Note on the 1850 census that Thomas Cooley was born in VA c1790. Our
Cooleys left VA before 1770. He's certainly not of John's immediate
family. The question, as always, was there a collateral line. So far, all
evidence points to no.

I haven't tracked this line, but my guess is that it is either of the
Jessamine or Madison county Cooleys.
