Biographical Sketch of Dea. Sherman Cooper

DEA. SHERMAN COOPER, son of Dea. John and Mary Sherman Cooper, came to this town when he was ten years of age, and six years after shouldered his musket and joined the Revolutionary army. He married Mary Powers, by whom he had ten children, six sons and four daughters. On the death of his father he was chosen deacon of the Congregational Church, which office he held until his death. He was a farmer in moderate circumstances, honest in his deal, benevolent in his disposition, temperate in his habits, and devoted to his religious faith. He was gifted, outspoken, and full of anecdote and good humor. He died in 1850, aged 88 years.
