8.  Andrew Jackson "Jack" Cope Sr. was born on March 24, 1818 in Harlan County, KY.

    He was a farmer.
 

    David Nelson visited the county seat of Clay County, KY and found a land record in
    the genealogy section of the local library showing that Andrew J. and Winnie Cope
    owned land on "Red Bird Creek".  A Clay County, KY county court record on August
    27, 1827 says "On motion of Faris Roberts he [John M. Hacker] is sppt surveyor of
    the road from the ford of the Red Bird below Andrew Cope up big creek to the top
    of the ridge and that Andrew Cope, David Lewis, Thomas Roberts, Claiborn Hacker,
    Titus Hacker, Jack Wilson, Swinfield Roberts, Faris Roberts, Samuel Hacker, Hogan
    Hacker, Jessee Roberts and Dudly Hunt and all persons residing on the waters on
    Big Creek keep the same in repair as the law directs."
   
    He appeared in the census in 1850 in Knox County, KY.  It lists Andrew (32), Winny
    (28), William (5) and Mary (3) living next door to his sister Elizabeth.  Jack
    appeared in the census in 1860 in Stinking Creek District, Knox County, KY.  It
    lists Andrew (42), Winnie (38), William (15), Wily (10), Jesse (4), Nancy (2) and
    his brother Ambrose (28) and father Andrew Jesse (70).
   
    He served in the military in the American Civil War.  When the war began, loyalties
    were divided in Kentucky.  Men enlisted in both the Union and Confederate armies.
    Jack joined the 7th Kentucky Volunteer Infantry on the Union side.  He enrolled on
    August 20, 1861 and was mustered in at Camp Dick Robinson on September 22 as a
    sergeant in Company I.  The regimental history shows two engagements during his time
    of service: (1) October 21, 1861 - Battle of Camp Wildcat at Rockcastle Hills, Laurel
    County Kentucky, and (2) March 21-23, 1862 - Skirmish at Cumberland Gap, Tennessee.
    Jack was wounded, presumably at Cumberland Gap, and was discharged from the army on
    April 26, 1862 at Cumberland Ford, Kentucky.

    Goodspeed's History of Dubois County says he was in the war about eight months, but

    became disabled and returned home.  He was persecuted by the rebels in Kentucky, so

    he moved to Indiana in 1862.  See the entry for son Jesse for the entire text. 

   

    He appeared in the census in 1870 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  It lists

    Andrew (53), Rachel (44), Polly (23), Wiley (20), Jessie (14), Nancy (13), Thomas

    (4), Andrew (1) and Silas Mills (18), probably a relative of his brother-in-law

    William Mills. 

   

    Fred Dillard's memoirs state that "The broad acres extending from the Clements Ford

    southeastward and to Elon was once the property of Jack [Andrew Jackson] Cope.  In

    my recollection it belonged to two well known and prosperous brothers, Thomas and

    Andrew Cope.  They had married the Ford sisters Etta and Martha.  If both had had

    children they would have been double cousins but as it was Thomas and Etta had no

    children but they became almost father and mother to the large family of children

    of Andy and Martha.  These brothers liked baseball and fox hunting.  Many are the

    exciting baseball games I have seen on the different diamonds on this farm.  Elon

    played, Ellsworth, Wickliff, Newton Stewart, Dubois, Cuzco, Birdseye, English, and

    others.  They had the first greyhound that I ever saw and he was credited with

    catching foxes on the run.  This farm was made a modern dairy farm by their nephew,

    Elvin Cope, a teacher and leading civic leader and farmer of his generation."

   

    He died on December 15, 18735 in Orange County, IN.  He was buried on December 17,

    1873 at Elon Cemetery in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.  The cemetery was

    moved to Patoka Memorial Cemetery when Patoka Lake was created.

 

    Andrew Jackson "Jack" Cope Sr. and Winnie Lewis were married on December 7, 1844

    in Knox County, KY (book A, page 7).  Winnie Lewis was born about 1822 in North

    Carolina.  David Nelson reported that Winnie Lewis may have been related to

    Messenger Lewis.  She appeared in the census in 1850 in Knox County, KY.  She

    appeared in the census in 1860 in Stinking Creek District, Knox County, KY.  She

    died on February 14, 1862 in Knox County, KY.  Family stories report that Winnie

    Lewis Cope died while the family was en route from Kentucky to Indiana and that

    she was buried somewhere on the banks of the Ohio River.  However, Goodspeed's

    biography of her son Jesse reported that she died in 1862 in Kentucky and her

    husband remarried before coming to Indiana.  David Nelson reported that Andrew

    Cope's Civil War pension states that she died while he was in the service.  Given

    that she died in February and Andrew was not discharged until April, and Andrew

    remarried before coming to Indiana, the family story must be incorrect.  Andrew

    Jackson Cope and Winnie Lewis had the following children:

 

    26  i.    William Cope, born February 11, 1845.

