James Erwin Cooper, born March 4, 1790, at Penn's
Manor, died, and is buried at Brownsville, Penna.

In the direct line of Sir Anthony Ashley Cooper, Earl of
Shaftsbury, his American ancestry dates to 1687, when


William and Margaret Cooper settled at Cooper's Point,
four miles from Philadelphia, Penna., having purchased all
the lands between the Delaware river and Cooper creek, and
three miles up the creek. Sir Ashley Cooper, the great
surgeon, and J. Fenimore Cooper, the novelist, were mem-
bers of this family. Of Quaker descent, James Erwin
Cooper settled on Canoe creek, Jefferson Co., Penna., in
1833, and later removed to Punxsutawney. His wife,
Mary or Mollie Brady Cooper, as she was familiarly called,
was the good angel of Punxsutawney. Of Presbyterian
extraction, Scotch-Irish born and bred, her christian char-
acter appealed to all with whom she came in contact. She
was instrumental in organizing the first Sunday school in
the village. It was held in the old school house on the
public square, and she compelled her children to attend in
their bare feet, so as to be on an equality with the poorer
children who could not afYord shoes. She furnished the
library for the school. She and her husband were charitable
and rich in all the graces which combined to make them ad-
mired and popular in social and domestic life. Their works
lived after them in the fond remembrance of many who
loved them.

Brady, and came to Detroit, Mich., with his father in 1827,
from Sackett's Harbor, N. Y. In June, 1832, he accom-
panied Colonel Whistler, U. S. A., who was in command
of two companies of U. S. troops sent from Fort Niagara
to Chicago, 111., to take part in suppressing the Black Hawk
Rebellion. He remained there after the settlement of the
Indian difficulties as Post Sutler, and returned to Detroit
in 1837, where he established himself in business. In 1867
his health obliged him to withdraw, and he took a trip toi
Germany, where he died. His commercial life was a con-
tinuation of successes. In connection with Mr. C. A. Trow-
bridge, his business house was established, and was known
as the firm of Brady and Trowbridge until 1850, when it
was changed to S. P. Brady & Company, the father taking
the stand alone, and subsequently including his oldest son.
Since the death of Samuel Preston Brady, and for five years
previous,the firm has been quoted as "Brady and Company."

ward-ers, and the Mining Supply business, their trade hav-
ign been largely in connection vv^ith the Lake Superior Min-
ing industry since its earliest days.

eyes, and had much of the heroic spirit of her Brady ances-

selfish love. She was a sister of Drusilla Brady Rose.
