    Notes 
    • Created by: John Mallory Land

      My original source for Betsey's maiden name (which is family notes my mother made, based on conversations with her aunt Permelia Catherine "Melia" ADERHOLD SHOEMAKER, 1890-1962) shows the spelling COPLAND. While this is a variant spelling of the name, the much more standard spelling of the name is COPELAND. I have been requested on 27 MAY 2020 by Sara Fielder, Contributor #47042075, to change the spelling here from COPLAND to COPELAND. I've decided to accept the suggested edit because the Last Will & Testament of Betsey's husband names as one of his heirs Syrena COPELAND, no doubt a kinswoman of Betsey. We understand that the spelling of surnames for an individual or family in times past was often much less fixed than it is today. Besides being a more standard spelling of the name, COPELAND also seems to convey more closely the current pronunciation of the name.

      Born about 1778 in South Carolina. Married, probably between 1800 and 1806 in South Carolina, to Robert S. BAILEY. They evidently had moved to Georgia by 1824 and were residing in Carroll County, Georgia, by October 3, 1827. Mother of at least nine children.

      According to an account by Dr. Joseph Robertson HOOD, in a letter to one of his grandchildren: as of 1855, the widowed Mrs. Betsy (COPLAND) BAILEY resides on the "large, well-improved and very fine farm on Snake's Creek in Carroll Co, GA," including a large and extra-fine body of bottom land, which her husband has left her. The public road from Carrollton to Palmetto runs through this farm, and family members are buried in a graveyard near the residence. [Much of this bottom land is now evidently under a lake formed by damming Snake's Creek.] Mrs. BAILEY's son-in-law George W. ADERHOLD resides on the farm and will attend to her business for the remainder of her life [Betsey is apparently deceased by March 3, 1860, when George W. & Nancy Elizabeth (BAILEY) ADERHOLD sell her interest in land lots 61, 36, and 29 in the Fifth Land District in Carroll Co, GA, which N. Elizabeth had inherited].
