Yeah I don't talk much but I like to read the list to keep up with what has been going on :) ________________________________ From: Michael Cooley <michael_at_newsummer.com> To: John Cooley Mailing List <undisclosed.recipients_at_johncooley.net> Sent: Saturday, May 26, 2012 6:15 PM Subject: Re: Rhoda Cooley who married Henry Willis Hi Michael, I'd forgotten there was another Michael Cooley on the list. :) As I recall, you are of the John Jr line. Mary's husband, another Michael Cooley, is from John's brother, Joseph. I'm from their brother Edward--who never lived in Casey county but I think he may have visited for an extended period prior to the death of his father. Indeed, virtually everybody on this list is from the Casey county Cooleys. James, Joseph and Perrin left for MO in 1811. That same year, Edward left the old family home in NC for IN, and about the same time Cornelius went to TN, possibly to join William Matthews Cooley, the likely oldest son in the family, who's had the left the area c1806. I haven't tracked the Sangamon co IL Cooleys too closely to know just when the went. A number of John Jr's family went, including Thomas Hutchins Cooley, the subject of the articles I referred to earlier. Of course, your John and his brother Reuben stayed in the area. We've never been able to trace either of the the sisters, Hannah/Joanna and Elizabeth, but I think the William Blackburn family in Casey in 1810 may be Elizabeth's family. I'm glad we heard from you, Michael. I wasn't sure that you were monitoring the list. -Michael > My husband also! > > From: Michael Cooley > Sent: Saturday, May 26, 2012 9:19 AM > To: John Cooley Mailing List > Subject: Re: Rhoda Cooley who married Henry Willis > > Awesome find!
