Israel Cooper
Birth: 1846, Poland
Death: Jun. 9, 1904
Elmira
Chemung County
New York, USA

Born in Poland/Russia, Israel (or Irving Israel per family, or Isadore as on 1900 census) immigrated to the US in 1894. He had married Bessie F. probably in Poland-Russia, as he immigrated first, then brought over many of his family, including brothers, parents, and his wife and children. He is listed as an alien still in the 1900 census, and a "pedler" who can read & write, and speak English. The family lived at 119 Orchard Street, where their son Joseph was married to his cousin Helen Cooper. Bessie is listed in the census as having 10 children, but only 7 were still living at the 1900 census: Helen "Anna", Samuel, Joseph Baer, Lillian, Jacob, Bertha, and Dora. Israel was an officer of the Modern Woodmen of America. He died at just 58 years of age.
