The Coppage-Coppedge Family Association was formed in 1948 and after that
first meeting they began to collect information for the first chronicle.
A. Maxim Coppage and Dr. John E. Manahan authored the first chronicle
in 1955. At the point of finishing the book they had additional
information that did not get in the book of 1955. The information kept on
coming in, so we decided to update with a new publication. The second book
was authored by Dr. John E. Manahan and published in 1975.
As you can imagine with this type of publication it is never up-to-date at any
time. In 1995 our ex-officio genealogist took on the task of again
gathering information for a future (our third) publication. We set
deadlines many times to cutoff and print the book, but someone else would come
along with more info or pictures. We felt that each piece of data was
important and finally a deadline of June 1st of 1998 came and it was composed
and sent to the printer. The books are for sale to family
association members, general public and libraries for $45.00 a copy (postage &
handling included). Copies may be purchased by sending a check for $45.00
to the following address:

If you are a Coppage-Coppedge and can provide proof of your lineage, you may be
included in the next publication or supplement to the current Family Chronicle.
