Re: Coopers in upstate NY
I don't recognize the name Jeremiah as being connected to the Thomas Cooper family of Grand Isle, VT. I researched the Archives in Montpelier, VT,several years ago and found many Coopers from that time, possibly connected. My ancestor, Thomas Cooper Sr. was born about 1739 in Wallingford, CT. It is thought that his parents were Ebenezer Cooper and Thankful Bow Roberts. Thomas Cooper Sr. was married to Peace Deane, and they had the following children: Abigail 1768; Sarah 1770; Ruth 1772; Rhoda 1775; Lucy 1776; Thomas 1778; Ebenezer 1780; Jabez 1783; Ezra 1786. Two of their children, Thomas and Ebenezer moved to the area of Coopersville, Clinton Co., NY. Thomas to Chazy and Ebenezer to Champlian. Coopersville was named after Ebenezer. Ebenezer and his wife, Phoebe Edgerton were my 3rd Great grandparents.
