Letter to Mildred:


Office of Recorder of Deeds for Clay County; Nicholas Mosby, Recorder

Liberty, Missouri

June 16, 1932


Mrs. Edward C. Tallant,

Santa Barbara, California


Dear Madam:

            In reply to your letter regarding the history of the Cooley
family, I will say that our records extend from the year of 1822, and I have
looked from that time to 1864 and the following are the only records which I
find during that period of anyone by the name of Cooley:


Christopher Cooley and Nancy Officer - 9-30-1834

            Harrison Cooley and Nancy Been - 1-22-1839

            Joel Smith and Dorothy Cooley - 2-12-1843


            We have a family of Cooleys in our county, and I would suggest
that you write Mrs. Charles E. Bigham, North Kansas City, Missouri, R.F.D.,
in regard to the family history, as I happen to know that she was formerly a

            As for old histories of Clay County, I am sure that Edgar
Archer, Liberty, Missouri, will be glad to give any information which he can
in regard to your family.  He has a number of old Clay County histories in
his possession, and is interested in such things, and I am sure would be
glad to answer any questions you might ask him.

                        Very truly yours, /s/ Nicholas Mosby, Recorder


P.S. I am returning herewith your dollar bill, as I will make no charge for
this service."



Mildred did write to both persons suggested - also a note of thanks.)


Mary Cooley
