Isaac Cooley, farmer, Bingen, Ark. The county of Pike, already one of the
best in the State of Arkansas, would indeed be still much better off if it
had more citizens with characteristics similar to those possessed by Mr.
Cooley. A native of White County, Tenn., where his birth occurred on May
19, 1823, his career from the time of his settlement here, and, indeed
from commencing life, was one of only hard work, strict economy, and an
intelligent application to the details of his various branches of business.
He is the eldest of eight children born to William and Sarah (Hudson)
Cooley, natives of South Carolina. The parents moved to Tennessee in 1815,
resided in that State until 1845, and then moved to Hempstead County,
Ark., where they made their home until 1855. They then moved to Pike
County, and there settled permanently. The father died in 1876 at the age
of seventy-four years, and the mother died in 1877 at the age of
seventy-nine years. Isaac Cooley was reared in Tennessee, obtained a
limited education in the common schools, and commenced for himself at the
age of twenty years. He started out as an agriculturist, and this has since
been his principal occupation. He is the owner of 115 acres of land with
about fifty acres under cultivation, and this yields an average crop. He
was first married in 1848 to Miss Linnie E.D. Rodgers of Kentucky, and the
daughter of John and Sarah W. Rodgers, who moved to this State from
Kentucky in 1839. Mr. Rodgers was a farmer, and owned a great amount of
land in Pike County. To Mr. and Mrs. Cooley were born nine children, six
now living, all married, and all residing in this State. They are named as
follows: John R., William T., Jefferson D., Sarah F., Elvira T. and Irene
J. Sarah F. was married in 1869 to Mr. E.K. McLaughlin, a farmer, who died
about 1879. Her second husband was John Duncan, who resides in Pike County.
They were married in 1881. Elvira T. married in 1872, Mr. R.B. Thompson, a
farmer residing in Pike County. Irene J. married in 1885, Mr. Monroe Cox, a
farmer residing in Sevier County. Mr. Cooley's second marriage was in 1887,
to Sarah J. Warren, of Tennessee, and daughter of Felix and Eliza Warren,
who moved to this State from Tennessee in 1861. Mr. Cooley is a member of
the Masonic fraternity, which he joined in 1862, and is a Master Mason. He
and most of his family are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church,
South. In his political views he adheres to the Democratic party, has held
the office of magistrate of Brewer Township several terms, and also served
one term as county judge of Pike County. He enlisted as a private in the
Confederate army in 1864, and served west of the Mississippi River. He was
in the Missouri raid and participated in numerous skirmishes, but was in no
important battles. He is a liberal supporter of all laudable enterprises,
and a worthy citizen in every particular.

... While browsing through a copy of (the) 1977 Arkansas Family Historian,
I found a query of yours asking for information regarding several families
from Pike Co., Arkansas.

Wondered if you found any information on the "Cooleys". I have found them
in the 1860 Census of Pike County.

              William Cooley     58  m   Farmer   SC
              Sarah Cooley       62  f            SC
              M.J. Cooley        22  f            Tenn
              S.E. (Elizabeth)   20  f            Tenn
              Cile Richard       12  m            Tenn
              M. Alonza           9  m            Tenn

The last two listed were two Cox boys. Cile Richard is my grandfather.

My father Richard Ed Cox (now deceased) had always told us his father and
brother were raised by the Cooleys in Ark.

We have tried in vain to find their father Richard Matthew Cox and the
circumstances leading to his leaving Cile Richard and Matthew Alonza with
the Cooleys.

Did you get any information on the Cooleys? ... Will appreciate any clue
or information you can give ... Sincerely, Etta Jackman
