They're interesting as the William is said to have been bound out to race

    I'm trying to find siblings of William Washington Cooley b. Fayette,

Charles & Sarah. Parents d. when 8, bound out to race horse trainer.
Served in Mexican & Civil War. Searched for siblings until death.
    Any help?

    Searching for parents of William Cooley born Dec 25, 1825 in Fayette,
Howard Co. Missouri. Father's name Isaac Cooley. May have had a
brother Charles Cooley and a sister Sarah Cooley. Parents died 1832
when William was seven. Any information would be appreciated.
