Finally, with David's help, I have the web address for these two stores.
Yes, in the second picture of the old rock store, also a Cooper store, my grandfather,William A. Cooper, Sr. built this store and I lived there from the time I was born until I was about 3 years old or until 1945.

That is really interesting...
I had to forward to a few of my friends.
I had no idea that existed.
Thanks for sharing.
