I May have been misinformed and have my info wrong.but my understanding from family and sources,Hiram and Martha was first cousins. Martha mother Martha Jane cooper is my great great grand father Thomas Sterling Coopers sister.Hiram father was Thomas s,coopers brother.Jessie Cooper and Anna Hosey were their Parents.So my understanding both sets or related. Hoseys and coopers migrated from other parts.some staying and others settling. in the long haul they are all related but distantly blood connected.i never heard of German blood line. Irish and Indian mostly. that's what i grew up understanding.and cooper has always been cooper.amazing at what you find out later. that is why i love history.i have been researching since i was a kid,and now i am 58 and still learning.would like more email@example.com
my name is Pam cooper.
