Table Rock Argus (Table Rock, NE), Thursday, April 19, 1900

The grim reaper, Death, has been busy in our midst during the past few weeks and six pioneers of Table Rock have fallen victims to his power. First M. M. Stover, then Mrs. McCaslin, Mrs. Samson, Mrs. Burow, Mr. Werner, and "Uncle Henry Cooper", as he was known to nearly everybody. For a long time Mr. Cooper has been in feeble health, suffering from cancer of the stomach, and last fall he had a long sick spell and it was feared then the end was at hand, but he grew better, and was able to be about town some, but his usual vigor and strength were gone never to return. Last week he was worse and continued to grow weaker until his death which occurred at 4 o'clock yesterday morning. Henry Cooper was born May 3, 1825, in Cayuga co. (sic), N.Y.; was united in marriage to Phoebe Jane Wendover on October 20, 1847; they moved to Bronson, Michigan from which place he enlisted to serve in the civil war in 7th Infantry, Co. I, Michigan volunteers; he was wounded in the battle of the Wilderness and taken prisoner; was an inmate of Anderson and Libby - enduring the horrors of these prison-pens for six months. He came to Pawnee county in 1869, and has been a resident of Table Rock for twenty years. He leaves a wife and six children to mourn his departure, all of whom attended the funeral. The children are: O. A., and William, of Humboldt; Mrs. Sadie Domedian, Denver; Mrs. Clara Lane, and Vernon H., of Table Rock. The funeral services were held in the M. E. church (sic) conducted by the pastor, Rev. G. M. Gates, the G.A.R. and W.R.C., being present and conducting the services at the grave. The church was crowded with old-time neighbors and friends of the deceased and the sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved wife and children.
