Margaret henley
Hi. I saw you in a comment of the page Find a grave letting a memorial Margaret Henley. I'd like to ask you something. I want to send a letter to Margaret Henley tomb. In the cementary ST John the Baptist. I'm from Spain and I can't travel to London. I'd like to know if you know somebody to help me or you can help me to make my dream come true and send a letter to Margaret's tomb. This means so much to me. Thank you so much. I wait for your answer.

RE: Reuben Cooley
My great grandmother was Cornelia Arabelle Cooley of Grant Co, Wisconsin. She was the daughter of Reuben Cooley and Elizabeth Smelser. Thats about as close as I get to the Cooley line.

RE: Reuben Cooley
Thanks Michael. I have Daniel Cooley Jr. being married to a Elizabeth Hardwick and I have his brother James Alvin Cooley being married to a Elizabeth Hardwick. And John W. Cooley being married to Mahala Hardwick. I assume that Mahala and Mariah and Elizabeth were sisters. Why two Elizabeth Hardwick. Did any of the Daniel and Milly Ball Cooley's daughters marry a male Hardwick? Terry

I am very impressed with your website and would like to follow up on a comment that you made to someone on Find A Grave regarding Thomas Henry Moon. Is he somewhere on that website?

RE: John Hart Signer
Thank you for the additional information about John Hart. I am reviewing this new information and will consider rewriting the biography to correct any misinformation out there. The problem all biographers have is that when there is contradictory information, which source is the one to be believed. It will take me some time to sort it all out, so your patience is appreciated.

Best wishes,

Hello Michael, I'm so sorry I'm late getting back to you, my computer has been down, and boy was that a pain!

I will gladly transfer James over to you, I'm always happy to help people find their family members!

Are your Cooley's related to these?

I browsed your website and you have very good data. Let me know if I can help you in any way.

Transfer done! It is easier, though, if you use the Edit tab. There is a naturalization cert at for a Louis Hennequin but I don't know if it is your ancestor. Margie

RE: Jonathan and Joseph Pettit
I'm pretty new at this but have really been digging into my dads side of the family (Pettit). Unfortunately I don't have a lot of documentation for some of my findings because when my brother and I were in Unionville we didn't think some things were related closely enough to bother making copies. I am now anxious to go back and do more research at that little library full of facts. The link I have to Joseph is that Nancy Ann Pettit was his mother and that he and Martha were born before Nancy could find a husband. Feel free to tell me I am wrong about any of my links. A lot of what I started with was from someone's research that I inherited so I don't know where they got their information but I found it to be a fun retirement project.

James Wallace B Finely Pettit's (my great grandpa)daughter Winifred was close to the family and I remember stories she shared along with a few letters I have found and stories of her childhood. I think finding one of her daughters might lead to a wealth of information if they kept all her old records and letters. She was quite a writer. There is a name linked to the Pettit's but not related. Daniel and Fannie Kelso.....Aunt Winnie wrote about the fact that they raised James and maybe others of the children. I contacted a lady who checked out what she could and could not find any mention of Pettit children yet my Granpa Wallace Lee Pettit and his sister Aunt Winnie went to Powersville and visited their old home when grandpa was older....... But Johnathan's life and family appears to be another whole coo coo nest.

I remember the Cooley name from several headstones as we traveled that area of Missouri. The Old Bigsby Cemetery I know had some. Would they be from your family? We never found the new Bigsby cemetery until we got home and used Google Earth. There is so much I wish I had known or understood before we made the trip. I know I will be going back when time permits, it's not that far away.

Sorry I'm long winded and not much help but once I start one of these responses I can't seem to stop.
