Good stuff!! Thank you!! John Cooper is my 11th Great Grandfather (paternal side). This is by far the most information I've read on any one. Luckily others has inserted your blog URL in their trees so I could find this.

So happy to find this. John Cooper is my 8th Great Grandfather (paternal side). I've been to East Haven and seen the Iron Works where he worked. There is also an enormous row of Coopers buried in North Haven, CT. Much history in these parts. Also, an excellent map of the early New Haven Colony showing John Cooper's house & land.

Thanks so much for all the detail. John Cooper is a 10th great grandfather on my father's side of the family. This will help on my next rip to New Haven.

Glad it was useful≥ It was fun putting this together.

Hi, Bill.
You wrote: "John Cooper married his first wife, Mary Woolen (1614-1668), in England around 1635 and she was the mother of all of his children. Mary’s father was John Woolen, born in England around 1575. He married his second wife, Jane (Woolen) Hall, about 1679 in New Haven. She was the widow of John Hall of Wallingford, Connecticut." Can you tell me what the source for this is? I have been unable to verify. Also, was Jane Woolen the sister of Mary Woolen?

It was likely Jacobus, Donald Lines, Families of Ancient New Haven, vols. 1-9., Genealogical Publishing Company, Baltimore, 1923. I did this over 10 years ago so not complexity sure.
