I am looking for information regarding my ancestors from Manitoulin Island area, Ontario, Canada.
I have traced them back to my great great grandfather, who was James Samuel Cooper, born 15 Dec 1857 in Scott, ON; married 16 Jan 1879 to Margarent Eaton, born 9 Jun 1859 in Collingwood, ON.
I know that James' father's name was Samuel J Cooper, married to an Elizabeth. That is all of the information that I have. I do not have a birth place or birth date for Samuel, or a last name or any other information for Elizabeth.
As far as Margaret Eaton goes, I know that her parents were Cyrus (Syrus?) Eaton, born 22 Apr 1834 in Manitowaning, Manitoulin Island, ON and Christina, born appr. 1845 and died appr. 3 Mar 1918.
Here is a little more information about the family...
James Samuel Cooper and Margaret Eaton had 10? children. Their names were:
Robert George (or Gordon) Cooper b. 15 Jun 1894 in Assiginack, ON (My great grandfather, married to Zelma Cavanaugh b. 1 Jun 1906)
Jane Elizabeth Cooper b. 20 Jan 1882 in ON (married to Benjamin Storms and Joseph Picard)
Charlotte Cooper b. May 1886 or 1887 in Sandfield or Assiginack, ON
Edith L. Cooper b. 14 Feb 1892 in Tehkummah, ON(married to Cyrle Montague Smythe)

Mary A. Cooper b. about 1883 (died 16 Feb 1889 at the age of 5 years - same date as her sister Adeline)
