Anna Elizabeth Cooley b. 20 Dec 1830 in Columbus, Hickman County, KY and d. 21 Feb, 1862 Mississippi County, MO. She m. Isaiah Alexander Faris 22 Dec, 1846 in Mississippi County, MO. Isaiah Faris' mother was Betsy Crockett Faris of Northern Section of S.C.. This family removed to Obion County, TN in 1829 (Davy Crockett's Congressional District) after Davy visited this Northern section of S.C. (formerly N.C.). The Faris family lived in Obion County, TN from 1829- 1838 when they removed to Scott County, MO. In 1845, Wolf Island, Mississippi County, MO was formed from Scott County, MO. I calculate the birth of Anna Elizabeth as possibly being in Hickman County, KY 20 Dec, 1830. Her uncles Seth and George W. Cooley appear just N. of Faris family (Obion County, TN) in Weakley County, TN in 1830. Her aunt Elizabeth Cooley m. Joseph Webster resides in Scott County, MO in 1840. Her sister Ann m. Isaac Pile (Pyle) resides in Scott County, MO also in 1840. This is the same family. Jonathan Cooley, father/husband apparently dies before this family removes to MO. I believe he died in Marshall County? KY before 1939.
