We invite you to submit your "Pedigree" for this Surname.   Our Surname Project is primarily interested in your Paternal line, as surnames are passed down from father to son, just as the yDNA is passed down. 

If you ARE A MEMBER of this Surname Project at Family Tree DNA, send your pedigree by email to or The pedigree will then be posted on the Surname Project's Patriarchs Page.

I haven't purchased the kit yet (for my father).
I am in search of the parents and/or siblings of Wilson Cooper.
Here's what I know (my line back to Wilson)
Wilson Cooper (1805-1858) married Edney Culbertson (second wife Matilda Ewing) (all three buried in Laurens County SC)
Isaac Newton Cooper (killed in Spottsylvania VA circa 1864) married Minerva Washington(she was remarried to John Hill- she and john buried in Laurens county SC)
Washington Lafayette Cooper married Sally Moore (both buried in Laurens County SC)
William Newton Cooper, Sr. (1909-1975) married Nannie Mae Culbertson (both born and buried in Laurens County SC)
William Newton Cooper Jr. (b 1946)(living) married Bonita Joyce Clevenger (she is buried in Laurens County)
