Jane Hamilton Cooper

  • Birth 29 Nov 1752 Saint Augustine, St. Johns County, Florida, USA
  • Death 29 Jan 1823 Jefferson Davis County, Mississippi, USA
  • Burial Jefferson Davis County, Mississippi, USA
  • Memorial ID 33954045

"Florida was not a State until 1821." Perhaps someone has another suggestion as to where Jane may have been born.

Jane married Capt. Robert Cooper.

This gravesite was visited in May, 2000. It was located on the Solan Polk farm 1 1/2 mi N.E. of Clem, Jefferson Davis Co, Miss. Jane's and one other gravestone were in the woods. (Probably John H. Cooper, the child.) It seems the cemetary may have been located elsewhere and that more graves were there at one time. One book stated that the land was owned by Hamilton Cooper at the time Jane, his mother, died.

(One report states that Jane's son, Hamilton Cooper, is buried in the Elysian Fields Cemetery, Harrison County, Texas. Another report says this is not so.)
