Harris' sister and she was present when my great-grandmother Copeland made her statements.
