General Notes: Husband - Clyde Clayton Cooper


He was educated in the common schools of Freehold and Sugar Grove, Warren County, Pennsylvania. He then became a farmer, like his father, but took an additional interest in breeding draft horses of Percheron stock and raising them for sale, and also conducting an extensive dairy business. He passed his entire life on his farm, which he purchased from his father. During eight years of this time, however, he was actively engaged in the insurance business, representing the Freehold Fire Insurance Company. He was always deeply interested in the public affairs of his community, and was a staunch supporter of the Republican party. For a period of three years he served as commissioner's clerk of Freehold, and in 1908 was elected to serve for three years as county auditor, and reelected in 1911 to serve in the same capacity for a period of four years longer. Mr. Cooper was a prominent member of the Methodist church, having served as trustee of Forest Chapel at Sugar Grove and actively interested in Sunday school work. He became a member of Lottsville Lodge, No. 631, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, in 1895, and passed the chairs; in 1905 he was transferred to Coldbrook Lodge, No. 1124, at Sugar Grove. He was a member of the Encampment at Warren, joining in 1910, and belonged to the Rebekah Lodge at Lottsville. He was also a member of Sugar Grove Grange, Patrons of Husbandry, of which he was three times master.
