If it were possible to copy the chemical/material form of a human, then, yeah, it would have all the memories and personality of the original.

Obviously, no one is anywhere close to accomplishing this. At most, they have "teleported" (or duplicated) a few clusters of atoms, and only in very special conditions (super-cooled, etc.)

But if it's possible to transport/duplicate the living body, then the mind and thoughts and memory and personality would be there too.
