Grant Milton Copple was likely my 4th cousin 3 times removed. He was the son of William Linton Copple and Lenora (Stough) Copple, both Iowa natives.
Laura Olive Shay was the daughter of Harry Shay, a native of England, and Olive Hill, a native of Rock County, Illinois.
Sadly, their marriage lasted only 7-1/2 years, ending with Laura’s death at the age of approximately 27 years. She was survived by her husband Grant, and by their three young children.
