Re: cooper family of virginia
In Response To: Re: cooper family of virginia ()

You're welcome ;-)

I think the census image recording Fannie & Arthur Cooper and the lead concerning Fannie Reid (possibly Cooper) sounds very promising.

Her maiden name (see the census info below) appears to be Gregory. That doesn't mean that Fannie Reid/Reed isn't related in some other way. A cousin maybe?

I doubt your grandfather would have decided to leave his child with just anyone. For whatever reason he trusted Fannie & Edgar.

I found Fannie Gregory Reid/Redd in 1880, 1900, 1910 & 1920:

1880 Census Richmond, Henrico Co., VA
#911 Hancock St.

Wm Gregory Head Mul M 46 married Porter b. VA Father VA Mother VA
Millie Gregory Wife Mul F 37 married Keeping House b. VA Father VA Mother VA
Willie Gregory Son Mul M 16 single At Home b. VA Father VA Mother VA
Susan Gregory Daughter Mul F 15 single AT Home b. VA Father VA Mother VA
Washington Gregory Son Mul M 11 single At Home b. VA Father VA Mother VA
Frankie Gregory Daughter Mul F 9 single At Home b. VA Father VA Mother VA
Eleanora Gregory Daughter Mul F 6 single At Home b. VA Father VA Mother VA
Norhanna Gregory Daughter Mul M 3 single At Home b. VA Father VA Mother VA
M. Payne Boarder Mul F 38 single b. VA Father VA Mother VA

Notes: I think Frankie (which is a nickname for Frances) is probably Fannie & Norhannah is Ann.
