      Yes, that's the Jesse. BTW, I thought it was Martha Holland, not Matilda. I show a few more siblings. Want the treein fo I have? I'd love to correct mine or help you.
      I got this info from David Cope, probably the premier current Cope researcher.

    • Came to White Co. early in the 1800's. Received a land grant on Nov 05, 1814. Joined a company of Militia Infantry commanded by Col. Robert Steele in the Creek Indian War portion of the War of 1812. This allows proven descendants to become members of an exclusive heritage organization, General Society of the War of 1812 There is a Betsy Kethley buried here at Mt. Gilead (Mar 13,1817-May 30, 1854 that seems likely to have been the daughter of Jesse and Susannah [2]
