RE: Harry Cooper
Hello Bob,

I found the same information that you did about Harry (his birth and death) but I could not find an obituary or where he was buried. If you ever do, let me know and I will link him to Irene.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for her the link for her mother. I added it to her memorial.

RE: Thomas J. Armitage
Thank you so much for the dates! I've corrected them on his memorial.
As to what the inscription says...
I was able to read the very last line, and did an Internet search with it. Apparently, there was a common sentiment used on headstones back in his day that read:

"God in His wisdom has recalled
The boon His love had given
And though the body moulders here
The soul is safe in heaven."

I think this is what is written on the bottom of Thomas's marker. If you agree, and if you want me to, I can add this inscription to his Find-a-Grave memorial.

RE: John Cooper
Robert, Check out James Cooper Find A Grave #26574834, the family believes this is Calvin's father (1679-1731) and that Mary Ludwidge (his mother) passed away in England circa 1719, she is said to have been 38 years of age when she died. I could see James staying a member of the Presbyterian Church when he came to the colonies. I have been unable to find the ship record; but someone in the family (around 1900) found a ship that a James Cooper came to Philadelphia on, with son Calvin circa 1719-1720. The son was 20 years of age. This family; mine by Moores and my husband's by Cooper drives me crazy with their wanting to know something the rest of the family doesn't know. To me, we would find more out if everyone shared what they had and we had concrete places to look. Sorry, but you seem like one of the sensible few who just want the truth and correct lineage like I do. We all make mistakes, believe me I've been lead down the wrong branch many a time. I'm not offended when someone has a better idea or proof of a better link within the family. So I just wanted to lead you to who my branch believes is James Cooper - head of the Eastern Pennsylvania Coopers. Don't go changing your tree until you do some research. Happy Hunting!, Mary

RE: John Cooper
Robert, I personally don't have the ax. A relative that resides in Ohio has it. It was passed from father to son. He will not let anyone see it anymore. Another relative (his 1st cousin) tried to take it from him. He is elderly and has left it to his son when he passes. The story goes that John made the ax himself with ash wood, because he was a strong man with large hands he broke the common axes of the era. It is a very heavy ax and has lasted through the years. John whittled his name and the year 1763 on it (believed to be the year he made it). John supposedly made his home on the homestead with it. You would think the family would be proud someone in the family has guardianship of it; but no, many want to claim the ax. This relative wishes not to be named. He is tired of being hounded about the ax and threatens to donate it to a museum. He says his grandfather made the wooden box, the ax is kept in (I have seen the box and ax) from the big oak in front of the farm. The ax is wrapped in some old burlap type material. This is family lore passed from generation to generation; the only proof of anything is the ax with date/name and the box it is kept in. Whether John made his home from it cannot be proven. So that is what I know of the ax and its history. I'm going to try to get to Ohio this summer and while doing family research I will attempt to get photos of the ax, the box and wrappings. There is suppose to be papers that each male who has owned it wrote on about the ax. I'm going to attempt to get copies or at least photos of those papers, also. If I'm able to get any photos, I will let you know and share with you if you would like. Until then, Mary
