  • Notes 
    • Sarah Copeland Webb was the daughter of William and Mary Copeland. Her husband was Rev. Jeremiah Webb. She was the mother of twelve children.

      Her obituary reads as follows:

      Sister Sarah Webb, daughter of William and Mary Copeland and wife of Rev. Jeremiah Webb, was born and raised in South Carolina and emigrated to Tennessee in 1817, embraced religion and joined the Methodist Church in which she lived an acceptable and useful member more than forty years and died February 18, 1858 in White County in her sixty-fourth year. She was a subject of deep affliction for twelve months before her departure but always evinced that spirit of resignation in which grace triumphed over human weakness. Not content with a mere nominal relationship to the Church, or the experience of the past as the ground of her hope, her anxious soul longed and struggled for full redemption in the blood of Christ and she often expressed unshaken confidence in God as the medium of all spiritual bliss. She conversed freely with the members of her family about her heavenly home, often expresssing an earnest "desire to depart and be with Christ". The future happiness of her children, three or four of whom were unconverted, was a source of great anxiety and often served as a serious obstacle to the depth of her own enjoyments. But when the final summons came, she was ready and urged her friends to pray that she might be relieved from suffering. As the soul struggled to be released from the frail casket, her faith grew strong and commanding and with the words of the dying martyr on her lips "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit" she bade adieu to earth to join the sainted throng above.

      Sister Webb was a good woman and "full of the faith and the Holy Ghost" . She has written her own epitaph in the hearts of those who knew her. Her Christian course and her undeviating ?__________? in every relation constitute the monuments of her mortal life, the memorials that suggest and perpetuate her virtue to those that survive her; and in following her as she followed Christ our happiness is forever sealed. May her prayers and good example serve as instruments in the conversion of her children and may the links in affection's chain that have been broken on earth be reunited in Heaven. J. W. Tarrant (or Tallant) [4, 6]
