William C. Cooleyis listed in many places but I have not found any name for
the C. for William Cooley, born 1818, son of John. Some give his nickname
as Buck. He also belonged to the Masons as did most of my Gipson ancestors.
Was this true in other Cooley families?
In 1850 this family was in Adair County, Mo and in 1860, Chariton. In 1870
they were in Randolph County. The daughter, Sarah Elizabeth, born 1845 has
been listed in Jan Martinet's history as a Cpt. in the Civil War, 1863 under
General Price. She first married John Phillips and he was killed about
1864-65.by bushwhackers in Randolph County, Mo. Details not known. In
1868 she married George Washington Heifner.
Two of George Washington Heifner's cousins rode with the Quantrill raiders.
Clark Hockensmith was killed trying to save Quantrill. Both were killed.
