Thank you -- very helpful information.
We do know he had three children born in Chattooga County during the Civil War years so he was around here (extreme NW Georgia area) quite a bit, I would think.
There was an A.J. Cooper in one of the units below but we don't know if he was our guy. Our problem is tying him to a certain wife -- Mary J Morrow. We know what happened to her -- she was found living with the three young children with her father's family in the 1870 census, and family stories say that A.J., the father of the three kids, disappeared during the War years and was possibly killed. No one knows anything about him -- he is our genealogical "brick wall".
12th Battalion, Georgia Cavalry (State Guards)
Confederate Cavalry 12th Regiment, Georgia Cavalry (Robinson's) (State Guards)
It's actually a genealogical issue, but what we are looking for is some kind of document tying an A.J. Cooper who may or may not have served during the Civil War, to Mary J Morrow.
I appreciate everyone's input on this board. This is the best message board I have ever used -- stays on topic and replies are prompt and intelligent.
