I am looking for the children and grandchildren of Wille Beene and Hugh Wells Cooper and also where the couple is buried? Willie must have died about 1916 or 1917. Hugh died we think in the 1940's. After the mother death the children were living with Hugh and his Sister. after 1920 the children were living with the Beene side of the family in Laredo, Webb Co., TX. The Aunt name that we no of is Quincy (Beene) Benny who was married to Herman Benny. I found the girls living in Texas in the 1930 with the Beene lines.
