The headstones below are those of Samuel Longenecker and his wife, Anna Shank, great-great grandparents of the submitter, Keith Longenecker. Regarding the condition of the Coppess Cemetery, Keith writes: "... the Coppess cemetery was in bad state of repair when I saw it [1997]. I had to uncover Samuel's headstone where it was buried four inches deep under the earth. The fences are in a poor state of repair and signs of cattle were everywhere. It will be lost if nothing is done."
