Here is what I have found.

If Joel was born in 1790, he would have been 15 when he had William G!

Joel died early 1814, some time between Feb and May of 1814.

In the U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules, 1850-1885 Record for
W G Cooley
Born: abt 1805 in TN, was 75 years old, died during the year ending
May 31, 1880.









One of the places I found Joel as WMC's son:
