I am going to include this information on Ross Henry Cooper just in case there is something that you don't have.
first marriage
Ross Henry Cooper, merchant

both born and living in Pugwash
his parents: Ross H and Ann, Merchant

second marriage

Articia Hodson
born and living in River Philip
both are widowed
m. October 27, 1880
His parents: Ross H and Ann
Her parents: Edward and Mary Davison, blacksmith
Witnesses: John Cooper and R N Cooper

Her first marriage was to
Joseph Harrison Hodgson

I couldn't find a death for him but did find one child

Ernest Edgar Hodgson
b. June 13, 1868, Farmington

I haven't been able to find any other information on this person but thought it was interesting that there is a son named Ernest E. born in 1887 to Robert and Martha Cooper. (perhaps named for Ernest Edgar Hodgson)

I've been reading the history of the Cooper's and I wanted to let you know that my Grandmother was Alma Craig Cooper born 1889 to Ross Henry Cooper Jr and Articia.  Alma married Ernest Fraser Munro Margaree Harbour.  My father E Fraser Munro went to school in Springhill and I always wondered why until I read your history.

Hello Mora,
Glad it was of use.
We do have more information on the Cooper family in case you are interested.
My wife, Betty (Cooper) is a great grand daughter of Ross Henry's older brother John Cooper.
