New Daniel Cooley / Mildred Ball information
Daniel Cooley was born about 1765 in Virginia. He later resided in Adair County KY and died in Ray County, MO in 1826.
It's long been presumed that he was the son of John Cooley of Stokes County, NC. In fact, genetics has proven that's not the case. It turns out that the John Cooley who was born in Adair county in 1797 has the exact DNA "fingerprint" as Daniel. He wasn't a son, however--the John Cooley who married Mahala Hardwick is proved to be Daniel's son.
This suggests that Daniel was John's uncle. Therefore, there are at least two brothers to be found in Virginia c1760s or 70s.
