This entry is from Greg Moore. His great grandfather, Cornelius Cooper was related by marriage to my dad's family. Cornelius married my great-great-grandmother Rhoda's daughter, Mary Frances Elizabeth(Molly) Alexander . It was a second marriage for both of them, so there are lots of other cousins out there. And it gets really complicated when you add the fact that Lottie Cooper was married to my mother's aunt's brother-in-law, Frank B. Trimmer. If you're lost, don't worry. I can't follow it without notes. There are so many people in Caddo who are "related" by marriage I'm beginning to wonder if we shouldn't all make sure our children and grandchildren marry "outsiders". Anyway, if you are related to the Coopers we would love to hear from you.
