By 1840 he was in Wolf Island Township, Scott County, Missouri. In the Census, he’s listed as having 3 white males under 5, one white male between 20 and 30, one white male between 30 and 40 (presumably himself at 35), a white female between 5 and 10, another white female between 10 and 15, and a white female between 30 and 40 (presumably his first wife, Ann Eliza McDonald born May 15, 1806).

They picked up the family and moved to Milam County, Texas in 1876 because, according to my Grandmother’s recollection of family lore, the carpetbaggers had cleaned them out after the Civil War. They stayed in Milam County, Texas for several years until William Grundy Cooley died. The family moved back to Tennessee for a year and then moved back to Texas. William Grundy Cooley died sometime prior to 1880. My best guess would put his death in 1878.

Re: above note. Joseph Webster is also on the same page. Evidently, Joseph and his wife died by 1850 and orphans are living with W G.

Also living with them are:
1.Nancy P. Webster – 14
2.E. J. Webster – 11 (female).
3.E.E. Webster – 9 (female).

These are the daughters of Elizabeth “Betsey” McDonald (Ann Eliza’s sister) and Joseph Webster. In Webster Cemetery, Mississippi County, Missouri there are markers that give the birth and death dates of Ann Eliza Cooley (d. March 24, 1851), Betsey McDonald wife of Joseph Webster (b. Nov. 20, 1808 d. May 5, 1843), and Joseph Webster (b. June 15, 1800 d. Aug. 15, 1844).

Also from Mississippi County, Missouri, Deed Record Book: Eliza Jane Webster and Elvira Elizabeth, minors. Estate #1743 Box #55 – Guardian William G. Cooley, minor heirs of Joseph Webster deceased.

Betsey and Joseph also had another older daughter and son: William J. Webster and Mary E. Webster. I have no birthdates for them.
