Preface

In 1879, William Wager Cooper compiled a Cooper genealogy which included family of Judge William Cooper, founder of Cooperstown, N.Y. The New York State Historical Association published the genealogy in its annual proceedings of 1917. Since that time more information on the Cooper family has been added to the collections of the Association's research library. This present genealogy attempts to bring all of the additional Cooper information together with W.W. Cooper's original work and at the same time making corrections in it. It still does not purport to be a complete record of all descendants of the first James Cooper. Since the Historical Association is located in Cooperstown, it is only natural that more information on the Cooperstown Coopers has been added to the collection than on the other Cooper lines, thus more on Judge William Cooper's descendants is included in this record than on the others.

The nine sections of the genealogy comprise nine generations of the family with members of the 10th generation listed as children under the ninth. The few known members of the eleventh generation are included as grandchildren under the members of the ninth. If more information on the tenth and eleventh generations is found perhaps these generations can be expanded into their own sections.

The numbering system used is one that is found in several genealogies. The number of digits in the number assigned to each person tells the generation he is in. The immigrant ancestor James Cooper is number 1. The two digit number for this oldest child Esther is 11, showing that she is in the second generation and is the first child of number 1. James' second child is numbered 12, and so on. In instances where there are more than nine children in a family, the number for that; generation is set off by parentheses [ {curly brackets}]. An example is the author James Fenimore Cooper whose number is 1533{11} [1533{11}]. Since he is the eleventh of his father's children, the eleven is set off by parentheses [curly brackets] to show that it represents only one generation. There are five digits in his number (counting the eleven as one digit) showing that he is in the fifth generation. The first four digits of the number represent his father, Judge William Cooper, who is in the fourth generation. After locating a person's number in the index and finding his name in the genealogy by determining the number of the generation, one can use the number to trace his ancestry back or his descendants forward. The numbering system allows for newly discovered names to be added in the future quite easily which a consecutive numbering system does not allow for.

Asterisks (*) have two uses in this genealogy. Those appearing before a child's names indicate that more information on the person as an adult can be found in the next generation [usually because they married and had issue, but sometimes to include other significant biographic information]. Asterisks appearing in the text refer to notes at the end of the segment [In this on-line version, substantive footnotes are numbered within each generation -- e.g., 1-1, 1-2, etc. Also, direct ancestors of the author James Fenimore Cooper, and his direct descendants, are indicated by a "#" symbol before the name -- Hugh C. MacDougall].

It is hoped this genealogy will be of use to those persons interested in the Cooper family. It is also hoped that it will encourage those working on the Cooper genealogy to submit further information to the New York State Historical Association's collection of Cooper information.

The index in the original printed publication has been omitted, since it is more practical to search for names using the "find" feature of the browser with which this document is being viewed.

GENEALOGICAL DATA

FIRST GENERATION

1. # JAMES COOPER1-1, of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, England, born 1661, died Dec.4, 1732.
     Married 1st to Hester ------- (d. 1706). They had eight children.
     Married 2nd in 1722 to Mary Borrows. There were no children from this marriage.
     James Cooper came to America and purchased land in New Jersey (deeds dated Sept.21 & 22,1682). In 1683 he purchased a lot on Chestnut Street, Philadelphia. On Oct.20, 1685 he sold the Jersey land and settled in Philadelphia. For thirty years he was a storekeeper at the northwest corner of Arch Street and Second Street, Philadelphia.
     His will was written in July 1732. Although his wife Mary was mentioned in the will, she was buried with him on the same day (according to the Pennsylvania Gazette of Dec.7,1732).

    Children of James and Hester Cooper:

1-1. Henry Walcott Boynton, in his book James Fenimore Cooper (New York: Century Co., 1931, pp 4-5) believes the first generation Cooper was a William Cooper, a contemporary of James of Stratford-upon-Avon. He says the "first American ancestor seems to have been a William from England...the indirect evidence, and there is a good deal of it, is all in favor of the William Cooper who came to Burlington, New Jersey, in 1679.... This William Cooper soon acquired lands in the Philadelphia neighborhood...and later started an important settlement at Cooper's Point, opposite Philadelphia.... William Cooper of Otsego [County. N.Y.] always believed that he was of this direct descent, and so did his son and grandson."
     James Fenimore Cooper, the novelist, said, in a letter written in 1848, "My descent in this country runs thus, William (emigrant); James; William; James; William; James Fenimore Cooper." (The Letters and Journals of James Fenimore Cooper, edited by James Franklin Beard, Cambridge, Mass.: 1960-1968, v. 5, p. 304).

4-4. The Dictionary of American Biography gives the marriage date as Dec. 12, 1775. The W.W. Cooper genealogy also gives 1775 as the marriage year. The genealogy William Fenimore 1834-1917 by Jeni Ferdin (1978) gives 1774 as the year of the marriage. A family record in the William Cooper papers says they were married Nov. 12, 1774.

Richard's gravestone gives the death as Mar. 8, 1813 and his age as 37 years, 7 months, making 1775 as the year of birth. The family record in the William Cooper papers gives the above date, Aug. 12, 1775, as the birthdate.

     He and his wife are buried in Christ Church Cemetery, Cooperstown, N.Y.
     He was originally known as James Cooper, but after his father's death, he attempted to have his surname legally changed to Fenimore to inherit property from his mother's family. Since this was refused, he called himself James Fenimore-Cooper thereafter, finally dropping the hyphen and using Fenimore as a middle name. [There is no hard evidence that Cooper sought to change his last name to Fenimore; the New York State Legislature in 1826 legally authorized his name to be changed from James Cooper to James Fenimore Cooper.]
