James D. Cooper abt. 1819 - bef. 1880
Posted by: Charles Sims (ID *****3936) Date: December 22, 2004 at 18:13:58
  of 568

I would appreciate hearing from anyone interested in exchanging information about James D. Cooper and wife Lucinda Sims and their children.
The family is found in the 1850 census for Henry County, Georgia and in the 1860 census for Clayton County, Georgia.
It seems probable that James D. Cooper died before 1880 in Fayette County, Georgia.
His widow, Lucinda (Sims) Cooper, age 69, is enumerated in the 1880 Fayette Co., GA. household of son, Thomas Cooper, age 22, and his wife Dora (Turner) Cooper. They, Thomas Cooper and Dora Turner were married 24 October 1878 in Fayette County, Georgia.

Unfortunately, the 1850 and 1860 censuses have only initials listed for the children born to James D. Cooper and wife Lucinda (Sims) Cooper. Therefore, it has been almost impossible to discover much more about some of them.
It is my sincere hope that someone may read this message and be able to help. Children as I know of them:

1) female: S.C. Cooper; b. abt. 1836 GA.
2) female: M.A.E. Cooper; b. abt. 1837 GA.
3) female: N. Cooper; b. abt. 1838 GA.
4) male: J.S. Cooper; b. abt. 1840 GA.
5) male: W.T. Cooper; b. abt. 1841 GA.
6) female: S. Cooper; b. abt. 1842 GA.
7) male: J.E. Cooper; b. abt. 1843 GA.
8) female: L.S. Cooper; b. abt. 1845/46 GA.
She is likely the Lucinda Cooper who married Lloyd West in Fayette Co., GA. on 6 April 1865. They are said to be buried in Mt. Pisagh Church Cemetery in Fayette Co., GA.
They are eumerated with children in the 1880 census for Fayette Co., GA.
9) male: Hiram Cooper; b. abt. 1847 GA.
He married Margaret Holt? abt. 1867 almost certainly in Fayette Co., GA. They are enumerated with children in the 1880 census for Fayette Co., GA.
10)female: Martha June Cooper; b. 24 Oct. 1849 GA.
She married Pitt William James Milner in Fayette Co., GA. on 7 March 1872. She died 19 April 1928 at Mt. Pleasant, Titua Co., TX.
11) female: R.N. Cooper; b. abt. 1850 GA.
12) Thomas Cooper; b. abt. 1858 GA.
He married Dora Turner in Fayette Co., GA. on 24 Oct. 1878.
They are enumerated with two children in the 1880 census for Fayette Co., GA. His mother, Lucinda (Sims) Cooper, age 69, is counted in the household.

I do have the well documented ancestry of Lucinda Sims going back several generations in America. She was born abt. 1811 in Laurens County, South Carolina. Her parents were Hiram & Mary (Abercrombie) Sims.

Thanks in advance for any help.