    Andrew Jackson "Jack" Cope Sr. and Rachel "Sarah" Honeycutt were married on January

    26, 1863 in Knox County, KY.  Some records list the date as January 6.  Their

    marriage record posted on the Knox County, KY web site lists her as Rachel.  Other

    records contain both the names Sarah and Rachael; it is assumed that both names

    refer to the same person.  Rachel "Sarah" Honeycutt was born in 1826 in North

    Carolina.  She appeared in the census in 1870 in Jackson Township, Orange County,

    IN.  She appeared in the census in 1880 in Jackson Township, Orange County, IN.

    32  ii.   Andrew Jackson Cope Jr., born February 2, 1869.

    He immigrated before 1865 to Orange County, IN.  He was born about 1861 in Kentucky

    and Eleanor was born about 1865 in Indiana, so the family immigrated to Orange

29. Jesse Cope was born on September 11, 1855 in Barbourville, Knox County, KY.  He

    was a farmer and lumberman.
 

    Goodspeed's History Of Dubois County reported "Jesse Cope was born in Knox County,
    Ky., September 11, 1855, and is one of seven children born to Andrew J. and Winnie
    (Lewis) Cope, natives respectively of Kentucky and North Carolina.  They were married
    in Kentucky and came to Indiana in 1862.  The father was in the late war about eight
    months, but became disabled and returned home.  He was persecuted by the rebels in
    Kentucky, consequently he moved to Indiana at the above date.  The mother died in
    Kentucky in 1862, and the father married again and came here.  He died December 15,
    1873.  Our subject was early thrown on his own resources for a livelihood.  When
    about twenty-three years old he married and began farming, and has dealt quite
    extensively in the log and lumber business for a firm in Jasper.  He owns 333 acres
    of land, 100 acres under cultivation and the rest timber land.  May 29, 1879, he
    married Jeanette Beaty.  To them were born three children: John Elmer, Ada Anne
    and Everett E.  Mr. Cope is a member of the Masonic lodge and a firm and active
    Republican.  He and wife are members of the Christian Church." 

    In the History Of Orange County section on the town of Newton Stewart, Goodspeed
    reports that Jesse was an officer in the Newton Stewart Masonic Lodge, No. 432,
    in the 1880's.

    In the section of Fred Dillard's memoirs covering the people that once lived

    between Elon and Wickliffe, he reports "Due east of the narrows 1/2 mile and on

    the Wickliffe-Elon road stands the building marking the location of what was once

    a more imposing one.  It had previously been that of James Gass and his wife

    Elizabeth (Dillard).  Later it became that of Jesse Cope and his wife Nettie

    (Beatty) and their children Ada, Everett, Elvin, Andrew, Lee, and Agnes.  To

    give an idea of the goodness of these people I wish to record the following story.

    Andy and I were school mates in #10 school that stood at the top of the hill above

    this home.  As was the custom on March evenings after school I went home with Andy

    to spend the night.  We did the nightly chores and after supper went into the large

    living room to enjoy the large fireplace with his father and mother.  A storm came

    and there was keen thunder and lightning.  Finally the storm abated and there was

    a knock at the front door.  When it was opened there stood a man dripping wet with

    a two year old child on his shoulder and his wife with a small valise in her hand.

    The Copes took them in and while drying by the fire they told this story.  They

    were traveling with their household goods with a relative to a new home near

    Eckerty. North of Elon the wagon broke down and their relative was forced to take

    his horses and return.  They had walked the two miles along the muddy road through

    Elon and had encountered the terrible storm.  They were given supper, warm beds,

    and the next morning Mr. Cope took the man 'Thad Williams' to a neighbor, Oscar

    Kellams, and they with his team and wagon moved to the log house south of the

    Narrows and set them up to housekeeping again."

   

    He appeared in the census in 1860 in Stinking Creek District, Knox County, KY.  He

    Two children in the 1900 census - Dessie and Leland - were born after Richard Ford

    died.  David Nelson reported that he asked his aunt, Nancy Cope Ford's granddaughter,

    about this some years ago.  She gave him a chilling look and said, "Well, yes, you

    are bound to discover things if you go prying about."  She then said "Imagine the

    situation of a young widow in those times, trying to make ends meet to keep her

    family together.  It's known that people had to do certain things to keep the wolves

    from the door..."  She suspected that a local banker who might've held the note on

    the Ford farm might also be the father of the two, but they were given Richard's

    surname.  David also reported that family members knew Leland as "Charley E.",

    nicknamed "Turkey" Ford, so-called because he was tall and thin with red hair.

