Copples in the News – James Lowry Copple dies

This is a follow-up post to a previous post about James Lowry Copple of Iowa and Illinois (which you can read here.)  He had married Mary Harmsen in 1923, and there was no mention of it being a second marriage.

In this obituary, however, mention is made of his first wife Alice (Applen) Copple, who bore him a son who died in infancy.   The obituary is in sync with the 1910 census which indicates James and Alice were married circa 1906, and that a child was born, but was no longer living.

James died in 1939, and was survived by wife Mary (Harmsen) Copple.
