Mr. Newton C. Cooper Answers Final
Call At Ripe Old Age

A number of years ago Mr. Cooper sustained a broken leg, which healed badly, and he has since been forced to go on crutches, but his general health had seemed to be very good for one of his age. He was eighty years of age the 10th of last March and was a native
of Trigg county, and had spent practically all his life in the community where he died.
Mr. Cooper is survived by his second wife and sixteen children as follows: Esq. J. C. Cooper; Charley Cooper; Mrs. Ben Wadlington, Arthur Cooper; Mrs. Robt. Oliver; Mrs. Sam Oliver; Mrs. Roy Tooke; Elbert Cooper; Luke Cooper; Seth Cooper; Ollie Cooper and Josh Cooper of this county; Ed Cooper, of Ballard county. T. C. Cooper, of Oklahoma; Mrs. Cortez Cunningham, of Tennessee; Mrs. Berry Wolfe, of Missouri.
His remains were laid to rest yesterday afternoon in the old Permetus Boyd grave-yard, several miles west of here, in the presence of quite a crowd of friends and loved ones.
