Cooper Family Trees   (updated Thursday, July 31, 2014 6:19 AM by SCM)

 

Members of the Male Cooper DNA Group in the furtherance of family history research have chosen to share the information on their family trees with other members of the Group. We strongly encourage this as it is the best way to help all of us connect the Y DNA matches to our other genealogical pedigree data.    

 

Marker values in the Y Results table have been sorted by matching markers into sections that have been designated as Lineage Groups. The marker values determine the lineage groups, not the known family tree. These new lineage group titles have been added to the Family Trees on this page.

 

The order of the Cooper Family Trees has been arranged by lineage groups to keep participants with matching DNA markers together. Individual trees may be locate by searching with Kit # , kit owner name , or any individual name .

2 - Theopholus Cooper (1815 VA? - 1888 KS) - Elizabeth Parrish

3 - Ezekiel Cooper (1838 IN - 1915 CA)

4 - Courson Royal Cooper (1881 KS - 1949 CA)

5 - Donald Courson Cooper (1914 CA - 1951 CA)

 

 

1 - John Cooper was born Dec 11, 1782 in Virginia. He died bef 1840 in Va or Indiana. He married Jane (unknown) bef 1808 in Virginia or NC. She died after 1860 Census in Iowa.  Not much is known about John Cooper other than he was born in Virginia and married Jane. She was widowed before 1840. They must have come to Indiana very early after the area opened up. She is in 1840 census in Momtgomery Co. Indiana alone with children.  Their known children included Henry and Theopholus; Henry was 7 years older than Theopholus.

 

2 - Theopholus Cooper according to family tradition, was born in 1815 in Virginia; however one census states he was born in Pennsylvania. His denial for service in the Civil War papers says he was born in Grayson Co. Virginia. He is in Indiana before 1835. He married Elizabeth Parrish in 1836 in Putnam Co Indiana. He moved his family to the new territory of Iowa by 1848. Then by 1865 they all moved to Kansas, stopping along the way in Missouri. He died in 1888 in El Dorado, Butler Co. Kansas. She died in 1894 in Kansas.

 

3 - Ezekiel Cooper was born Feb 21, 1838 in Indiana. He moved to Iowa after 1846 with his parents. He was about 8 years old and next to the oldest in the family. He died Mar 8, 1915 in Los Angeles, Ca.. He married Elizabeth Layton in 1861 in Marion Co Iowa. She was born Sept 1845 in Illinois. She died in Jan 1925, LA Calif.

 

4 - Courson Royal Cooper was next to the youngest of the family. He was born Feb 11, 1881. Most of his siblings were born in Johnson Co, Kansas. But they moved to El Dorado, Butler, Co Kansas about 1877 and  he was born there Feb 11, 1881. Sometime after the grandfather Theopholus Cooper died in 1888, most of the families moved west. Courson was probably in his teens. I have not found him in the 1900 census yet. I looked in Oregon where I know the family lived in Brownsville and Courson went to college in Springfield, Oregon but they were not there in 1900. They were not in Los Angeles yet and they had already left Kansas. I am still looking, and think I might find them in Washington State. Some of the Coopers were in Washington in the 1900 census. He married Florence Belle Urmy In July 1910 in Salina, Kansas. She was born Jan 1, 1884 in Salina, Kansas and died Nov 6, 1982 Bremerton Wa.

 

5 - Donald Courson Cooper was born Nov 6, 1914 in LA Calif where he died on Dec 16, 1951.

I. John Adam Cooper (ca. 1736 - May 1778) Died in Berkeley Co., WV - Elizabeth Stroop.

 II. (a) Henry Cooper (1760-VA - March 6, 1820) (son) Died in Montgomery Co., KY - Catharine (LNU)

 II. (b) William Cooper (1785 VA - Unknown) (son) Migrated to Putnam Co., KY and on to WI.

III. Richmond Cooper (1799 KY - 1840) (son of Henry 1760) Died in Calloway Co., KY - Katharine Motley.

IV. William Franklin Cooper (July 1828 - Jan 1900) (son) Died in Calloway Co., KY - Sarah Jane Jenkins.

V. Thomas Richmond Cooper (Dec. 1853 - May 1921) (son) Died in Calloway Co., KY - Sarah Jane Haneline.

 

