    Notes 
    • Both he and his father owned large acreages and resided about one mile south of Concord School on the Clinton-Roseboro highway, and there they are both buried. Both of the graves have practically been forgotten, for they are now being plowed over Taken from the Religious Herald, February 22, 1828, pg 27: "Died, in Sampson county, NC, after a few days' illness, the Rev. Fleet Cooper, in the seventy-ninth year of his age. The deceased had been an advocate for the doctrines of the cross in the Baptist church for fifty years, left behind him an unblemished reputation, and died in the full assurance of a glorious immortality. 'Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord, from henceforth; yea, saith the Spirit, for the rest from their labors and their works do follow them.'" "Resolved that these minutes contain an obituary notice of the death of Rev. FLEET COOPER, of Sampson county, who rested from his labors on January 28, 1828. Bro. Cooper was a faithful minister of the Gospel, incessantly toiling for the salvation of his fellow man. Few, if any, within our knowledge, have borne the burden and heat of the day more emphatically than brother Cooper. His circle of religious rounds was very large in which he was much beloved. Thus the routine of his ministerial and Christian duty ran around in the midst of the wearisome fatigue and privation for more than fifty years; and it was remarkable that his eyes were not dimmed, nor his force abated, relative to the great concerns of religion to the close of his toilsome pilgrimage. The subject of this notice as a man, sometimes appeared rather blunt in his manner on a superficial acquaintance, but was found to be essentially kind and polite on a further intercourse. His was the love which was free from dissimilation. His public discources were often a little frigid, but strictly Scriptural, generally doctrinal; though he excelled chiefly in practical and experimental preaching. these are impressions which will long remain in the hearts of many who have been refreshed and built up by his searching addresses. But his Bible and his pulpit are now exchanged, no doubt, for the sweet visions of eternal blessedness. The large church on the Coharies mourns the loss of so bright a patron and so good an earthly shepherd." "Let me die the death of the righteous and let my last end be like his." -Goshon Association Obiturary

      The Reverend Fleet Cooper, Sr.

       

      "Our Heritage"

      By Claude Moore

       

      The Rev. Fleet Cooper, Sr., (1722-1795) was a pioneer Baptist minister in

      Sampson and Duplin Counties and was a prominent political figure during the

      American Revolution. According to a reliable genealogist, the Coopers were

      descended from at least four of the Barons who signed the Magna Carta and

      Fleet Cooper was descended from a brother of Anthony Ashley Cooper (Earl of

      Shaftsbury), who was one of the Lords Proprietors who were granted the

      Carolinas in 1663 by Charles II.

       

      The first Cooper to come to America was James Cooper, a son of George

      Ashley Cooper. He came from Stratford on the Avon and landed in Philadelphia

      in 1682. James Cooper was a member of the Society of Friends. He married

      and had two daughters and four sons: Isaac, Samuel, William and Benjamin.

       

      Benjamin Cooper (1701-1776) was married in 1720 to Elizabeth Kelly and in

      1725 he moved to Isle of Wight County, Virginia, and then to Loudon County,

      Virginia. They had several children among who was Fleet Cooper, the subject

      of this article.

       

      Fleet Cooper was born in 1722 in Philadelphia and spent his youth in

      Virginia. We know nothing about his early education but he was married in

      1747 to Margaret Coore of Loudon County, Virginia, whose father, Thomas

      Coore, later move to Northampton County, N.C.

       

      He moved first to Dobbs County, and in 1764, he received a grant of land

      on Coharie Swamp in Sampson County. Later he received grants for more than

      a 1,000 acres of land. This was located at Concord, six miles west of

      Clinton on Highway 24. After the Coopers arrived in what is now Sampson

      County, they were members of Coharie Baptist (Rowan) Church, which was

      founded near Clinton in 1749. We do not know when he became a minister, but

      he was pastor of the Coharie Baptist Church from 1785 to 1787.

       

      At the beginning of the American Revolution Fleet Cooper, Sr. signed the

      "Oath of Allegiance and Abjuration" (1777). This qualified descendants for

      memberships in the Daughters of the American Revolution or Sons of the

      American Revolution. In 1784, when Sampson County was established, Fleet

      Cooper, Sr., was one of the 12 justices appointed to the Court of Pleas and

      Quarterly Sessions.

       

      The Coopers had the following children: John; Fleet, Jr.; William; Coore;

      Elizabeth; Grace; and Mary. Fleet Cooper, Jr., (1750-1828) was also a

      pioneer Baptist minister. He married Sarah Scott in 1777 and had the

      following children: Mrs. Elizabeth Pope (1779-1848); Wilson (1780-1857);

      John (1782-1832); Jacob (1783-1826); Daniel (1785-1851); Mrs. Nancy

      Blackburn (1793-1878); Mrs. Penelope Howard (1797-1881); Mrs. Dicey Howard

      (1798-1879); Mrs. Rhoda Bennett (1802-1862); Mrs. Sarah Porter; and Mrs.

      Mary Butler Sessoms. Grace Cooper married Lewis Holmes, a brother of

      Governor Gabriel Holmes and moved south. Elizabeth Cooper married a Mr.

      Wiggins. Mary Cooper married a Mr. Peterson.

       

      Many of the descendants of Fleet Cooper had been doctors, lawyers, and

      teachers and have been political leaders. The descendants are scattered all

      over the United States. They hold an annual family reunion in Salemburg,

      N.C.
