There are many old tombstones located within Chesterfield County, South Carolina. Sadly, a lot of the older tombstones have degraded, just as the one above, over time. It’s very important that we document exiting tombstones and post their photos on-line with FindAGrave, BillionGraves or others to preserve them for posterity. They should also be maintained locally in genealogical and historical societies.

Nancy Copeland married William Aaron Thurman, son of John Thurman and Anne Perkins, about 1825. This marriage year is based on the birth of their first born, a daughter,  named Rosa Ann, born in 1826. 

After the birth of eight children, Nancy Copeland Thurman died on 17 November 1843 at the age of 47.
