Thanks Chris for your reply. I am not familiar with the Phillips family in Paulding but I do have some information on Jesse and Moses Cooper and their descendants who moved to Paulding County from Union County, SC.

I have been searching for several years trying to find a relationship (kindred) between my Harris family and Moses Cooper. Were they just close neighbors and friends in both counties or were they related? My great-great- grandfather, Samuel Harris moved to Paulding County about 1846. My great-grandfather Daniel T. Harris, followed buying two landlots in February and March 1852. Almost one year later Moses Cooper purchased three land lots between the property owned by my great-grandfather and the property owned by my great-great grandfather. This property was several miles from where Moses's brother Jesse already lived in Paulding. Before leaving Union County (1850 census)Moses Cooper lived next door to a Richard Harris. If you have any relevant information or would like to have the Cooper information I have please let me know
