First Name:

The Tingley/Cooper Connection of Ontario

Updated April 6, 2001

About Our Family Research

My family research is based on the Cooper's and the Tingley's.

Our family history can be traced quite a long way on the Tingley's side as I am a descendant of Palmer Tingley who came to Massachusetts from Kingston-Thames-England in 1635. My lineage on this side is as follows: Donna11, Afton10, Oscar9, Joshua8, Joshua7, William6, Josiah5, Samuel4, Samuel3, Samuel2, Palmer1, William Tingle.

The Cooper side is a little harder to trace as little is known on this side. This is my father's side of the family. What I do know of the line is this: Walter4, John3, William2, John1.

My closest family is from the Hamilton, Ontario area, where I was born and raised along with 2 sisters and 1 brother. I hope to expand my tree as far back as possible on all sides and through side branches as well.
