James H. Cooper Passes Away – James H. Cooper passed away at his home in this city at 1 o’clock this morning after being confined to his bed for ten days. His death was a great surprise to his friends, for while he was known to be in feeble health, it was not understood that his condition was alarming. Several years ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis and from this he never recovered. During the past few months he has been in a state of decline and could take no solid food. This was the beginning of the end.

James Hayden Cooper was born in Howard County, Missouri on the 16th day of February, 1842, and would have been 67 years of age at his next birthday. He was one of a family of four children and his sister, Mrs. Lizzie Pollard, is the only survivor. In 1858 he came to Fayetteville and had since that time lived in this community. In 1866 he was married to Miss Natalie North who, with his five children, survives him. At the breaking out of the war he enlisted in the Confederate army and fought to the end of the struggle, one of the bravest of the brave. It was known among his comrades that there was no more gallant and fearless soldier than James H. Cooper. He was a consistent member of the Christian Church and faithful in the observance of its ordinances. He was a true man in all his relations of life and the community shares in the grief of his bereaved family.

March 6, 1847 - October 10, 1925
