Married Missouri Melanie Dorlaque November 11, 1875 in St Charles, MO.
His nephew, "Pete" Boone told me that he was "a horse trader" and was known county wide for his veterinary abilities to "nurse them back to health". I know from our photo albums that he was proud of his horses! My brother, David Lee Cooper was the second of his great-grandchildren mentioned in the obituary.(BCF)
