Hello: My name is Don Cooper. I am a retired school administrator with a little time on my hands. I have been researching my family tree for sometime now with little success. My mother, Ruth M Mccraw married/eloped/etc with a man named James Cooper. I was born in Columbus, Ohio in 1946. As they moved frequently, little records remained. My mother moved my sister and I to Philadelphia in the late 1950's, supposedly after my father died. As my sister and I were sent away to a state run school, my mother put as little information as possible on the admission application.

According to the 1930 Census my mother was age 5. The other household members were:

a. John McCraw age 48 - Lizzie McCraw age 36 - Warner McCraw - age 12 - Charles N. McCraw - age 9 - Norris E. McCraw - age 6 - Willard McCraw - age 3

A help you may give would be greatly appreciated!
