Cooper Roll Neighbors were in the area which is now north of Cheraw, MS and over to Pike Co, and in the state of Louisiana where the Bogue Chitto State Park is. They were not from farther north Neshoba Co. The Spanish Land claimants picture in the avatar is the old neighborhood of claimants, many taking personal reservations which were offered if the Indian Agent was doing the right thing in good faith; which, as we know did not happen with the Agent Ward who did not give the Jane/ Turner Cooper family their personal reservation and they took it to the DuRant Constitutional Court of the Nation of Choctaw in OK and were admitted as citizens since they moved there within said boundaries.

Census Roll of Choctaw Families residing East of the Mississippi River and in the States of Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama made by Douglas H. Cooper, US Agent for Choctaws, in conformity with Order of Commissioner of Indian Affairs dated May the 23rd, 1855.

    Cooper, William (1753-after 1820), son of William Cooper, the guide for Daniel Boone, lived mostly in Spanish West Florida among the Choctaw relatives of his mother, Malea Labon. First found in 1787 on the Spanish census of Second Creek district. In 1790, he was back in N.C.. He took a Choctaw wife (unnamed) about 1800. Their son William Cooper married SUSAN KING, the daughter of Chief Moshulatubbee, and they eventually emigrated to Leflore District, Indian Territory (Choctaw-Chickasaw Citizenship Court Case Files, Case 39. 7RA324, Roll 13). Another son, James Cooper, resided in Tishomingo County, Mississippi with a household of eleven next him in 1837 and also on the 1840 census (p. 232) and in the 1845 state census (that is, he managed to stay in the East and not be removed). William Cooper the father was a partner of the Choctaw trading company Turnbull & Associates. He seems to have left his Choctaw children with their mother Susan, for a William Cooper married the widow Polly Banks Warner and was justice of the peace in Washington Parish, Louisiana (1806). He next entered a land claim in Spanish West Florida (1809). William Cooper is last mentioned as a widower farmer from N.C. in Spanish Pensacola, Oct. 20, 1820. https:
