Classification: Query
Surnames: Cooper, Davison
His second wife, Margaret Cooper, had a son from her first marriage to ___ Cooper. The son's name was Nathan Cooper, born about 1774:

SPARTANBURG COUNTY SOUTH CAROLINA DEED ABSTRACTS BOOK A-T 1785-1827 page 46.
January 6, 1790 Richard Barry (Spartanburgh) to John Davison and "present" wife MARGRET (York Country); John with consent of his wife and her son NATHAN COOPER binds NATHAN as apprentice to Richard, saddler, until NATHAN is 21; NATHAN is now 15 years old since August 5, 1789; NATHAN can't play cards or dice or frequent taverns or the ale house or get married or practice fornication; Richard is to provide clothes, meat, drink, washing, and lodging with one year of schooling and, when the time expires, one suit.
Witness: D. Gordon, Thomas Moore, and Robert Hanna.
Signed Richard Barry, John Davison, NATHAN COOPER'S mark, and MARGRET DAVISON's mark. Witness oath September 21, 1790 Thomas Moore to Andrew Barry.

Do you have any information on Margaret's first husband or, for that matter, on Margaret.

I descend from Nathan Cooper. Any help you may provide would be greatly appreciated.
