My wife`s paternal line is COOPER. I have been involved in following the many persons in her families as I follow the back trail back into VA. As I stumble along I find more of them on the side trails.
Currently I maintain data from 1733-1945 on the Georgia COOPER and their births, marriages, deaths, militia and military, church and cemetery, petit and grand jury, fraternal and political organizations, voting records, prison records, etc. I learn something new everyday and I am not bored with it all.
Anywho, I find myself following the COOPER over the years into other states or colonies. I learned to transcribe all of the data as I find just in case I will need it later. You never know when you will have to backtrack to something you saw on a previous search.<g>
Transcribing seems to make a permanent image on my pumpkin head.<g> I see queries with names that ring a bell and I look back into my data files that are stored in boxes marked according to specific areas that had the misfortune to follow the wrong COOPER but I did have the data as the result of the search. Rather than throwing it away I saved it just in case. And it has been very helpful in jump starting some folks research.
Many times I will have almost the same thing that everyone else has but sometimes I have specific data that surprises even them.<g>
In the past there were many folks very helpful to me in getting on the right trails. It is just my turn to do the same if I have the data that can help.
As the result I encounter folks like you and we cuss and discuss these folks and manage to get on the right track. That is how you and I reached this point.
As you have found out there are not too many Theadocia out there much less Theodosia.<g> In fact, Zenas and Zenos is not as plentiful as James, William, and John.<GGG>
