COOPER, CORDER, QUALLS, THOMPSON posted by George Corder on Tuesday, January 28, 1997

Rosy B. QUALLS died in Miller Co. on Oct. 19, 1916. Does anyone have any information on her. Did she have a daughter (or granddaughter)named Anna CORDER whose father was Moses A. CORDER from Dunklin Co., Missouri. Anna CORDER married Paul THOMPSON in Dunklin Co. and had a daughter named Mabel. She divorced THOMPSON and married Ben COOPER and they had a daughter named Sarah. Anna died about 1917 (where or when ?). Ben COOPER took both girls and moved to Cabot , Ark.. Ben and his father William H. COOPER were killed by a train on Dec. 6, 1920 in Cabot, Ark.. The little girls her put in a orpanage temporary. Frank COOPER adopted Sarah and raised her and Mabel never saw her again after she left the ophanage. My grandfather was Moses CORDER and his first child Anna is a missing link in my family history. My Dad would like to know what happened to his step sister and the missing years of his father life when he was also ophaned at age 8 until he reappeared 12 years later.Will share any connecting families link and history with you. Thanks George Corder, HC 67 box 178C, Salem, Ark. 72576
