U.S. States: Minnesota: Anoka County
Have recently discovered that George Walter Cooper was the son of Daniel Cooper and Mary Margaret Whitbeck. Daniel Cooper was born in Canada West and does not appear in any way to be related to James Cooper. While George Walter Cooper was born in 1859 in the area of ST. Paul, MN, by 1860 Daniel Cooper (his father) and family were living in Buchanan Co., IA.
In March of 1870 Mary Margaret Whitbeck Cooper remarried in Anoka Co., MN to George Woodward. The marriage record shows her place of residence as Black Hawk Co., IA. Thus, this is how George W. Cooper apparently got to Anoka Co., MN and not through a connection with the other Coopers in the area. At least from what it appears thus far.
Thanks for your response.
