      I also have a cemetery record for the Winters Cemetery that I can copy also. In it there is a grave with a broken stone for a child of Henry and Anna. No name. The cemetery record says "baby? Broken marker looks like July 4 1858 ? age 2 y 20 da." I have this child on my family group sheet, and calculated the birth as 14 Jun 1856. Also, in Anna's obituary it states that she was the mother of ten children, six of whom - four daughters and two sons- are living.
      This is all I have on the Henry and Anna Cooper family."

      3. Per the newspaper "The Winters Express," Jan. 30, 1869, p. 1:
      "Deaths. Egbert H. Cooper Jan. 26, 1869 age 17 years 10 months 16 days."

      BURIAL:
      1. Per tombstone list on file prepared by Brett T. Dunham, Manager of the Winters Cemetery District, 415 Cemetery Drive, P.O. Box 402, Winters, CA, 95694, phone 530-795-2475, email wcd415@sbcglobal.net. The following are buried in:
      Sect. 6, Lot 118, Cooper Plot, all surnamed Cooper:
      -Anna M., Dec 9, 1820-Dec 16, 1891, wife of H. Cooper.
      -Baby ?. Broken marker looks like -July 4, 1858? age 2 y 20 da.
      -Charles C., 1860-June 11, 1943.
      -Egbert H., -Jan 26, 1875, age 17-10-16, son of H. and A.M.

      -Mary, 1863-Aug 23 1938.
      -Wealthya, Mar 23, 1865 age 71y.

      2. Per photos of tombstone inscriptions provided to me by Rea Jenkins 19 Jan 2011:
      -"Eula D. Cooper, Jan. 26, 1875 - Feb. 7, 1959."
      -"John F. Baker, Died Feb. 28, 1890, aged 49 yrs. 7 mos. 8 ds. Native of Mass. Susan Jane, wife of J.F. Baker, died Feb. 14, 1903, aged 55 yrs., 11 mos. 8 days. Native of Illinois. At Rest." [Tombstone clearly gives John's death as 28 Feb, which then makes his birth date 20 Jul 1840, both of which are at variance to what dates I have been using.]
      -Military tombstone: "William Elmer Baker, California, ___ Am. Service, August 30, 1932."
      -"George D. Cooper, Oct. 11, 1862-Nov. 12, 1958."

      -"Egbert H. Son of H. & A.M. Cooper, died Jan 26, 1869. Aged 18? ys 10 ms. 16 ds." [This gives a different birth date of 10 Mar 1851 compared to what we have used of 16 Oct 1851.]
      -"Charles C. Cooper, 1860-1943."
      -"In memory of Wealthy A. Cooper who died March 23, 1865, aged 71 years. [Includes photo of illegible poem.]"
