PASSING OF YOUNG SOLDIER
Orin L. Copeland Died at Washington D.C., Thursday, June 19th.
Of the many young men who entered the military service from this community, the majority have returned to their homes and civil life. The great battles of the world war have been fought and won, but the price was great and the sacrifices have been many, both on the battlefield, and because of sickness. A large number of American men have made the supreme sacrifice, and among them was one of our own boys, Orin L. Copeland, who passed away at a hospital at Washington D.C., June 19th, after an illness of several months. He was in active overseas service and was taken to a hospital overseas and later brought to the States, arriving at New York, May 24, and later removed to Washington. During the last days of his illness, relatives were at his bedside. Orin was a young man with life full of promise for a successful, useful span. The sympathy of the community goes out to the young widow and little daughter, the parents and relatives in the hour of their great sorrow. We can but pay tribute to the soldier who gave his life in the service for his country. the remains arrived at Batavia Sunday morning and were taken to the home of Mrs. Copeland's parents north of town.

Note for: Eva Dorothea Leman, 24 JUL 1724 - 24 JUL 1798 Index
There is a substantial period of time between the probable date of Johannes's immigration (1751) and the probable date of his marriage (1755), when he was 27 years old. It is highly unlikely that he would have waited so long to marry unless he had spent all, or most of the pr4eceding few years as an indentured servant. Four or even six years would not have been an unreasonable length of time to work off the cost of his passage.
Few records of 18th century Pennsylvania marriages exist, and Johannes' is no exception. Baptismal records, land deeds, and side-by-side graves clearly prove that his wife was Eva Dorothea Leman. According to tradition, Jacob was their first son, though we have found no proof. If he was their son, as assumed, the probable date of their marriage would be 1775, a year before his birth. The only records of Johannes and Dorothea found in Pennsylvania are for three baptisms at the Augustus Evangelical Lutheran Church at Trappe, New Providence Twp., PA. Their daughter, Susanna Kessler, was baptized 22 Oct. 1758, with Susanna Jungling as sponsor. Their son, Johannes Kessler, was baptized 19 Apr. 1761, with the parents as sponsors. In 1762, they were the sponsors at the baptism of Susanna Jungling, daughter of Christian and Susanna. Sponsors at baptisms were usually relatives, and Susanna was almost certainly Dorothea's sister.
Presumably Johannes farmed in Pennsylvania, as that is what we know he did the rest of his live. However, he did not own any land of record there, probably because he could not afford to by any at this time. He apparently heard about the cheap land on the western frontier, probably from John Leman, who was no doubt Dorothea's oldest brother. John Leman acquired land on Great Pipe Creek, Frederick Co., MD in 1749, and his brothers George, Hans and Jacob mover there also, as did Christian and Susanna Jungling. About 1763 Johannes Kesler and his young family headed for this same area, approximately 100 miles on a straight line, but much farther by horse, over the mountainous terrain. On 25 Feb. 1764 "John Kaislaer" received a patent for 25 acres of land called "Good Will," near the present village of Tyrone, 5 miles southeast of Tanytown, and approximately 20 miles from Gettysburg, PA. When Carroll County was formed from Frederick and Baltimore Counties in 1837, this land was in the new county. Johannes' patent is on record in the Maryland Hall of Records in Annapolis.
On 22 Nov. 1769, he acquired from Valentine Baist 13.75 acres of "Friendship Agreement." On the dame date he and John Froshour acquired from Baist five additional acres of "Friendship Agreement," to be used solely for a church and school. On 15 Oct. 1770 John Casler acquired from Philip Beamer, for 5 shillings, part of a tract appropriately called "Redlands." It contained 59.25 acres, and was adjacent to "Good Will" (Deed Book N, pp. 457-8). His final acquisition in Maryland was 48 acres of "Runnymede," which he bought 4 June 1776 from Upton Scott, and Annapolis physician. All four farm tracts were sole to Zachariah Albaugh on 7 April 1791 for 447 pounds/2/6. The deed (Bk WR 9, p. 728) was signed John Kesler" by his mark in the form of a "K," as were his later deeds. His wife, Dorothy, appeared before two justices of the peace who noted that "being by us privately examined apart from and out of the hearing of her said husband she relinquished all her right and title to dower of, in and to the within mentioned lands and premised and said she did it freely and voluntarily without being compelled thereto by fear, threats of, or ill usage from her said husband, or for fear of incurring his displeasure." (While this was merely standard legal jargon, it does say something about the status of women 200 years ago.) Following this sale, Johannes and Dorothea went to Botetourt Co., VA, where the spent the remainder of their lives.

Laughter Speyerdorf is the largest local part of the city and lies southeast from new city in the Rhine level, whereby one must include the laughter Speyerdorferer forest approximately around the castle clip mountain, which lies in the Elmsteiner valley. Originally it concerned two villages, which united however already very early. The flat medal forest, by which wonderful cycle tracks lead, forms a strong contrast to the mountain forest for example also the cycle track new city Speyer. Between forest and Ackerrain one can admire still certain animal and plant types, which under special protection. A beautiful view of the panorama of the Haardt of mountains rounds the picture of laughter Speyerdorf off.