    Jefferson Township, Dubois County, IN.  She was listed in the Dubois County school

    lists Richard (34), Nancy (23) and Rachel (2).  Richard died on July 1, 1886 in
    Ellsworth, Dubois County, IN.  The Jasper, IN Courier (November 28, 1986) reprinted
    this story in their genealogy section, "On Thursday afternoon of last week about 3
    o'clock, the boiler of Bender Brothers, at Ellsworth, in Hall Township, in this
    county, exploded with terrific force, tearing the engine and boiler from their
    foundations, and hurling the latter through piles of lumber fifty yards, killing
    instantly Mr. Richard Ford, a farmer of that neighborhood, who chanced to be near
    the mill.  He leaves a widow and three young children.  Mr. Wyley Cope, who was
    working at the mill as a hand, was thrown 100 feet by the concussion, and was badly
    bruised and scalded; will probably die. [Note: the Jasper Courier of July 16, 1886
    reports that he did indeed die.]  Dr. G.W. Walker was sitting on some lumber talking
    to Ford at the time. He was thrown several yards, into lumber piles, scalded on one
    side, one arm broken, and badly bruised.  John  Bender, one of the owners of the
    mill, was badly scalded, but will recover.  Nicholas Bender, another of the owners,
    had some heavy lumber fall on one hand and was slightly scalded.  Lafayette Ellis
    was also slightly injured: he was thrown among the flying timber about 100 feet and
    his escape is almost miraculous.  The mill was a stationary  one; was several years
    old; having been bought by the Benders from the now notorious Archer gang of Martin
    county, one of whom hangs at Shoals today, and who ran it several years as a blind
    to their rascalities.  It is supposed carelessness in the supply of water caused
    the explosion."  Wheeler Nelson told David Nelson (June 11, 1988) that these sawmills

    were great gathering places for locals.  He said that Richard told his wife he was

    just going to run down to the store for a minute.  Wheeler also said that the only

    treatment for burns then was covering the victim with wet sheets.  Wheeler referred

    to Wylie Cope as "Uncle Wylie". He was buried at Elon Cemetery in Jackson Township,

    His World War I draft registration card (dated September 12, 1918) describes him as

    medium height and medium build.  Eyes and hair fields were blank.  His occupation

    was farmer.  His residence was French Lick.

   
    He died on January 5, 1933 in Orange County, IN.  The Springs Valley Herald (January
    5, 1933) reported "The body of Amos Cope was discovered in a ditch along highway 54
    just southwest of town early this morning.  The discovery was made by Hib Harris who
    was passing the spot about six o'clock.  A few minutes later Web Crowder arrived at
    the scene of the accident and although both men knew Cope well neither were able to
    identify him.  The victim's head was crushed so badly that identification was not
    possible until Coroner Holiday arrived about seven thirty and examined the contents
    of the dead man's pockets where identifying mail was found.  No witness of the
    accident could be found and although no statement was made by the coroner the
    condition of the body indicated that death was die to the victim being struck by a
    vehicle traveling at a fairly good speed.  The only tangible clue other than the
    crushed skull was a piece of door handle - obviously from a car lying near the body.
    About eleven o'clock this morning, five hours after the accident was thought to have
    happened, a truck belonging to Wm. S. Grigsby of West Baden, minus a handle of one
    door and having blood and small particles of bone clinging to its body led to the
    questioning of Grigsby who admitted that he had been to Hillham for a load of coal
    early this morning and passed the spot where the body was found at about the time
    of the accident occurred.  Grigsby denied any knowledge of the accident however,
    and claimed that if it was his truck that struck Cope he was unaware of it at the
    time.  Since the accident evidently occurred just at dawn and since there was a
    thick fog it is entirely possible that the driver of the death car was unaware that
    a man had been struck down.  This is possible if no part of the vehicle except the
    door handle struck the victim. The breaking of the handle would absorb part of the
    impact and a driver on the opposite side of the car could conceivably be ignorant
    of the tragedy.  Coroner Holiday has not given a verdict nor has any charges yet
    been placed against Grigsby although circumstantial evidence seems to definitely
    prove that the man was struck by Grigsby's truck.  The body was brought to W. V.
    Ritter and Son's undertaking parlors where it will be prepared for burial. No
    definite announcement of funeral arrangements has been made.  Cope, who is about
    fifty years of age, has been living at the home of his mother since becoming
    estranged from his wife.  He is survived by his wife, his mother and a brother,
    Dr. Clint Cope."  The Springs Valley Herald (January 12, 1933) reported "Amos Cope,

    son of Wiley and Lucinda Cope was born July 21, 1876 and departed this life in

178. Reid Cope Hagan was born on September 17, 1925 in Orange County, IN (book H-8,
     page 68).
    
     He appeared in the census in 1930 in French Lick Township, Orange County, IN.
    