As to the questions regarding John Adam Cooper, this is where our research has stagnated.  We know there was a name change with John Adam Cooper. Apparently his name previously was Keiffer or some variation of that spelling.  We have ship's records of 2 Keiffers sailing on the Bilander Townsend ,1735 and there is the possibility that Vincent Keiffer on that ship could be a relation.  We do not know if John Adam Cooper was born in the new world or came to America after birth somewhere in Europe.  We know that he married Elizabeth Sroop (various spellings here  also) and her father was William Stroop.  There is a good deal of genealogy on the Stroop family, but only one entry where Elizabeth marries John Adam Cooper.  We know there is a potential relationship with some of the Coopers of the Coopers Mountain area in West Virginia, but since there are at least 3 distinct families of Coopers there, we don't know which one is ours.  We also know that there were 3 brothers who fought in the French/Indian war in Western Pennsylvania and that possible John Adam was one of them.  We also know that his wife Elizabeth was listed as a Patriot for helping the colonist during the war but nothing else.

 

[NOTE: DNA has linked this family to Valentine Cooper born 1745 in MD.]

My Cooper Ancestors

By Ellis T. Cooper Jr.

December 11, 2006

 

In recent times, I have had my DNA tested and find that I match with Roger Keefer of South Carolina who died in Feb 2006. I believe his ancestor may have been Frederick, possibly a brother to my George Keefer/Cooper described in this message. He changed his name from Keefer to Cooper in 1777 at Frederick, Maryland. If anyone has info about George parents and his brother, I would appreciate receiving any info available.

 

My father was Ellis Cooper, Sr. born 1902 near Louisburg, Kansas. His parents were Edwin Rinehart Cooper and Sarah Gertrude Offutt Cooper. They had five sons: Vernon, Kenneth, Ellis, Edwin and Jess Cooper. Edwin's ancestors were James Ellis Cooper and Elizabeth Heffelbauer Cooper who were married in Capon Bridge W. Va. James and Elizabeth had sons Herbert, Edwin and Donald, daughters Blanche, Emma and Anna who died at a young age [at]16.

 

James Ellis Cooper parents were Jacob Cooper and Anna Park Cooper. Jacob was born Nov 10, 1799 near Capon Bridge W. VA. He is buried I the Lovett Cemetery near Capon Bridge. Jacob had brothers Evan Park Cooper, Lycurgus Cooper and Asa Cooper. Their daughter was Martha Ann.

 

Jacobs's parents were John Cooper and Mary Magdalena Rinehart Cooper. They had children as follows: Jacob, Joel, Samuel, Solomon, Amos and daughter Amy.

 

John's parents were George Kueffer/Kieffer/Keefer who changed his name to Cooper in 1777 in Frederick, MD. He married Marry Ruckman and in 1791 or 1792 migrated to Hampshire County VA. Now. W.VA. He and his family became owners of several hundred acres of land today called Coopers Mountain. George and several of his family members are buried there, is daughter Elizabeth married Jacob Millslagle and his daughter Catherine married Jacob Ruckman. George had sons John, Adam and Christian and daughters Elizabeth and Catherine who was known as Cathy.

 

I have George being born in 1729 in Switzerland, his brother Rudolph was born in 1727 and sisters, Elizabeth b. 1731 and Katrina b. 1733 all born in Switzerland. They left Switzerland in 1734 but did not arrive in America until mid 1750s. Most of the Swiss connection was developed by a grandson of Evan Park Cooper by the name of Norman Emerick of Baltimore, MD. Norman is now deceased or no longer has his faculties abut hm. Norman developed that George his siblings were the children of Hans Dubendorffer Kueffer b. 1701 and Lisbeth Keller. Hans was from in Dubendorf thus the name Dubendorffer. This info is contained in the book titled LIST OF SWISS EMIGRANTS IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY TO THE AMERICAN COLONIES, by ALBERT BERNHARDT FAUST; AB, PhD AND GAIUS MARCUS BRUMBAUGH; MS and MD. This was published 1972 with much of the Swiss information coming from the archives of Switzerland.

