Ty Alexander has asked for additions to his Cooper genealogy. Here is what
I know of the family of Hamilton Cooper, b. 1806, son of James Cooper (b.
1753) and Sarah Comly. James was brother of William Cooper of Cooperstown.
He was brought to Cooperstown by William, and then became involved in
other Cooper real estate efforts in northern New York.

Hamilton Cooper married Mary Ann Dole in 1837. She was from Newbury,
Massachusetts, the daughter of William Dole and Mary Ann Pierce. They had
five children:
1. Sarah, b. 1841, md. Warren Douglas Smith of Oswego, NY
2. Augusta
3. Frances
4. Eugene, b. 1846, killed in the Civil War in Mississippi
5. Mary Jane , b.1849 - died in infancy

The family moved from Oswego, NY to Wheatland, Wisconsin, travelling most
of the way by boat. Hamilton died in 1851 and his wife in 1858. The
children were sent back to Oswego to live with relatives, including their
grandmother Dole.