     He served in the military in World War II. His World War II enlistment record
     shows that he enlisted on December 6, 1943.  Reid was a nose gunner in a B-24
     Liberator bomber.  His crew flew their Liberator from Roosevelt Field on Long
     Island, across the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, North Africa, the Middle
     East, then to India, where Reid spent his 19th birthday.  From there, they flew
     the "Hump" over the Himalayas into China, arriving in September 1944.  The food
     was horrible.  Donald Hagan remembers his mother packing small boxes with fig
     newtons, gum and other goodies to send to Reid.  He was in the 14th Air Force,
     headquartered at Kunming, China, although his outfit was stationed farther east.
     His squadron was charged with patrolling the South China Sea, interdicting Japanese
     shipping and destroying supplies intended for Japanese land forces still fighting
     in the interior.  The operation was called the China-Burma-India (CBI) Theatre.
     The 14th Air Force was the operational descendent of Claire Chennault's famed
     Flying Tigers.  By the time Reid entered China, most of the Japanese fighter
     force had retreated to the Homeland to defend against the B-29's that were laying
     waste to their cities.  However, they had to be watchful of anti-aircraft fire.
     These aircraft went on their patrols alone and were assigned a particular area of
     ocean to cover.  They carried about 18 hours of fuel and their missions were about
     16 hours in duration.  The B-24 had a ceiling of about 32,000 feet, so if a typhoon
     came in, they had to fly through it - the storms were too tall to fly over and too
     wide to fly around with limited fuel.  On one particular mission, the squadron sent
     two aircraft (Reid could not remember why).  To get home, they had to fly through a
     typhoon.  When they emerged, they were over Hainan (Hainandao) Island off North
     Vietnam, which was Japanese occupied, and the plane was immediately subjected to
     anti-aircraft fire.  While transiting the storm, the crew had left their battle
     stations and gathered in the fuselage behind the flight deck.  They were hit by at
     least one burst of flak, which took off a portion of one of the two vertical
     stabilizers and the rear gun turret, which made the aircraft very difficult to fly.
     They were low on fuel, so the pilot had feathered one prop, and they were lost. 
     The pilot ordered the crew to bail out while he stayed to try to land the aircraft,
     but the crew took a vote (very unmilitary of them) and told him they would all bail
     out together or they would all ride it down together.  They finally found a field
     (their comm gear was primitive and they had no contact with their home base), but
     they didn't know which side it belonged to.  The fuel gauges were on "E", so they
     landed.  The field turned out to be British.  No one knows what became of the
     second aircraft.  Another incident involved them arriving in the vicinity of their
     home field one dark evening and not being able to find it.  There were no landing
     lights.  The navigator was pulling his hair, positive he was in the right place.
     Again, fuel was low, one of two engines had been feathered, and nerves were frayed.
     Just when they were preparing for a crash landing, the runway lights came on.  The
     pilot made a hot descent and landed safely.  It turns out that the field commander
     had been warned that there were Japanese bombers in the area and had ordered lights
     out and radio silence.  They could hear the plane circling and the pleas on the
     radio, but would not answer.  When it became clear that the craft was running out
     of fuel and about to crash, the order was given to turn the lights on for a short
     period.  By the spring of 1945, no more complete crews were coming over. Replace-
     ments would come in by ones and twos. These people had to receive "on-the-job"
     training that the initial crews had received state-side prior to deployment.  Reid
     volunteered for these training missions.  People had to earn points to get rotated
     home.  Everyone had to accumulate around 300 hours to get out of the country and
     home.  The volunteer hours spent on training missions counted toward rotation home.
     Just as replacements came in by ones or twos, veterans left the same way, as
     sufficient points were accumulated.  By the time Reid was eligible to depart, he
     was competing with guys who were coming out the jungles of Burma after 3 or 4 years;
     those guys got first dibs on flights to the U.S.  One could opt for a berth on a
     ship, but some of those ships took 3 months to reach the U.S., due to stopovers in
     the Philippines, Australia, and Hawaii.  Reid kept haunting the Military Air
     Transport offices in India and finally got a seat on a flight to San Francisco,
     then to Indianapolis.  He rode a Greyhound Bus to French Lick, arriving about 4
     a.m. on July 4, 1945.  He deposited his duffle bag in front of the Star Store and
     walked home.  Walking out old Highway 145, he noticed something strange.  It
     finally dawned on him: trees, lush, full, trees.  Most of his training from September
     1943 to September 1944 had been in areas of the country where there weren't many
     trees; the area of China where he was based was barren.  Wood was a precious
     commodity; it was needed for fuel by the peasants.  Needless to say, his arrival
     home in those warm, predawn, hours was a cause for much joy.  He was about 10 weeks
     short of his 20th birthday.  Reid received the Bronze Star, the Air Medal, and
     possibly, the Distinguished Flying Cross.  Don Hagan was unable to locate any of
     these and Reid couldn't remember where they were.  His first wife took one of them
     for a memento.
    

