Death certificate for William Washington Cooley

William is known to have been born in Howard county MO. His father listed
here is Isaac, who can be none other than James's son, Isaac, born c1805.
The 1880 census for William says his father was born in OH. Sandy has
pointed out that subsequent census entries give his father's bp as MO.
But, so far as we know, James didn't go to MO until 1811. We know that
Tink was born in KY in 1810 but James is not showing up in KY records.
Presumably, he went to KY from NC with his father (John) c1806. But do we
really know where he was those 4-5 years. Could he have been traveling
with the family plying his trade as a horse trader/trainer?
