  1. Where can one find more information about the family and home? I’ve done some quick searches, but nothing has surfaced.

    Thank you!

    1. Allison – not real sure. I’ve learned through word of mouth. Cooper Family owned the home for 100 years and were (are) well known in Franklinton. I’ve been told Thurston Cooper, the young son in the photo, became owner of the home. His widow, Alma, sold the property in 2000. You may have luck searching for Thurston and Alma Cooper. Good luck – Would love an update if you learn more.
