  • Notes 
    • Joseph Cooper was the sixth child of Joseph Presley Ross, he was called by his middle name. Told by family members that prior to his death, he had been having pain in his side off and on for quite some time and finally went to a doctor in Greenwood MS. The doctor told him he should lose weight ,since his body fat was displacing his appendix and causing his pain. Against all advice ,he decided to have an appendectomy, which was preformed. A few days later he began to run high fever and severe pain. The incision was reopened and discovered he had gangrene had set in. He died shortly after at age 35. Never married, we presume that he is buried in Hickory Grove Cemetery where allot of other family members are buried.