     The Springs Valley Herald (April 22, 1948) reported "Reid Hagan, son of Luther Hagan

     of French Lick, filed for county treasurer on the Republican ticket and is deserving

     of the backing of his party.  Reid has lived in French Lick his entire life and is a

     graduate of the local high school.  He served as payroll clerk for the Midland

     Construction Company for nine months during which time he handled $2000 weekly

     payroll.  In service in the United States Army Air Force, Reid served as a staff

     sergeant for 25 months, eight months consisting of overseas duty.  He completed some

     300 hours in bombing missions over China.  He holds the Distinguished Flying Cross

     and the Air Medal and since returning from service has been affiliated with both the

     American Legion and VFW.  He is a young man of unquestionable integrity and good

     moral character, and his ability has been demonstrated his having successfully

     operated a drug business since his discharge in October 1945.  YOUTH SERVED THE

     COUNTRY WELL DURING THE CRISIS.  IT CAN SERVE IT AGAIN IF GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY OF

     HOLDING OFFICE."  Reid served two terms as Orange County Treasurer.

    
     Reid died on May 23, 2006 at the age of 80 in Paoli, Orange County, IN.  Don Hagan
     reported that Reid fell in his basement on May 19.  He hit his head on the stairs,
     resulting in a blood clot on the brain.  He was taken to the Orange County Hospital,
     where he died a few days later.  The Springs Valley Herald, May 31 2006) reported

     "Graveside services will be held at 4 p.m. Saturday at Ames Chapel Cemetery for

     She died on October 27, 1930 in Orange County, IN.  The Springs Valley Herald

     (November 13, 1930) reported "Beautiful indeed is that life of which nothing better

     can be said after death than has been repeated during life.  Such might well be

     said of Grace Dexter Flick McCarty, who closed her eyes upon the scenes of the

     world about 6 o'clock October 27, 1930 at the age of 18 years, 8 months and 16

     days.  Born to George A. and Lora Flick on February 11, 1912, she was the fourth

     of a family of twelve children, two of whom have preceded here to the great beyond.

     Grace was born near Newton Stewart in Orange County at which place she spent her

     childhood days with her parents, brothers and sisters, sharing the joys and sorrows

     as they came to their home.  During her girlhood days she attended school near her

     home where her dutiful and loving manners endeared her to schoolmates and teachers

     alike.  She was united in marriage to Lee McCarty on the 3rd of December, 1929.

     During their brief married life she was faithful and devoted to her husband. To

     this union was born one child who in its very infancy preceded its mother in death

     [Thelma McCarty Elliott reported Grace died in childbirth and the baby girl died

     also].  Grace was companionable, considerate, kind and loving always.  Truly it may

     be said that to know her was to love her.  The Great Master, whose motives we do

     not question has seen fit to call her home, but let us remember that He said, 'In

     my Father's house are many mansions. If it were not so I would have told you. I go

     to prepare a place for you and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come

     gain and receive you unto myself; that where I am there ye shall be also.'  She

     leaves to mourn her departure her husband, parents, two grandparents Lee King and

     Rutha Flick, nine uncles, ten aunts, seven sisters Esther, Edna, Ruth, Violet,

     Mary, Virginia and Maxine; two brothers Desco and Alva.  One of her brothers,

     Lawrence, preceded he death a little more than three years ago, at about thirteen

     years of age.  Besides these she leaves many more distant relatives and a host of

     friends who remember her with living kindness and tender memories."
