He had taken a horse out of the barn and tied the horse to a post when he dropped dead. Heart trouble is assigned as the cause of his death.

    Notes:

    Census: 1860, Mill spring, Wayne County, Kentucky page 318

    Harmon Cooper married Mary "Polly" Adkins, daughter of Benjamin Adkins, on May 27, 1830 in Monticello, Kentucky. Their first child, Telitha Leanne, was born on April 21, 1831. Harmon made himself active in the community as early as 1831. He was appointed overseer of the road being prepared near Mt. Pisgah. Then he was sworn in along with Waughn, Lovelace, and Koger to review a road leading from Little South Fork to the State Line.

    Harmon first purchase of land was in 1836, Parmley to Cooper, Book G, page 123. Harmon does not show up in Wayne County until the 1850 Census. The Land Deeds and Court Records prove that he was certainly in Wayne County before the 1850 Census however.

    Even though Harmon could not read or write, he appears to have been a very astute businessman. Further he was a very prolific man and was the father of 21 children. Fifteen of his children were by Mary Adkins, his first wife. They were married 38 years. After Mary died, Harmon married Martha Pyles Slagel. Martha first marriage was to Keelan Slagle and they had two daughters, Isabelle (Belle) and Vadie. Martha's mother and father were William and Narcissis Pyles. Martha was 30 years old when she married Harmon Cooper and they had six children together. Harmon was 73 years old when his last child Rosa, was born.

    Harmon dressed like a "southern gentleman" of the 1800's. His dress was usually of darker materials and his waist coat was cut just below the hips with trousers to match with narrow cut legs. His hat was of a wide brim and he wore boots that came up almost to his knees.
