      Paulina Copeland and Col David Cawlfield (Florida Indian Wars). Where
      were they married (~1840) and or where did they live?

      Col Cawlfield returned from ?? after Paulina and child died to marry
      Olena Copeland in 1852. Then they resettled in Coryell Co., Texas.

      Cawlfield and Snodgrass connected thru maternal line.
      Thank you

        In 1851, David Cawlfield applied for Bounty Land for his service in Seminole
        Indian War. Cawfield stated he was 48 years old in 1851 and declared:
        "He was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Service of the United States and
        commanded a Battalion of Jackson County Volunteers. He was mustered into
        service on Sept 8, 1836, at Claysville, AL, and was mustered for discharge
        on Sept 11, 1837, at Bellefonte, AL."
        Mrs. Woodall also stated:
        "Bounty Land Warrant 14167 for 160 acres was issued to David for his
        service. David Cawlfield was first married to Mary Ish who died eight
        months later; this was in 1834. After his Florida War service he married
        Orlena Copeland. They went to Texas, settled near Ft. Gates, later
        Gatesville, in Coryell County. David died there on March 17, 1886. On Aug
        16, 1893, Orlena applied for a Widow's Pension under the Act of July 27,
        1892. She stated David was born in Bedford County, TN, and was a merchant
        before the Seminole campaign. She was approved for a pension of $8 per
        month. Orlena died near the close of 1902."
        The 1850 Jackson County, AL census shows David Cawlfield, age 45, a farmer
        with Paulina Copland, age 35, in his household. Also listed were Laura or
        Luisa (census film difficult to read), age 7, and William, age 1. Since
        these children are listed under Paulina Copland (Copeland), it appears their
        last name was also Copland/Copeland. David's neighbors were all men known
        to have purchased land in the Long Island area just east of Bridgeport, AL.
        In 1852, David was married by T. Boyd Foster, Justice of the Peace, who
        lived a short distance southeast of Stevenson, AL. I have often wondered
        if Paulina Copland in the 1850 census was the same as the Orlena Copeland
        recorded on David Cawlfield's marriage bond. Census takers were famous for
        spelling names as they heard them or interpreted their pronunciation. I
        have never seen the name Paulina Copland/Copeland in any Jackson County
        record other than the 1850 census. The only other Copeland female recorded
        in Jackson County marriages between 1851 and 1871 was the Elizabeth A.
        Copeland who married James Edwards on Nov 19, 1852, by Andrew McCoy who also
        lived in the Stevenson, AL area.
