COOPER posted by Randal Cooper on Friday, October 22, 1999

Dear Researchers of Roane County, West Virginia, .... Does anyone have more information on Mary M COOPER, who was a patient in the Spencer State Hospital in 1900? .... Of about 425 patients in the 1900 list, there was one COOPER, the above-named Mary .... According to the 1900 Enumeration of the residents of the "Second Hospital for the Insane [the first one was in Weston], Mary M COOPER was born in February of 1831 which would make her 69 years in 1900.

She had been married for 21 years to her husband of that time [married 1879] and had 6 children, 5 of whom were living in 1900 .... This might have been her second marriage, judging by her age at the time of the marriage .... Mary was born in WV, her father in VA and her mother in WV .... Thank you for any help you can give
