     Louisa Wessells was born circa 1774 in Accomac County, Virginia.1 She was the daughter of Elijah Wessells and Sophia Clark. Louisa Wessells married Charles Copes circa 1799.1 Louisa Copes was the probable mother of Charles Copes and George Vessels Copes. I have no proof that Charles Copes the surgeon was the older brother of George Vessels Copes, but who else could he be? They both were born in Virginia and moved to Southwalk, in Philadelphia County. Charles is recorded in the Family Bible which is in our possession. Why would he be recorded in there if he wasn't George's brother? Would a cousin be included? Doubtful--there were others who were probably cousins already in Southwalk. Presume they are brothers. Charles Copes, the husband of Louisa, is a heir to his mother-in-law and she gives him the suffix of "Sr." in her will. It indicates there is a younger Charles in the same area. It usually, but not necessarily refers to his son. The Charles who later became a Navy surgeon had just been born. The mother's maiden name is WESSELLS which could become VESSELLS in some records. That is carried as George's middle name. Louisa was probably a free white female, age 26 and under 45, in Charles Copes's household, on the 1820 Census in Accomac County, Virginia.2

     Sophia was born in Accomac County, Virginia, circa 1732. Gail M . Walczyk gives a date of circa 1737, (source: (http://www.easternshoreheritage.com/processions/accomack/acc_9/household_10.htm) data ownloaded 18 Sept 2013). If this date is correct Sophia would have been 11 years old at her first marriage. I consider that unlikely.. She was the daughter of Elizabeth Clark. Sophia Clark married Mr. (?) West circa 1748. Sophia Wessells was named the executrix under the will of James Wessells on 7 April 1751 in Fisher's Island, Accomac County, Virginia.1,2 Sophia Clark married Elijah Wessells, son of James Wessells and Elizabeth Tolley, before 26 April 1768.3,4 Sophia was the executrix of Elijah Wessells's estate in Accomac County, Virginia, on 24 February 1794.3,4 Sophia Clark left a will on 3 October 1799 in Accomac County, Virginia. An abstract of her will reads:
