Hi Cynthia, I found some information that might be able to help you. I have found an 1860 Federal Census Record that shows John W Hooper, living with the following: Name: John W Hooper Age in 1860: 23 Birth Year: abt 1837 Birthplace: Alabama Home in 1860: Western Division, Franklin, Alabama Gender: Male Post Office: Frankfort
Household Members: Name Age Reubin Hooper 50 Mary S Hooper 45 John W Hooper 23 Jas W Hooper 20 Jas M Hooper 18 Martha A Hooper 16 Rich F Hooper 13 Nancy F Hooper 12 Thebia r Hooper 6 Obediah R Hooper 4 Mary E Hooper 1 John Stephens 25
I then found an 1880 census record that shows this:
John Hooper Home in 1880: Wheelers, Colbert, Alabama Age: 42 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1838 Birthplace: Alabama Relation to Head of Household: Self (Head) Spouse's Name: Louisa Father's birthplace: South Carolina Mother's birthplace: South Carolina Neighbors: View others on page Occupation: Farmer Marital Status: Married Race: White Gender: Male Cannot read/write:

I am not sure of Louisa's last name, but it does say that she was born about 1835 or 6 in Georgia and that her parents were from Georgia as well. I hope this is of some help to you.
