Cooley Heads of Household, 1860

My Cooleys have been identified back to John Cooley, born by 1740 and possibly died c1811 in Casey county KY. In a bid to try to connect him to other Cooleys, I have created this index of every Cooley male I could find born by 1820 in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. Possibly missing, however, are older male Cooleys, such as fathers, uncles or brothers, who are not listed as the head of household. I hope to remedy that.

I'm doing this principally for the reasons outlined in my study of the Cooleys on the 1810 census for Pennsylvania, as well as to try to identify some of the seven brothers of the Reuben Ransom Cooley (Rhuben), listed here in under Jackson County, Indiana.

This list can be sorted by first name, age, birth place of state of residence. The notes are mine and are based on my own interpretations of this and other data. Any additions or corrections will be welcomed. Additional information about some of these people can be found at y-desc.html.
