I'm not sure where I got this from. I've had it for some time. It appears it references one of Joseph's daughters, Virginia.

Virginia's father was always very much interested in politics, was an ardent states rights man, and an intimate friend of John C. Calhoun. He, at one time, was a candidate for the state legislature, but whether elected, I am not certain. He had been a carpenter by trade, but taught school in the then thickly settled community, including Greek and Latin in the curriculum of the country district. I have heard my Mother tell how the classes studied out under the trees, and the discipline must have been in keeping more with modern ideas than the switch and ferule of that day, for the kind hearted Quaker ruled without severity. He was much honored by his family, although he died in 1842, leaving a large number of his children to be brought to maturity by their energetic Mother. The majority of the five sons secured a college education, William Brawner Cooper graduating at Columbia College, Washington D. C. and entering the Baptist ministry. He was at one time pastor of the Augusta, Georgia church, and organized afterward the General Association of Florida and was its moderator until his death.
