1900 :: Death of A D Cooper



Death - Rosebud - Capt. A.D. Cooper, age 84, died last Friday evening at 7:30 p.m. in Rosebud at the home of his son-in-law Chas. W. Meyers. Until recently, he was a citizen of Milam county, his old home being near Minerva. Soon after the war, Capt. Cooper was elected sheriff of this county, which position he filled with much credit. He was a public spirited citizen, and a high-toned gentleman, commanding the highest esteem and respect of all who knew him. A son and three daughters survive him. His body was shipped to Minerva and buried in the family burying grand at the old homestead. Rockdale Messenger, September 13, 1900
