17th Alabama Infantry (CSA)
Ancestor Info
Name: John G CooperRank: Private Company: E

John G Cooper lived to nearly 101. He married a widow with two children in Randolph Co, AL after the war. They had seven more children, moved to Lincoln Co, TN, on to Boone Co, AR, through Indian Territory (Oklahoma), down to Navarro Co, TX then back up to Comanche, Stephens Co, OK. On the occasion of his 100th birthday in 1930, he walked 3 miles into Comanche, to Main st, threw his hat up in the air and let out a 'Rebel Yell.' He also was celebrated on the front page of the newspaper, had a big luncheon birthday party with the Kiwanis Club and ?supposedly went up in an airplane that day. I have great photos of these events.
