JOHN P. COOPER, far., Sec. 1; P. O. Blue Grass, Scott Co., Iowa; . In 1836, he married Miss Winnie J., daughter of Michael Pace, of this county;

they had to cross into Illinois to have the ceremony performed, as there was no law authorizing marriages in Iowa at that time, and they were among the first couples married in Rock Island Co., if not the very first;

they had twelve children, ten still living--- Robert M., Mary E. (now Mrs. A. J. Hyatt), John P., Louisa (now Mrs. Wm. Benshoff), Catherine (now Mrs. C. F. Wineman), Harriet S., (now Mrs. L. Stennett), Emma (now Mrs. J. Mallacoat), Josephine (now Mrs. G. W. Albee), William C.
and Winona.

Mr. C. has been a member of the Baptist Church for over forty years, and his wife joined shortly after they were married. Mrs. C. was called to her long home in December, 1877. Mr. C. is a Democrat.