 

Why George changed his name to Cooper, we have not been able to ascertain. How my DNA matched with H. Roger Keefer, I can only speculate that George brother Rudolph was an ancestor of H. Roger Keefer.This is the way I have it. If not accurate, it is because I have been misinformed somewhere along the way. We are sure of the accuracy back to and including George but beyond that we are not positive. If anyone can correct me, please do so.

7 - Mark Allen Cooper (1948 - Living) - Mary Jane Higgins (1958 - Living)

 

Joseph Cooper b. ca 1795 d. after 1860 Came as a very small child to Claiborne Co., TN likely from Greenbrier Co., WV. Married and his farm was on the Powell River in the Head Of The Horse Hollow. In Feb 1834 while living in Knox Co., KY sold his holdings in Claiborne Co., TN. By 1835 he was living in Harlan Co., KY on Yellow Creek, in what is now Bell Co., KY and was then living in Pulaski Co., KY by the 1850 Census.

 

Others Cooper's living in Pulaski County do not match this Y-DNA profile.

 

In the 1850 US Census, Kentucky, County Pulaski, Division N2, call No. M432/217, page 129, Dwelling 789, Family 789, show a Joseph Cooper age 53 male white farmer real estate 400, born VA, can't read or write; Elizabeth age 53 female white born VA, can't read or write; Archibald age 17 male white born KY; Sterling age 13 male white born KY, school; within a year Daniel age 10 male white born KY, school; within a year Henry age 8 male white born KY; and Armilda age 6 female white born KY.

 

The family moved to Putnam Co., Indiana in1852 and is listed in the 1860 Census. Joseph's sons, Archibald, Sterling Harrison and Daniel Cooper, all severed in the Union Army from Indiana. After the war Archibald moves his family to Delaware Co., IN, Sterling moves his family to Oklahoma and Kansas. Daniel remains in the Putnam County Indiana area and is my direct ancestor. Nothing is known of Henry Cooper or Armilda Cooper but Armilda could be the Ferraby Cooper listed in the 1860 Census of Putnam Co., IN in Joseph's household. Henry may have died at an early age, a unknown.

*Please note: These two could possibly be the same person; however, marriage record in 1822 (Bracken Co., KY) says he is 21; census records show two men of this name in 1840 census in Nicholas Co. KY (adjoined Bracken Co. at that time); this William Bailey Cooper also appears on several census records from 1850 on in Robertson Co. (formed from Bracken and Nicholas Counties) with birth dates from 1790 to 1801. Recently discovered newspaper article from Nicholas Co., KY says he was born in Stafford Co., VA, this date.

 

Note on first William Bailey Cooper: Recently found newspaper clipping from Carlisle, Mercury Sept. 11, 1879: Mt. Olivet News [currently in Robertson Co. formed from Nicholas and Bracken]

 

"Uncle Baily Cooper, of this county, is nearly ninety-seven years of age, was born in Stafford County, VA., January 20, 1783. when quite a young man he emigrated to Kentucky and settled on Lawrence Creek, Mason County. He raised a large family of boys, some of them have grayer heads than their father, and look quite as old. The old man is still hale and hearty, made a hand in the harvest field quite recently, and never was sick in his life, don't know what the headache is. He prefers a bowl of sour milk for breakfast in preference to coffee or tea, has chewed tobacco moderately all his life, and takes a dram when he can get it. He never had any education and is quite a poor man. He can make a good basket and was in town the other day soliciting orders in that line. He says he was in his prime at fifty years of age, and never was whipped by any one. He was well acquainted with Simon Kenton and other pioneers of Kentucky, and remembers well when Washington died in 1799."

 

Also, another newspaper article published 7 Feb 1884 in Mt. Olivet, Robertson County, KY states: "Old Bailey Cooper who was widely known in this section, died in this county on 5th inst., at advanced age. Deceased was at various times an inmate of the county poorhouse. He was one of the few remaining survivors of the War of 1812 in Robertson county."

 

*** His DNA matches Mark Allen Cooper and Ronald LeRoy Cooper which seem to go back to John Jackson Cooper.

The fact that your Coopers went back and forth from Tennessee to North Carolina is interesting. The DNA 37 markers are from my uncle, who was, of course, the son of Carl Cooper and Dora Bryant. Your markers and his are Very close so there should be something to it. I hope we can find out sooner or later.

