Citing this Record:

Was also able to find a WWI Draft Registration Card for an Alexander Coplin (and he signed it that way, no "X"), negro, born 1895 in Dawson, GA.

In your message you wrote that your ancestor, Luther James Copeland, was born in Dawson, Carry County, GA. I could not find a Carry County in GA, but there is a City of Dawson that has been the county seat for Terrell County, Georgia, since 1856. There is also a Dawson County with a county seat of Dawsonville. So I'm a bit confused on that. At any rate, those are the only 2 records I could find on this family, if they are the correct ones. What research have you done that you can share so we can help you better?
