Mark Anthony Cooper


Mark Anthony Cooper

Mark Anthony Cooper (April 20, 1800 – March 17, 1885) was a Eugenius Aristides Nisbet.

Cooper was born near Seminole Wars. (He was a Major in these campaigns.)

In 1833, Cooper served in the Cartersville, Georgia, on March 17, 1885, and was buried there.

The iron works included large facilities e.g. a plant for making nails and another plant for making pots and pans out of iron. But the most famous plant was one for making cannon during the Civil War. These cannon were highly regarded for their higher quality (not exploding as others did).

All these ventures in business were highly successful and Cooper was well off, but his iron works was confiscated after the Civil War and his investments in conferate notes and bonds that became worthless left him poor after a lifetime of hard work.

Further family history

Mark Anthony Cooper was the grandson of Capt Thomas Cooper of the Revolutionary War. And he is named for Capt Cooper's wife's family which traces its ancestry back to the famous Mark Anthony of Rome.

Capt Cooper moved to Powelton Area of central Georgia from Virginia and had a large family with many descendants-Iron Man Cooper being the most famous.