1791 David Cooper (Earliest Known Ancestor): Nothing is known of David's parents or siblings, nor of his early years. But on Feb. 26, 1814, David was drafted in the War of 1812, and served as an Infantry Sergeant in Captain McMillan's Company of Pennsylvania Volunteers. He entered the service at McKesson, Adams County, PA. He was discharged from service on August 24, 1814. His marriage to Martha Hinkle produced ten children, four boys and six girls. By the 1850 census the family had relocated to Wayne County, Ohio. Twice (1850 and 1855) he was granted 80 acres of land by the government. He and Martha were buried together in Wooster, OH. [Sources: (book) The Coopers in America, 1791 to 1954; War Department Records; census records; family Bible; Wooster Cemetery.]

John Albert Cooper lived for a period in the 1850s in the somewhat rough and tumble Doylestown, OH, and it is believed this is where he married. We have no knowledge of his wife but they had eight children together, four boys and four girls. For only one of the boys do we have much information beyond their names. Son Louis B. Cooper went to Oklahoma and raised a family of at least six children. John Albert's other three sons (about whom nothing more is known) were named George, Frank and Benjamin.

1825 David Cooper left a written manuscript of his life story, detailing his adventurous California Gold Rush experiences and much other information. He married Amy Ann Lowe in 1853, and they had six children, four of whom were boys. One died in his youth, and of the remaining three, William Henry was the only male to have children of his own.

Louis B. Cooper and wife Magnola [unknown] had at least six children including four sons named Sheldon, Robert, Isaac and William. In Oklahoma Louis proved a mining claim at Piedmont, where he settled to raise his nuclear family.

 

William Henry Cooper was born in Milbrook, OH, (1854) to parents David and Amy (Lowe) Cooper. He was a carpenter, carriage maker, and
construction contractor, and lived in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. He married Eva Christina Heffley in 1878, and they had three children. The only girl died at a young age, and the two sons were named Louis Herbert, and William Leroy. William Henry Cooper died at Kankakee, IL, and is buried at Rochester, IN.

Louis Herbert Cooper was born at Rochester, IN, (1879) to parents William H. and Eva (Heffley) Cooper. He is also buried at Rochester. Louis married Estella Henderson in 1907 and they had one son, William Harold Cooper, born in 1912.

Benjamin Waldo Cooper was the ninth and last child of Casper and Rebecca (Edgerton) Cooper. He was born in Freeport, KS, in 1884, and was still living there in 1953. They had four children: Sylvia (married Harold Francis, having one child of their own named Kenneth); Wayne (married Esther [unknown] and had one son, whose name has been lost); Imogene (married William Wisely, and had two children, Beverly Kay, and Roger); and Elizabeth Grace (married Ray Morgan and had one child, Ray Jr.).

Vinton L. Cooper married Alice Jess and they lived in Bluff City, KS, in the 1950s. They had at least two sons, named James and Bobby Dean. This line just opened up new information through a descendant and that information is pending.

David Casper Cooper married Fairy Spurgeon and they had (at least) five children, named Irene, Mildred, William, Eldon, and Barbara. David was the son of William Casper Cooper, and grandson of Casper and Rebecca (Edgerton) Cooper. Nothing more is known of this David's immediate family nor of the lives or whereabouts of his children.

4 - Isaac Isaiah Cooper (1876 - 1961 VA) - Ada Elizabeth Tidwell Barbour (1876 - 1954 VA

 

Iles Cooper (1776-1868) was probably born out of wedlock in Franklin Co., VA, because he went by the surname Huff before Cooper. His father may have been Isles Cooper of Franklin Co., VA, who was in the American Revolution and was married to Sarah Monk. She said on the pension application that they were married in Montgomery Co., VA, but there is no record. It is also thought that Iles Cooper is a descendant of Isles Cooper of Currituck Co., NC by one of his wives Susannah Sanders through their son Arthur Cooper who was in Franklin Co., VA early.  So far, Iles Cooper's (1776-1868) ancestry has not been proven.

