Michael,

I found additional evidence that seems to link Thadeus and Abraham Cooley.

A book on civil war includes letters from a private John T Cooley writing
to his cousin Julia Ann (Cooley) Price in 1864. Julia Ann Cooley Price
was the daughter of Benjamin F Cooley, Abraham's son. Pvt John T Cooley
was the son of John Tucker Cooley Sr, who was the son of Daniel Cooley,
son of Thadeus (listed as Tucker Cooley, son of Daniel in Thadeus' 1814
will). I found another posting indicating Daniel's children were John
Tucker and Sally Cooley (below), which also supports John Tucker as son of
Daniel. John Tucker Sr. lived his life in Wythe and Tazewell Counties,
near to descendents of Thadeus. Abraham and his children lived in Grayson
and Carroll Counties.

Given this info, the letters seem to provide strong evidence that Thadeus
and Abraham were brothers.

Regards

John
