August 19, 1886
COOPER - At the home of her son Moses in Greenville precinct, Aug. 16th, 1886, Mrs. Elizabeth Cooper, aged 97 years, 9 months and 5 days.
Mrs. Cooper was born in Washington county, Penn. In 1817 she and her husband moved to Wayne county, Indiana, where a few years later Mr. Cooper died. To them were born nine children, five of whom are residents of this county, and the sons are well known and prosperous land owners. She came to Illinois in 1853. For many years of her old age Mrs. Cooper had been feeble, and for some time almost helpless from partial paralysis. The body was brought to Oquawka cemetery for interment.