2 - George B. Cooper (1782 VA - 1861 KY) - Susannah Hancock Lee (1797 VA - 1865 KY)

3 - Joseph C. Cooper (1830 KY - 1879 TX) - Camillia Frances Floyd (1843 OH - 1919 OK)

4 - John Marshall Cooper (1873 KA - 1961 OK) - Dolly Woodward (1887 NE - 1977 OK)

5 - Lloyd George Cooper (1923 OK - Living)

 

2 - George B. Cooper was born December 14, 1782 somewhere in Virginia. The first official record found shows him in Pulaski County, KY. in 1812. His name appears on the 1812 tax rolls with Margaret who I believe was his mother. MargaretÕs name appears on the 1809 tax rolls as widow of William. In 1818 and 1819 KY land records show that George B bought land-adjoining land owned by Margaret Cooper. In two separate books on the history of Pulaski County Kentucky George B Cooper is listed as a member of the Kentucky Legislature from Pulaski County in 1819, 1820 and 1821. The 1820 KY census show George B was the owner of four slaves; his 1861 will also mentions his slaves. He married Susannah Hancock Lee, born September 1, 1798 in Nominy, Westmoreland County, Virginia, a 5th cousin of Robert E Lee. Their marriage bond was issued in Pulaski County, KY December 10, 1822. They had 10 children. Also in the History of Pulaski County George B is listed as an elder and in charge of the finances of the Pisgah Presbyterian church. I have assumed from that and other information George B was somewhat educated for his time. In about 1832 or 1833 the family moved to Lincoln County KY. George B Cooper died January 31, 1861 in Lincoln County and was according to his will, was "discreetly buried in my family burying ground in my apple orchard with my deceased children."

 

3 - Joseph C Cooper was born in Pulaski County, KY in 1830 he was the fourth of ten children born to George B. and Susannah Cooper. He is listed in the subsequent census with the family near Hustonville, in Lincoln County, KY. In his fatherÕs January 1861 will Joseph C was named to superintend the family farms for his mother and sisters. One of his jobs was to have control of the slaves. On October 9, 1861 Private Joseph C, Cooper age 31 mustered into the 4th Kentucky Mounted Infantry, Company A, in Lincoln County KY. Joseph C married Camillia Frances Floyd in Knox County Tennessee on March 1, 1864. In the 1870, census Millie and Joseph were living in Lincoln County Kentucky in the Highland Precinct, across the county from Hustonville, his home in 1861. They had three children Floyd 5, born 1865 in Illinois, Walter 3 born 1867 in Tennessee, and Fannie 1, born 1869 in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. In spite of the hardship of travel the family obviously moved often. My Grandfather, John Marshall Cooper was born in a covered wagon July 10, 1872 in Salina, Kansas. The story is that his parents were with a wagon train on the way to from Kentucky to Oregon or maybe California. Because of his birth, they dropped out of the wagon train. They eventually turned south and settled in Collin Co, Texas. Joseph C Cooper died probably in 1879 when my grandfather John Marshall Cooper was 6 years old.

 

4 - John Marshall Cooper grew up on a farm on Collin County and later Cooke County, Texas. Both these counties are in North Texas. In 1889, at the age of 16 John M rode his horse to Guthrie, Indian Territory (now OK) to try and acquire land in the Land Run, He was unsuccessful and rode back to Texas. He spent the night at a stage stop owned by a Mr. Birch, in White Bead, Indian Territory (now OK). In 1894 he migrated with his mother Camillia, brother George Floyd and sister Fannie to the Washita River Valley in Indian Territory (now OK). John farmed 1200 acres for Mr. Birch in Neil Switch (near Lindsay). Camillia & Fannie ran a boarding house in Paul's Valley. Dolly Woodward and her mother Jenny Thompson Woodward worked in the boarding house. Jenny and Dolly moved to Neil Switch to keep house for John and his farm hands. John and Dolly married in 1903. They had 13 children. My Mother Lela Florene Cooper, #3 and the first daughter was born February 21, 1907 in Neil Switch. The family moved to Maysville, OK in June 1907. My uncle Lloyd George Cooper was #8, fourth son.

4 - Cader Cooper was the youngest of John and Nancy's children, born 1796, according to his son's Bible, in probably Thickety, Spartanburg, SC. Why he left SC for KY is not entirely known, but from historical context one might surmise it was due to land development in the frontier region. From land records in Christian Co., KY, we find that Cader owned land "to the state line" in the south western part of the county. On 25 December 1816 he married Sarah Byars, daughter of Stripling Byars. Twelve children were born to this union. By 1823 we find Cader purchasing a land grant in Jefferson Co., AL. More were added in 1824. In 1830 his son Sylvester was born in Jefferson County, AL.

