*Cooper family on the river*
Morning, Matthew & steamboating colleagues,
Mat, just catching up on .org after a long absence due to family illness, deaths out of town. It's been one long seige for sure but apparently I missed some things.

I don't know about locating actual photographs of your ancestors so mentioned above. I did pull down WAY'S PACKET DIRECTORY, 1849-1983 locating in his detailed index listings for your Cooper ancestors beginning on Pg. 531 & 532 with ten entries. If you have the PACKET DIRECTORY you'll also find the number listing each name with the steamboats or other vessels they worked on giving details as only Capt. Fred Way could do. You could consult the 'Cincinnati Room - Rare Books/Inland Rivers Collection,' Cincinnati Public Library here on Vine Street for any possible listing of photos of your ancestors. Hope this helps in some feeble way. Cheers!
