Josina Orchard Cooper
About 1747, she married twenty-one-year-old Albany native Jacob Cooper. By 1768, seven children had been christened at the Albany Dutch church where she had been a regular baptism sponsor over several decades.
In 1790, Cooper's Watervliet home included nine family members and was located near the houses of other Cooper family members.
Jacob Cooper died in 1813. He left a will. We seek additional information on Josina's later life and passing.
