Jean Cooper: that sounds like fun!

Daviss: I am so excited about that Is Cooper one of your search surnames

Jean Cooper: I'm finding a lot of useful information in the Chancery records at the library of virginia yes, my Coopers are from South Carolina they are hard to find because of the burned county problem

Daviss: great!! we have a Va researcher that comes to chat daily

Jean Cooper: great

Daviss: I have Coopers in my line also In fact he was sold in SC and sent to Tx

Jean Cooper: I also have a line that goes from NC to Ohio to Illinois to Missouri do you know if he was in the Orangeburg SC area?

Daviss: no idea, I wish I knew. He was bought to Tx by a man named Joe White

Jean Cooper: sorry, I had to go check the temp on the turkey what name did he choose after emancipation?

Daviss: He stayed a Cooper. His name was Louis cooper

Jean Cooper: hmm... there were at least three cooper families in SC in the mid-nineteenth century the orangeburg Coopers, the barnwell coopers, and the kershaw coopers

Daviss: wow

Jean Cooper: I think they were related in the colonial period, but I'm not sure the whole cooper line is very confusing because of the lack of records

Daviss: I wish I could narrow it down to a county

Jean Cooper: its kind of like searching for a needle in a haystack, isn't it?

Daviss: My great grandmother carried the name White but she was aquired in Ala

deannie: I'm sorry my daugther was on facebook

Daviss: I will keep Orangeburg in my notes Jean Cooper

Jean Cooper: good luck ... try barnwell district too

Daviss: no problem deannie oh ok

Jean Cooper: I wish we had the wills and inventories indexed for these counties

Daviss: Oh my, that would be wonderful

deannie: i have to buy her a new one for school...but due to her only be here for 4 days she left her's at school

Jean Cooper: check the online database on that page I gave you - it is an example of what we're trying to do -- collect all the raw data we can and see if we can get links when the computer compares the info

Daviss: they have a lot of good sales now deannie I sure will Jean Cooper

Jean Cooper: I've heard that historically, the best sales are not on Black Friday, but between that Sat. and Dec. 13th