5 - Sylvester Cooper married Amy Harriet "Hattie" Marshall, also from Jefferson Co., AL about 1850. Both of her parents had come from NC. Sylvester was a farmer, and was apparently following his grandfather's trail west, when in 1854 his son Cornelius (first name John) was born in Chickasaw Co., MS. Six of their seven children were already born when Sylvester took up arms for the Confederacy and fought with his local unit, the Buena Vista Rifles. He fought valiantly across both sides of the Mason-Dixon line, but was minus a leg when he returned to his family. That didn't stop him, though. By 1870 he had loaded his family to begin their trek to Texas. His last son was born in 1871 in McDade Co., on the way. His final destination was DeWitt Co., TX, where he farmed until his death. He and Hattie are buried in the Hebron Baptist Church Cemetery in northeast DeWitt County, TX.

6 - John Cornelius Cooper was a farmer and a blacksmith in DeWitt Co. TX. He married first Elizabeth Tankersley about 1875 in the Burns Station community, outside of Cuero. David Cooper was born to this union in 1876. Sometime before 1890 Elizabeth died, and about 1890 Cornelius married Nicholena King, who was called Lena. Lena's sister, Fannie, married George Chisholm of the Chisholm Trail. Cornelius died in 1935 and is buried in the Old Clinton Cemetery in DeWitt County.

7 - Monroe Cornelius Cooper was born in 1891. He married Emma Scogin, from Hopkins Co. TX, in Cuero, DeWitt Co., TX on 23 August 1913. They farmed in the Verhelle area of DeWitt County. They are buried in Memory Gardens Cemetery in Cuero.

8 - Winston "Pete" Cooper was born 26 June 1920 in DeWitt Co., TX. Having no middle initial, he assumed the name of Pete, which stuff with him thereafter. He married Ethel R. Avants on 1 March 1942. While Pete was busy storming the beach at Normandy on D-Day 1944, Ethel was back home, busy giving birth to their second child and first son. Pete sustained injuries in the War, which earned him a Purple Heart, and the inoperable shrapnel remained lodged dangerously close to his spine for the rest of his life. Pete died in November of 1998 from complications of emphysema. Ethel followed him in June of 1999, after a battle of her own with breast cancer. They are both buried in the Hebron Baptist Church Cemetery in DeWitt County, TX

9 - Winston "Glen" Cooper was born in Yoakum, Lavaca Co., TX on the 6th of June 1944. He married Nancy Jo Bray in Falfurrias, Brooks Co., TX on 12 June 1964.

The list above is a proven list back to my furthest known ancestor back in time.

 

My 25-Marker Test reveals that my Cooper-line is the same Cooper-line of James Fenimore Cooper, although not directly. My oldest known ancestor is older than JFC.

 

Isaac is shown in the tax records of Bladen County, NC in 1763 and went on to Wrightsboro GA about 1770. They left the Quaker colony about 1805 and passed through TN and on to Ohio.

 

Benjamin went on to IN and Joel settled in Putnam County In about 1830.

 

Joel Sanders was married five times, was an assistant surgeon at Cumberland Gap during the civil war, lived in IN, MO, then back to IN and chose to die in Kansas City, MO. He is buried with his third wife.

 

Eugene R. married Lucy at her father's home in El Paso TX , in 1920 they drove from St Paul MN to El Paso TX in a Stearns Knight touring car camping along the way.

 

My father Eugene Jr. was but 18 months old at the time and his grandmother Christine's mother Julia Carroll was along at the age of 79. It was quite the experience. Eugene Jr. became a draftsman for Allison Division at General Motors despite only an 8th grade education and was named on several patents from work on the Turbo-prop engines they produced.

 

I was born in Boone County, IN, served 7-yrs in the US Navy during the Vietnam War and am now retired from several jobs in electronics.

 

My quest is to find the link from Isaac on back to PA and prove the family lineage back to England. Thanks for all your help with the Cooper Lines.

