Harrison Copp this is a work in progress
Born about 1824, Harrison was a farmer in Tioga County, Pennslvania. Helping clear
more than 100 acres that his father purchased nearly 200 hundred years ago.
As I started this search to find my family's roots I never imagined the history
I would uncover and the distant relatives that would find their way back to
Cherry Flats; French Mills or Covington, PA via a modern means, ie the internet.

|Broad Acres’ Ethel Copp celebrates 102nd birthday
See Obituary 2006
By Bryan G. Robinson
Mansfield Gazette, 25 January 2006, p.1B
“It ain’t a bit like it was when I was a girl.” When asked what had changed in the course of her lifetime, that was the first thing Ethel Copp of Broad Acres Health and Rehabilitation Center in Charleston Township, who celebrated her 102nd birthday on Jan. 18, said. Copp was born in 1904 at the home of her parents, Anna and Daniel Harding, on Cole Street in Wellsboro. As a girl growing up in Wellsboro, she said she remembered red brick running down Main Street and the Penn Wells Hotel was called the Cole House. The town had three saw mills, a cattle yard and later a silk mill, where she worked during the Depression. “It ain’t a bit like it was then,” she repeated. She said her father was a telegraph operator and that people would come into town on the train. She said her family lived in the same neighborhood as the cattle yard.
