Greenbury Cooper Family

Greenbury Cooper (1801-1834) and Margaret Stoltz (1787-1854) married in 1822. They are both buried at Sharon Methodist Church in Lewisville. These dates are from the cemetery records book - was she really that much older than he was?

Second Generation

Children of Greenbury Cooper and Margaret Stoltz
Mary L. Cooper (1823-1899) m. Augustine Smith (1824-1879)
Elizabeth Cooper (1825-1900) m. Joshua Leinbach (1819-1886)
Nancy P. Cooper (1827-1906) apparently did not marry
Thomas Cooper (ca. 1830-1858)

Third Generation

Children of Mary L. Cooper and Augustine Smith
Isaac Thomas Smith (1849-1854)
Julia Martha Smith (1852-1854)
Robert Asbury Smith (1853-1854)
Olietha Emily Smith (1854-1937)
Adelaide Elizabeth Smith (1856-1930) m. John Emory Holder (1854-1934)
Laura V. Smith (1858-1940) m. John William Doub (1848-1928)
Flora A. Smith (1860-1884)
Edwin Augustine Smith (1862-1940)
Alexander Mathias Smith (ca. 1864-1940)
Isabell M. Smith (1867-1951)

Estate papers at the NC state archives were filed in 1946 for Oscar E. Holder, son of Adelaide Elizabeth Smith and John Emory Holder. These papers give information about this family pertinent to Augustine Smith's land, and indicate that Augustine and Mary Cooper Smith had ten children altogether, three of whom died in childhood. We had identified eight children from census and cemetery records, and are assuming that Julia and Robert buried at Sharon Methodist, both of whom died in June 1854 as did Isaac Thomas Smith, are the remaining two.
