Copp, John B.
a Free-will Baptist minister, was born at Lebanon, Maine, March 1811; his father, also, being a minister. He united with the Church at an early age.

While teaching in the winter of 1836, in Corinna, a powerful revival commenced in his school and spread in different directions. In 1838 he went to St. Albans, where he resided nine years, preaching mostly in that place and in the adjoining towns. In July 1847, he went to Ashtabula County, Ohio. A part of his time was devoted to preaching in Geneva, Austinburg, Trumbull, and other places. In 1853 he removed to Flushing, Mich., where he died, November 10, 1855.
