COOPER, WIGGINS, STEVENS 1700s-1850+ from NC

It has been a little while since I posted this:

Seeking any and all information on Jonathan(Johnathon) COOPER, b. late 1700s in Sampson Co., NC, married ca. 1809, died after 1850 (last appeared in a census in 1850 in Marion County, GA.

This Jonathan was the son of Capt. John Cooper, and grandson of Fleet Cooper,Sr., of Sampson, Co., NC

His spouse was probably Drusellah (Drewsiller, Drucsilla) Stevens, based upon info in the Stevens Bible Record and John Stevens' will. This is not the Jonathan who married Patty Thames in 1807.

He was possibly a fortunate drawer in the 1827 Georgia Land Lottery. There was a Jonathan Cooper who drew a lot in Muscogee County, Ga, in a portion that later became Marion Co. This means he would probably have had to have a GA residence for two years prior to the lottery.

He last appeared in Sampson Co., in 1830. He appears in Marion Co, Ga in 1840 and 1850 censuses. He as a neighbor to Wiley Wiggins (a cousin) in both states. The Wiley and Willis Wiggins families moved to Marion Co., in 1833. That is also the year than Jonathan's daughter, Zilpha was married to her cousin Wiley Wiggins.

Jonathan's children include: William Stevens, Zilpha, John, Hardy, Williby, Rhoda, Martha and possibly others.

Thanks for any input!