1 - WILLIAM COOPER: The first appearance for William Cooper, husband of Mary Harrison, in Granville County, NC, was the acquisition of a tract of land on Nutbush Creek in 1765. William Cooper owned property on Nutbush Creek from October 19, 1765 until January 17, 1775. [Granville County Deed Records] William reported that "when Daniel Boone was exploring Kentucky he was with him...when the Kentucky lines were marked out, he was one of the number, though his name is spelt Cook." [J. W. Cooper letter of August 14, 1856, to son (William King Cooper)] Some historical publications identify a William Cook or a William Coole with Daniel Boone in 1769, when D. Boone made his first trip to KY with John Findley and others. William Cooper, husband of Mary Harrison, probably was the William Cooper who planted the first corn crop in the Clover bottom on Otter Creek, near Fort Boonesboro, KY, in 1775 or 1776. In 1780 and 1781, that William Cooper was granted title to three (3) tracts totaling 2,400 acres on the left hand fork of Otter Creek. Otter Creek is a tributary of the Kentucky River and lies in present day Madison County, KY, near the town of Richmond. William Cooper claimed he fought at the battle of Guilford Courthouse, March 15, 1781 and in other revolutionary war battles. [Letter of Aug. 14, 1856] One researcher has reported that when the James Harrison family moved to SC after the Revolutionary War, William Cooper and Mary "Polly" Harrison Cooper moved with them to the Harrison plantation at Fairforest and continued to live there until Harrison sold the plantation in 1790.

2 - JOHN COOPER was born about 1763 in Granville County, NC, and sometime after the American Revolution, moved with his family to Union District, SC. Some researchers have reported that John Cooper's brother, Elijah Harrison Cooper, moved to Union District at an earlier date along with his Uncle John Harrison and his family. John Cooper married about 1791 in Union District, SC, to Abigail Bobo, the daughter of Lewis Bobo and Sarah Solomon. In 1796, Lewis & Sarah Bobo conveyed a 100 acre tract to John Cooper for the consideration of 50 pounds Sterling. One of the witnesses to the deed was a Samuel Simpson. [Union Dist., SC Deed Book G, pages 287-289] Probably, shortly after that transaction, John Cooper, along with other families from Union District, moved to Kentucky.* John Cooper appears on the 1806, 1807 & 1808 Tax Lists for Livingston County, KY. John Cooper's daughter, Mary Rhodes Cooper, reported that she was married by James Hatters, a Minister of the Gospel, at Eddyville on April 23, 1808, to Benjamin Hammond. (Bounty Land Claim No. 263.434, dated September 15, 1856). Benjamin Hammond is also shown on the 1806, 1807 & 1808 Tax Lists for Livingston County. The original town of Eddyville, KY, was on the bank of the Cumberland River.

In about 1810, John Cooper and his family moved to Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, where both he and Benjamin Hammond established land claims near the Louisiana-Mississippi border. In 1812, John Cooper established a 589 61/100 acre land claim in Section 65, T1S-R1E. The north line of Section 65 is on the southern boundary line of Wilkinson County, MS. Section 65 is also adjacent to Section 72, which was claimed by Benjamin Hammond in 1810. John Cooper's daughter, Sarah D. Cooper, married Samuel Simpson on March 15, 1814, in Wilkinson County, MS. While residing in Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, both Warren H. Cooper, son of John & Abigail Cooper, and Benjamin Hammond joined with the local militia and fought in the Battle of New Orleans.

Sometime in 1815, the John Cooper family moved to Marion County, MS and settled near the present day town of Columbia, MS. On September 1, 1815, John Cooper and son, Warren Cooper, signed a Petition to Congress along with other inhabitants of the Mississippi Territory East of the Pearl River. On September 12, 1821, John Cooper acquired a claim of 230 25/100 acres of land in fractional Section 24, T4N-R13E, on the bank of the Pearl River, where he apparently lived for several years. The Benjamin Hammond family also moved to Marion County. Many of the descendants of the Hammond family still live in Marion County, MS.

The last information available for Abigail Bobo Cooper was in 1824, when she appeared as a witness in the divorce of her daughter, Catherine Cooper Oliver, from Charles B. Oliver. On January 24, 1831, John Cooper made a gift of various household goods and livestock to his daughter, Catherine Cooper Willoughby, wife of Rudolphus Willoughby. [Marion County, MS, Deed Book B, Page 369] He may have been living with the Willoughby family at that time. In 1840, John Cooper probably was living with the Benjamin Hammond family. [1840 Census, Marion County, MS] In 1850, John Cooper, age 87, was living with his son, William D. Cooper. [1850 Census, Marion County, MS page 189 (B)] No information on John Cooper has been reported after that date.

