BiographyMary Eunice (daughter of Daniel Dennison and Eunice Waldo Copp), born Jan 29, 1833 or '34; living, 1899, at Washington, D.C. She married, Feb. 7, 1855, at Savannah, Aaron, son of Ezra and Elizabeth (Richardson) Wilbur, of Barnard, Vt.; born Dec. 12, 1821, at Barnard; died Dec. 5, 1869, at Savannah. Miss Copp was his third wife. He was president of the Home Insurance Company of Georgia, and agent for all the Southern States of the Knickerbocker Insurance Company and several other companies. During and immediately after the Civil War, he served on the staff of Gov. Joseph E. Brown as financial aid-de-camp, with the honorary title of colonel. Though a Union man, he was allowed to remain unmolested in the city throughout the war, when other Northerners were banished or compelled to enlist in the Southern army. During the reconstruction period, he labored incessantly to restore business confidence in the South, and so impaired his health that he succumbed to an attack of pneumonia in the 48th year of his life.
