  1. Byron – was this the Danner Copeland that is in most of the old Watts pictures of urs and mine – if it is I never knew she had another name – first name??


    1. Pictures? I don’t have any pictures!

      But yes, it appears as if Danner Copeland’s first name was Silas, after her father. That name was mentioned on at least one census and in two obituaries. Full details are in my article on John Jasper Graham from 2013.
