Is this the same Isaac?

Searching for parents of William Cooley born Dec 25, 1825 in Fayette, Howard Co. Missouri. Father's name Isaac Cooley. May have had a brother Charles Cooley and a sister Sarah Cooley. Parents died 1832 when William was seven. Any information would be appreciated.

This is indexed as J N Cooly but it looks to me as though it -could- be I N Cooly. There's a similarly written first initial on the page that look closer to an I to me

Subject: Perrin Cooley inquiry
From: "Penny Henry"
Date: Thu, July 5, 2012 1:46 pm

Hello Michael,

Your request for information on Perrin Cooley was forwarded to me. My office vault houses the probate records from the 1800's here in Randolph County Missouri.

Unfortunately, I can find no record for Perrin Cooley. I did find Isaac Cooley, who died around July 12, 1838. His wife, Nancy, received the bulk of his estate. Also mentioned were sons; William, James, Thomas Marian, and a daughter Harriet.

The only other "Cooley" I can find in the 1800's was Washington T. Cooley who died around September 13, 1867 and left a wife named, Amanda and a daughter, Elizabeth.

There have been two major fires at the courthouse in our history, but perhaps the person you are looking for died in Macon County.
