M.E.(lizzie) Cooper North Carolina 1835 Mother of H.A. Cooper
We have a bit of a mystery on our hands and have spent the last year pouring over online searches to find these two. Here is what I have and maybe someone will see this and have more information.
Lizzie Cooper from North Carolina born in 1835. Not sure of her maiden name but she had multiple children with we assume her Cooper Husband who we think was born in Tennessee. She had a youngest son name Hosea A Cooper or possibly Hosa A. His father and brother supposedly were both killed in the civil war. ( The numbers a bit dicey on him having a brother old enough to fight but thats what was passed down) Hosea was born in 1863 in Alabama and his father and brother were killed shortly after that. He was located near nashville Tenn. when this happened. His mother remarried a Hartson B Quimby and they ended up in Texas. Hosea married an Sarah Elizabeth wright whose parents were robert wright and samantha moon.
In later census information Lizzie is identified as Lizzie Quimby and M.E. Quimby and possibly Marsene Elizabeth Quimby.
A majority of this information comes from the census. Only things like the father and brother dying in the civil war and being located near nashville at the time are based on family lore. Someone also mentioned checking on a John Cooper from Tn as a possible lead.
