George E. Cooper, 94 years old, negro Confederate Veteran, died Friday night at the City Hospital. The veterans of Camp Sterling Price had supprted him for a number of years, and the funeral yesterday afternoon was under the auspices of the camp. The burial was in the Confederate lot in Oakland Cemetery. Until the infirmities of age overtook him, Cooper was known about town as "Old Confed." He always wore the Confederate uniform. During the war he was in Joseph E. Johnston's command. Old soldiers said he was in the thick of the fighting at the battle of Franklin, Tenn. He had no family.
