Hattie Cooper of Borger-1941
Posted by: Cheryle Date: September 27, 2000 at 09:44:52
  of 73

I am searching for the family of Hattie Cooper who had lived in Borger, Hutchinson Co., during 1941.

On my grandpa's birth certificate a Hattie Cooper signed an affidavit certifing she was present at his birth as a midwife, nearest relative or other person having knowledge of this birth. It was dated 8-22-1941.

My grandpa was George "Jack" Henderson Murphy, b. 1902 AR. His parents were James Murphy and Molly Ford, from AR. He had an older sister, Effie C., also b. AR.

We were told Molly died when grandpa was 6 months old. He rarely spoke of his early days or of Catherine, his stepmother who raised him.

I know that grandpa and Effie were in Borger by 1926. Grandpa worked in the oil fields there and met my grandma in Borger, 1927.

I am hoping that someone could tell us how Hattie was related to the Murphy's and if any information is known about them, especially, Molly and Effie.

If anyone knows of Hattie or her family, please e-mail me directly at

Thank you,
