Howard County, IN Biographies





WILLIAM COOPER, M. D., is a son of James and Delilah (Baker) Cooper, who were both natives of Virginia, and pioneer settlers of Ohio. The subject of this sketch was born in Preble County, Ohio, August 21, 1839. When fifteen years of age, his parents removed to Cass County, Ind. Mr. Cooper received a good education, and was a teacher for nearly four years in Cass and Miami Counties. Deciding upon the medical profession as his life work, he entered the office of his brother, Dr. John Cooper, and began the study of this most important science; under the tutelage and instruction of his brother, he remained nearly four years. He then entered the Eclectic Medical College of Cincinnati in 1866, and, in 1867, graduated from that institution. At Burlington, Ind., he commenced business, and remained in active and successful practice ten years, extending his labors in the counties of Cass, Howard, Carroll and Clinton. In 1876, Dr. Cooper removed to Kokomo, intending to retire from practice; but the eminent reputation attained by him has forced him to continue, and he is now attending to a large and lucrative patronage. As a physician, Dr. Cooper keeps up with the advancement of his profession; as a citizen, he is liberal minded and public spirited; and socially is a cultivated and genial gentleman. He is a member of the A., F. & A. M. and I. O. O. F. fraternities, and a member of the Board of Health. Dr. Cooper was united in marriage with Miss Eliza A. Newcomb, daughter of John and Emily (Braden) Newcomb. Mrs. Cooper is a native of Ohio, born in Darke County in 1845. By this union there are four children - Sarah F., wife of Dr. Lovell, Anna L., Armintie A. and Ronoldes M.
