1. John "Price" Cooper [son of  [William] was living in Tioga County, NY when he applied for a pension under the act of March 18, 1818.  That part of Tioga County later became a part of Tompkins Co., NY.  On March 18th 1818 Price Cooper age 62, provided in Tioga County open court a document concerning his pension, a listing of property in his possession: 1 old plough; 1 samll yoke of oxen,, 8 years old; 1 cow and 2 calves (small); 2 hogs; 5 pigs; 1 ox yoke of chain; 1 poor ax and hoe; 1 iron shovel; 2 old pitch forks; 1 old mattock; 1 old bush scythe; 1 old saddle; 2 old hay rakes; about 4 tons of hay; about 25 bushels oats; 1/4 acre potatoes; 1/2 acre poor flax; about 2 acres of corn, ordinary.  His debts were given as in promisary notes, book depts and judgements to total $70.50.  His occupation was given as laborer.  He had no wife and one son that was not named living with him who would be 21 the next May.  The clerk of the Tioga court valued the possessions on Sept. 9th 1820 as $92.74.
His DAR papers and probate records indicate his 2nd wife was named Elizabeth, maiden name unknown.  He has a DAR marker on his grave in the Old Episcopal Cemetery, South Danby, Tompkins Co., NY.    His name is listed on a bronze plaque in the Ithaca Post Office.  A listing "Revolutionary Soldiers buried in Tompkins Co., NY, gives his data as John Price Cooper, Grave marked by DAR Cayuga Chapter; 3rd Reg. Continental Line under Col. Thomas Craig.
1755 - 1827.

John Price Cooper died with out a written will, several people heard his last wishes.  William Nelson, a neighbor, in court said that he heard Price Cooper say to Henry and Alanson Cooper, " I want you to take my property and settle my affairs and permit my wife to live on the place and support her if I do not get well. "  John Cooper was also present at the time.  Price Cooper had been ill for 2  - 3 weeks, but he appeared to be fully rational and spoke deliberately.  John gave testimony saying, " I heard him say to Alanson and Henry to take his property and pay his bills and take care of the old lady and he wanted her to have support.  He said to Alanson, will you?  Alanson said yes.  The wife of Price was present."

Sally Shelden and husband Nemehiah Shelden
Mary Ostrander and husband David Ostrander
John Cooper
Esther Smith and husband Jonathan Smith
Alfred Cooper

Lists wife of Price Cooper to be Elizabeth.  No mention of a son Price Cooper.

Elizabeth (____________) Cooper wife of Price Cooper was married to him after 1818.  I would believe she was from around the Spencer, Tioga Co., NY, or Danby, Tompkins Co., area.

2.PRICE COOPER, son of John Price Cooper [ # 1. John Price - William ]  a record of Price Cooper found as being born 1789 in NY,  death 1857 in Buchanan, MI.  (one would wonder if this was a son of John Price Cooper, why his name was not mentioned in the records listed in the Surrogate Court, Tompkins Co., NY, at the time of his death in 1827?

This Price Cooper, is listed as having wife Lydia Chapman b. between 1780/1790, with children:  Unknown if this is correct for the amount of children born.

        Biography of JAMES L. BAKER

          Prominent among the younger members of the bar of Tompkins county is James L. Baker. Mr. Baker is descended from one of the earliest pioneers of the western part of the town of Ithaca. This pioneer was James Baker, great-grandfather of James L. Among his children was Lawrence Baker, who had a son named Jeremiah Mulford Baker, who was the father of James L.
          The mother of the latter was Mary J. Helms, of Montgomery, Orange county, N.Y. There was a family of six children, all but one of whom are living; four of them are sons.
          James L. Baker was born in Montgomery, Orange county, on the 2d of February, 1847. Six years of his life were passed in his native town,  when in 1853 his father removed to Enfield, Tompkins county, and purchased a farm of William Jewett, which has ever since remained as the homestead and still remains in possession of members of the family. His father died in October, 1882, and his mother in August, 1883.
          James L. Baker attended the common schools until he was eighteen years of age, when he entered the Ithaca Academy and there continued his studies until he was twenty-one, teaching a part of each year to earn the needed money to pay the expense of his education. He first taught in the oil region of Pennsylvania, and after that in districts in this county. He had early determined upon law as his life work and began his studies in the office of Beers & Howard. He was an ardent and earnest student and was admitted to the bar  on the 9th of February, 1871,  having previous to that date entered the Albany Law School from which he graduated after his admission to practice, in May, 1871. Mr. Baker is one of that large and honorable class of professional and business men who was forced to rely upon his own efforts to reach the goal which his ambition desired. As before noted, a large part of the expenses of his education, both in school and as a lawyer, he provided for himself. When he graduated from the law school he found himself in debt.
          Returning to the office of Beers & Howard he continued reading until January 1, 1872, when he opened an office in Ithaca.  He has ever since practiced alone, with the exception of intervals when he employed a salaried partner. This last mentioned fact is an indication of one of Mr. Baker’s strongest traits of character – self-reliance. While his practice has been of a general character, it has been and now is, very large, and has embraced cases of importance; but he has never felt impelled to share the responsibilities of his business with others. He has a modest and justifiable confidence in his own ability of safely represent the interests of his clients; and it is perfectly proper to state that his success has warranted his course of action. He holds the reputation of his profession high and is ever watchful of his own good repute. His industry is untiring and he never spares himself in the preparation of the cases entrusted to him. It is therefore not a marvel that he has been unusually successful in building up a large practice.   Mr. Baker is a consistent Republican in politics. He was chosen village attorney for the last time before the organization of the city government, and was the first city attorney. He has also been special county judge and was a prominent candidate for the office of county judge in 1891.
          Mr. Baker is a conspicuous member of the Order of Knights of Pythias, which he entered in 1874, having been a member of Cascadilla Lodge since that time. He is a past grand chancellor of the State of New York, and past supreme representative.
          Mr. Baker was married in 1878 to Annie M. Cooper, of Trumansburg, formerly of South Danby, daughter of Alanson Cooper, one of the old and most respected residents of that town.