*The path of the Cooper family may have been similar to that of the George Gordon family detailed in the publication, The Gordon's of the Deep South, Ermine Northcutt Marshall, (1961), wherein at page 45 it is stated that the Gordon family departed from Union County, SC, in 1796 for Kentucky where George Gordon received two (2) land grants in Christian County. The part of Christian County where the Gordon's settled later became Livingston Co. Sometime before 1813, the George Gordon family moved from Kentucky to St. Helena Parish, LA.

1 - ZACHARIAH COOPER, was born 1783 in South Carolina according to the 1850 Census. He died in Morgan County, AL on 23 Sep 1855. It was said by old family members that he was the son of Noah Cooper, born in Ireland, but who had migrated to South Carolina by the time of the Revolutionary War, in which he participated. But others believe Zachariah's father was John Cotton Cooper. So parentage is uncertain here. Zachariah (the son) married Mary Quinn 1804-05 in Spartanburg County, S.C. Mary Quinn Cooper (born about 1788) was the daughter of John Quinn, born in Ireland, and Betsy Morgan.

 

2 - HUGH ANDERSON COOPER, was Zachariah and Mary Quinn's 6th child (of at least 11, six of them male) born 1815 in South Carolina; died (no date) in Texas. Hugh married Malinda Amanda Looney, 22 Nov 1835, at St. Clair County, AL. She had been born 1816 at Cumberland Gap, TN, to John and Rebecca Looney and was buried in Wood County, TX. Hugh and his wife were still living in Alabama as late as 1847, but had moved to Wood County TX by 1850. They were living in Coryell County, TX in 1879.

 

3 - BURWELL ZACHARIAH COOPER, born 25 Mar 1842 in Alabama; died 17 July 1920 in Colorado City, TX. He married LaVara Sephronia Ray, who had been born in Greenwood, LA, 20 Aug 1844 and died 28 Oct 1920 in Colorado City, Texas. "BZ" and LaVara had 12 children. On 25 Sept 1861 he enlisted in the Texas Cavalry, CSA, and fought on many battlefields in the East. He was paroled 9 May 1865. He had been wounded in the ankle and he walked with a limp the rest of his life.

 

4 - WILLIAM MORGAN COOPER, born 24 Jan 1868 in Upshur County, Texas; died 15 Feb 1940 in Colorado City Texas. He was a veterinarian and a gunsmith. On 30 Apr 1873 he married Nancy Adeline Spalding who had been born 30 Apr 1873 in Waxahachie, TX. He and Nancy had 5 sons and one daughter. His oldest son, Howard, ran away from home as an adolescent, settled in San Francisco, and worked his way up to high office in the Western Union Company. Other sons drifted to California, and one to Prescott, AZ.

 

5 - LEON STEWART COOPER, born 20 Nov 1895 in Sterling City, TX, married MABEL WRIGHT EARNEST in Colorado City TX on 16 Jan 1917.They had six children born between 1918 and 1938. He was a mechanic, a driver, a tour guide when automobiles were new and roads were bad and many people didn't want to risk driving themselves. He also tried to make a living doing oil field work and farming during the depression years, but as everyone knows, those times were hard. Toward the close of WWII, however, he got a civil service job at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard in San Francisco, and worked for the Navy as pipe-fitter, steam fitter, and mechanic until his retirement in the 1980s. After his retirement from the Long Beach Naval Shipyard he bought a piece of land near the northwest corner of Arkansas and raised a few cattle and hogs  -  a kind of ideal for him. He was physically active into his late 80s. He died 8 Dec 1985 in Dallas at age 90, from the effects of a stroke.

He was 17th of 21 signers of the Duplin County Oath of Allegiance and Abjuration passed by the General Assembly at New Bern, November 1777. The Governor appointed 12-men as Justices of the newly formed county of Sampson, including Fleet Cooper.

He died there and his wife remarried an Andrew Fiester and moved on to Fairfield S.C. All this latter information is circumstantial.
