A Cooper descendant contacted me.
All because of WikiTree.
And so I say, "Yipeeee!"
Please excuse dorkiness. I'm excited.
Hi Debby! Found a couple of items on the wonderful, free LDS Family Search website.
Marriage record: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/NMPV-44W
1850 Census (I think you already have this): https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M67W-C5Y (Record Image)
I do, but it was extremely nice of you to do some searching.
A lot of my profiles have documentation and sources in hard copy notes, but I'm slowly working my way through, trying to find online sources rather than retyping all the data entered on paper.
I can't go much further back than your Joseph of England either. I did find Thomas' Wikitree profile leaf (Cooper-4403), and I entered his FindAGrave.com memorial link.
Please adopt these orphaned profiles and add any additional information you have about this family. Thank you, and sorry I couldn't find more information for you. Kitty
Hi William! I am so glad you joined us and sorry I didn't respond to this earlier. Here is Galba's FindAGrave.com memorial: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=33299474 It is a nice memorial with several links to other family graves, including Mary's, and a picture of him with one of his wives. This is Galba's WikiTree profile leaf: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Branson-220
Hi Linda! So glad you are here!
You should take a look at the Cooper DNA Project page.
You should also check out our WikiTree DNA Project page, which is not Cooper-specific, but it has a lot of good information about DNA testing.
Hi William, Do you think this could be your Burton and Mary? 1860 Census: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MHZ1-CKT and 1870 Census: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M463-ZG1
In both cases Polly or Pauline was a couple years older than Burton.
Here is Burton's FindAGrave memorial: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=29325474 I don't believe there is a WikiTree profile leaf for Burton yet.
Here is Elmer's death info: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/KFH3-NV1 Congratulations! You just got his mom and dad (Horace Cooper and Elizabeth Arnold)!
Here is Horace, Elizabeth and "Almer" in the 1860 census: https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/MWDK-ZW2 Almer has a brother named Gilbert (Elmer named one of his sons Gilbert also). The birth year estimates seem a little off though.
