From 1892 History of Henderson County, IL: Rauseldon Cooper, the present state's attorney for Henderson county, was born Dec. 24, 1845 near Milton, Wayne Co, IN. His parents were John and Martha Cooper. At the age of two years his mother died and he was sent to live with his grandmother and his uncle Moses Cooper. In 1852 Uncle Moses came to Henderson county, bringing young Rauseldon with him. In 1863 he entered Lombard college at Galesburg, IL as a student, graduating in 1869 with the degree of B.S.

Growing weary of agricultural pursuits, in 1873 he entered Michigan University at Ann Arbor as a student of law, graduating in 1875.
