You are not far from St. Clair County. I know right where the county line is on Hwy. 231 between Vincent and Pell City. A friend of mine's grandmother lived in a house just inside St. Clair County on Hwy. 231 when I was attending Easonville Jr. H.S., which no longer exists. The school site is now underwater due to the dam on the Coosa River. As Jacob Cosper's son, James Berry Cosper, (1796-1875) was buried in Shelby County, I would think that some of his children more than likely remained in Shelby County. Approximately when was your house built? In all, James Berry Cosper had 14 children, per my book. However, only the names of his two sons that became doctors are listed in the book. He had eight sons, all of whom fought in the Civil War. The book lists the St. Clair County descendants of Dr. Pickens DeJaurnette Cosper and of his oldest son, James Willingham Cosper. Glover was not one of the names listed though. You might go to a library and look for a similar book on Talladega and Shelby Counties when you have the time and see if there are any Cosper families included in either of the books.
I own two books published by Heritage Publishing Consultants, Inc. (St. Clair and Cleburne Counties, AL) In 1998, this company's office was P. O. Box 67, Clanton, AL; Phone Number: 1-800-568-1611. I just tried the number and it is still a working number for this company. However, their office is closed until November 3rd. The book was printed by Walsworth Publishing Company, Inc. I would callthe Heritage folks and see if they could look for Glover Cosper. The books are indexed so it wouldn't take long to do that. If not, perhaps they would allow you to come to their office and look through their books. It would certainly be cheaper than buying one of their books. I think that my mother paid about $70 for each of her books.Sarah
