Cooley Heads of Household, 1860

This survey lists only male heads of household 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.

The 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 The Cooley Patrlineages.
