Surnames: Hooper,
I just started searching for my mother's side of the family.

The Hooper's, My grandmother lived off River Road, Bessie Hooper Ward, Also to my knowledge there was a Larkin Hooper living in the same area. Bessie's brothers where Jake died in Chattanooga, Rainey lived in Florida and was a Seventh Day Adventist Minister, and Joe. Her sisters where Evelyn and Mattie which lived in East Nashville

Bessie's Mother was a Kieger from East Nashville I believe.

Any help would be greatly appreciated
