Apparently, James shot and killed his father's murderer.

This a ppears to be the same man....

1870 > TEXAS > JACK > JACKSBORO P O
Series: M593 Roll: 1593 Page: 446

James Cooley 30 m laborer MO
Elizabeth 20 m keeping house TX
Jackaline 3 f TX
Benjamin F 2 m TX

Curiously, the James Cooley who was born in PA c1808 and spent years in OH and IL, is found on page 441. His descendant carries the same yDNA that I do. It's likely these men knew one another. Did they know they were related?

I cannot find a James, Elizabeth or Benjamin Cooley in any US census records post 1870. If James really did avenge his father's murder, perhaps he and the family changed their names, perhaps fled to Mexico.
