Dawson W. Cooley is president of the Oxford Bank in Sumner County. His home has been in Kansas for upwards of half a century, and while his years have been chiefly employed in the banking business, he has also identified himself with various other enterprises for the good and upbuilding of this state. Mr. Cooley is one of the surviving veterans of the great Union army during the Civil war. He served during the first two years of that struggle in one of the noted regiments of New York State. His enlistment was in Company C of the Ninth New
Edward M. Cooley was born in San Bernardino County, California, November 23, 1859. His father, George Cooley, president of the board of supervisors, taught night school for some two or three years. Our subject’s educational advantages were limited. He received his principal schooling at a log schoolhouse about six miles from his home. He now owns a fine ranch of sixty acres, and has been very successful as a general farmer and stock-raiser. He was married March 4, 1882, to Miss Mary McCrary, daughter of Abner McCrary, a sketch of whose life appears elsewhere in this work. They have two
George Cooley, President of the Board of Supervisors of San Bernardino County, is one of the pioneers in this valley. As a farmer he has been eminently successful. An Englishman by birth, and a sailor by occupation, he brought with him to America the push and determination characteristic of his country-men, and a practical knowledge of human nature gained by his experiences as a sailor on the “high seas.” He was born in Kent, England, in 1831, and served four years’ apprenticeship as a sailor. May 11, 1853, when eleven miles north of Monte Christo, in the West India Islands,

The subject of this sketch is an entirely self-made man, his education being such as he could pick up, as it were, on the way; but by personal observation and extensive reading he has surpassed many who have had the best educational advantages. As a businessman he has been eminently successful. He was
Charles Cammillus Cooley is a Southern Californian by birth, a son of George and Ellen Cooley, well-known pioneers in this county. He was born March 5, 1861. His first real-estate purchase was thirty acres in Washington district, which he improved and lives on at present. He is a young and enterprising farmer and bids fair to honor himself and his calling. October 31, 1886, he was married to Miss Nettie Crandel, of Warm Creek district, a daughter of Milen Crandel, one of the first settlers in this county.
George Mills Cooley, the eldest of fourteen living children, nine sons and five daughters of George and Ellen Tolputt Cooley, was born in Utah in 1856, and crossed the plains an infant in his mother’s arms, drawn by ox teams, to California. His parents are both natives of the county of Kent, England, and were married on shipboard while crossing the Atlantic to the United States. They settled in the San Bernardino valley, south of the city, and the subject of this memoir grew up to man-hood on the beautiful ranch where they now reside, and where he mastered the
