Thanks Peter, your info helped me alot. Do you know where I can find out any info on the newspaper 'Vermillian Standard"
run by the Cooper family. I'm doing some research for a friend in England she is looking for descendants of the Cooper children: Vernon was a member of Parliement in 1950.
She didn't give me much info to go on so anything I get is a bonus.

Have you concluded your search for Cooper in Vermilion? I currently live in Vermilion and have in my possession a 75th anniversary publication about and printed by the Vermilion Standard. The very first page has a picture of Sextus R.P. Cooper founder of the Vermilion Standard. He owned, edited and published the paper until March of 1953 at which time his 4 sons took over. They sold the paper in 1973. There is one other picture of the Cooper family in the book (circa 1907). The former school (now museum) was also named the SRP Cooper School. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

I am married to Shaun Gannon Grandson to Sextus R. P. Cooper. He is the son of Joanne Cooper ( 1rst Marrage to Allen Gannon). I am trying to put together a history for our gandchildren on this side of the family if you would like to add this newspaper to my narrow collection that would be great. I am also looking for information on Cap ( Bernard H. Cooper) Sextus's son who dies in the war. Please respond to corgow@telus.net. Thank you
