Biography of William H. Copeland
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Copeland, William H., first became associated with the Walter A. Wood Company in 1875, having prior to 1873 led a somewhat itinerant life. He was born at Holly, N. Y., son of the late Jonathan Copeland, who was for fifty years a clergyman of the Presbyterian church and whose chosen field of labor of necessity precluded fixed residence. Mr. Copeland is very highly esteemed in the village of his adoption for his many sterling qualities. Since 1892 he has been paymaster of the Walter A. Wood Company. In 1881 he married Miss Julia Burchard of this place, daughter of an early settler here and an old family of much note.
