Hello Bush River Folks,
I am very happy to see efforts being made to restore parts of our heritage. Thank You all for your energy. I am decended from Cowpers in England into Bucks County PA 1699. Currently I am looking to find any information regarding South Carolina mainly as Union, Union County seems to be a place with many Coopers. I will cut and paste what I have regarding the region. (See Below)
* I would like to information to gravesites and any pictures.
I have many grave sites from about 1830 to present. I also have a few pictures. The following two sections have been scarce regarding information.
* I would also like any information on descendents of those in two sections that anyone would like to share.
Joseph Cooper and Elizabeth Jordan have been a difficult to find info.
