The 1910 census said that Perrin had been married three times and his wife Margaret only once. Since Perrin C and Margaret A were married in 1891 in Kirksville [same place as the 1889 marriage] maybe Eliza of the 1889 marriage had died. Also, thought that this Perrin that married in 1889 might have been the son of Mathias M. Cooley, but leaning toward number two marriage for Perrin C. Cooley. However, if Perrin C and Margaret A had been married for 47 years in 1910 --- I am really confused. I found the Cooley family in Montana on three city directories. 1903 Billings MT Cooley, Perrin C, tmstr, h 303 N23d Cooley, Prince A, lab B& M R R co., r 303 N 23d 1910 Livingson MT Cooley, Albert P, farmer Cooley, Perrin E 1911 Helena MT Coole, C.W., inmate County Hospital Cooley, Charles, inmate County Hospital Cooley, Perrin C, rancher, r 1433 Walnut Cooley, Princess A, lab, h 1433 Walnut ________________________________ From: Michael Cooley <> To: John Cooley Mailing List <> Sent: Tue, June 19, 2012 4:47:25 PM Subject: Re: Perrin Cooley Looking at my notes for Perrin C, the 1910 census says that Perrin and Margaret had been married for 47 years. That would make their marriage at about 1863, the year of Joseph Custer Cooley's birth. They had Albert in 1875 and Frederick c1879. The 1900 and 1910 census both state that 2 of their seven children were still living, obviously Joseph and Albert. Looking at the 1860 census, he may have been married to Polly Wood and had a four year old daughter, Harriet. And he could have been the Perrin married in 1849 to Emeline Sutton. If we believe that he and Margaret had been married for nearly 50 years, then what of these later marriages? We know that Mathias M Cooley had a son named Perrin, born c1856. Might he have returned to Missouri? -Michael > Hi Sandy, > > Boy, I don't know.
