Our Extended Family

Welcome to the Cooper's Homepage. Please excuse our dust. I will be updating this site as soon as possible. We moved recently from our previous site on and are not completely settled yet.

Come in and make yourself comfortable

Hello, Welcome to our home. Come in and make yourself comfortable. This is our home in cyberspace, where all of our friends and relatives can come and visit, to share our moments and efforts.

We will be doing more updating on the Vincent Myfamily site, than we will be doing on this site. Please request access to the myfamily site, if you want to have updates for this information. If you are doing a search on the Freefind search vehicle, please contact me by email (listed below) and I will see if there is any information, that I can send you, about possible connections in our research.

Our major surnames on these pages are:


Emerson Ellis Blacksheep?Oct.2008

In 2003, my major discovery was the many connecting lines that include my grandmother's (on my father's side)Edwards family. They include many familiar surnames of people, who originated in Long Island, Suffolk County, New York all the way back to Colonial days. Interestingly enough, some of my husband's (Bill Cooper)Vincent lines also originated there, making us related to some of the same people, but so far not to each other.

For more about the EDWARDS connected lines, as well as HAMMERSLEY, OSBORNE, DENTON, VAIL lines, check out this link.

We have made a "MyFamily" site for the Joseph Vincent Sr. line, which is by invitation only,which requires a user name and password. It is specifically for people researching or related to, the Joseph Vincent (and Rosanna Poole) line of VINCENT. We research very broadly, so if you are interested in any of the surnames listed above, you may find some documentation and other information, on the myfamily site, which is not listed in the public site (Geocities) . If you are at all interested in these lines, please request an invitation to the site, by emailing me. We will be glad to include you in these sites. You will find obits, pictures and other files directly related to the line, which can be downloaded as you wish.

I also began researching the surname of VAIL, for a friend who relates to Kansas VAILS. I have researched the major lines of VAIL and discovered that both Bill and I are related to VAILS at some point. They originated in England and were found in Long Island, Suffolk County, NY in Colonial times. My friend's Vails were in Labette and Montgomery Co.,Kansas. Other surnames associated with this area of research include Wallingford, Majors, Worley and Taylor. I would be happy to share any information about these lines.

I wish to acknowledge the impact of the literary works of previous researchers on my work. Mr.Eugene Vincent produced the book, which I lovingly call "Vincent Big Book" in my records. Mrs. Imogene Vincent produced the work, which I lovingly call, "Vincent Update Book". I appreciate the clues that they left for me. There are many more who have helped with this work in progress, many of whom are thanked on these pages.
