I transcribed the following from a jpeg sent to me by Sandra Stanton, Sep 2008. She received it from State Historical Society of Missouri.

I don't know what Paula Post's source for her listing of Perrin's children was.

Michael,
When I sent the information about the John Cooley that died in 1844, the William
Green & others that were the ones sueing rang a bell. I finally realized that
Eleanor Cooley married William Green on 3 Oct 1816 in Howard County, MO. I have
seen her on some databases as a child of James Cooley and his wife Elizabeth, but she is not listed as a heir on his probate papers. So I always felt that she was probably a daughter of Perrin Cooley.

Decided yesterday to try and find anything out about her and her husband.

Here is a sampling of what I am putting together --- will try to finish it off soon.

Willian Green was the son of Henry Green and his wife Priscilla Hutton. Henry was in the ARW in Maryland. His pension papers mentions William Green, his second son. Also, that he lived in Missouri and then Schuyler Co. IL.

I found what I believe to be William Green on the 1850 census for Schuyler Co., IL and here are the children. Wife was listed as Ellen age 54 and born in NC.

James, Peter Nancy, Priscilla with Perrin Green living with wife in the next house. This has to be William and Eleanor [Cooley] Green---Don't you think?

Also, found William Green on ther 1840 census for Schuyler county, Il. There are two daughters [5 to 10 years old] and 5 sons.

I forgot to add this:

What puzzles me is why was William Green and others sueing the estate of John
Cooley, decd. and the administrators Elizabeth and Joseph cooley.

John Cooley and Elizabeth White were married in 1816 and their first child, Joseph, was born 1817. Eleanor could not be a daughter of this couple.

Chapter IX
SILVER CREEK TOWNSHIP

Mr. Robert Smith, who owns a fine farm, upon which he operated a tobacco factory, half a mile east of Mt. Airy, is an old settler. He came to Huntsville in 1837, where he remained six years, and then moved to Silver Creek. He is now 73 years of age, and has raised a family of six children, three girls and three boys. In 1842 he bought the Cooley farm, one mile east of Huntsville. The farm is under-laid by a four-foot vein of coal.

From "The History of Howard and Cooper Counties, Missouri" (1889) regarding Moniteau township. Interesting mention of Perrin Cooley. His brother, Edward, had been very involved in the Methodist Church in NC and IN.

--quote--
The settlement of this township began comparatively early 1812. At this period Price Arnold located on section 23. He was from Mercer county, Kentucky, and arrived in Franklin township in 1811. Here he remained until the following year, and took a claim where his grandson, Matthew Arnold, Esq., now resides. The same year he was joined by William Head, who came from Washington county, Virginia. In the latter part of that year (1812), these two gentlemen selected a sight and began the erection of Fort Head, named in honor of Mr. Head, named above, who was chosen captain of the little band, formed for the defense of the small colony against the anticipated attacks of the aborigines. It is impossible to give the names of all the settlers at this late date, who sought refuse in the fort. We will, however, give the names of such as we have been enabled to get, and felicitate ourselves over the fact that we have snatched even these from the sea of forgetfulness, whither they, and all recollections concerning them, are so rapidly tending. Their names are Price Arnold, William Head, James Pipes, William Pipes, Joseph Austin, Perrin Cooley, a Methodist minister, Peter Creason, and Henry Lemons. After the close of hostilities, in 1815, immigration at once set in, and many valuable accessions to the population were made.

Note that the 1880 census (Macon co MO) for his probable son Perrin states that both parents born in NC. This is likely as close to verification that Perrin was born in NC as we'll get. If true, this means that his father, John, was in NC by 1769.
