Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of a scrapbook that spans the years 1819 to 1855 and contains poems and quotations handwritten by Copp, along with pasted clippings from Savannah area newspapers. This item was originally called the David Dennison Copp Scrapbook. After a discrepancy concerning Copp's first name was discovered, an investigation into Laurel Grove Cemetery records and MS 965 (Colonial Dames Collection) resulted in a change in the collection's title.
