William M. Cooper, Benjamin Cooper, John M.K. Cooper and Mary Cooper, all descended from the original William Cooper, who ran a Delaware River ferry business in the last years of the 17th century.
The New Newton Meeting was the core of a Quaker enclave that played a pivotal role in creating the social and business community that evolved to become Camden.
What appears to be a vacant lot behind a warehouse at the Mt. Ephraim Avenue and Mt. Vernon Street end of Old Camden is actually a Quaker cemetery whose stones now lie below the surface. One hundred thirty-nine members of the city's founding Quaker families are buried here.
