Iím not sure why you posted to Chenango Co but I found a little more info that might help you in your search.

In the 1920 US Fed Census
Glazier Township, Stetsman County, ND, Dwelling 29, Family 30.

Cooley, Silas        Head 58 OH/NY/NY Farmer
Cooley, Mildred        Wife 25 WI/OH/IL
Cooley, Hattie       Dau 6       ND/OH/WI
Cooley, Henry       Son 5       ND/OH/WI
Cooley, Grace       Dau 7       ND/OH/WI Attended School
Cooley, Lora       Dau 1yr 10 mos       ND/OH/WI
Bennet, Vetta       Boarder 23 IA/IA/IA Rural School Teacher

In the next house there is the family of Scott (Age 62) and Pearl (Age 27) Cooley. Oddly enough Pearl is also born in WI and parents are OH/IL. If I had to make an educated guess I would say that Mildred and Pearl are sisters. Look at the age difference between husband and wife.

1930 US Fed Census
St Paul Park Village, Newport Township, Washington County, Minnesota Dwelling 145, Family 151.

Cooley, Silas       Head 69 OH/CAN/NY
Cooley, Hattie       Dau 16       ND/OH MI
Cooley, Grace       Dau 11 ND/OH/MI

Hum guess he didnít know Graceís age too often.

Didnít find any Henry or Maude Cooleyís that would fit your description in 1930
