The Cooper family may have traveled in the Daniel D. McArthur company. Henry Cooper's name, with a notation that four were in the family, is listed in a McArthur company record book of teamsters and passengers. However, a Henry Cooper, traveling with a wife and two children, is listed among people who left the outfitting place with that company. The Seeley company left two weeks before the McArthur company, so it's difficult to understand what may have happened. It's possible that the McArthur record book was a planning agenda, but the Cooper family were able to leave earlier.
