Sharing Coppenbarger Photos with Cousins

I've recently reached out to several fairly close DNA matches on Ancestry. One turned out to be a second cousin once removed. Our common ancestors are Josiah Randolph Coppenbarger (1844-1934) and Elizabeth (Bennett) Coppenbarger (1849-1914) who are my great, great grandparents and his great grandparents.

We've been exchanging photos so both his family and mine have seen new Coppenbarger photos. I'm sharing the photos on my blog so other family members might discover them, too.

Please get in touch with me if you're related! You can leave a comment or email me at drleeds@sbcglobal.net !
