The family given for Wm is not the same as in the Paula Post posting, above. The Williams need to be looked at again.

WILLIAM COOLEY

(Farmer, Section 12).

Mr. C. is the son of John and Elizabeth Cooley, both natives of the
Blue Grass State. They came to Missouri at an early day and settled
in Howard county, where William C. was born August 19, 1818. He
grew to manhood on his father's farm, and received a good education
at the neighboring schools. He was engaged for some time in salt
making. In 1840, Mr. Cooley took to wife Miss Elizabeth, daughter
of John and Elizabeth Fields, originally from Kentucky, and soon
after his marriage removed to Randolph county. He began life with
only a pair of ponies as his stock in trade, but by steady attention to
his business and habits of unflagging industry he has acquired a com-
fortable property, and is among the substantial men of the township.
He cultivates 140 acres of land, making a specialty of wheat. Mr.
Cooley saw some active service during the war, being out with Price's
raid in 1864, and was made a prisoner at Fort Smith. He was after-
wards released at St. Louis. Mr. and Mrs. Cooley have eight chil-
dren : Joseph, Sarah, Rebecca Jane, Catherine, Elvira, Evaline,
Adelia Ann and Edla. Mr. C. is a prominent member of the Masonic
order.
