John (Stumpy) Cooper




This is a follow up article to add further info gleaned from various sources some consists of newly found records.

Fellow researcher Mark Hughes has found what he thinks may be the baptism for John Cooper known as "Stumpy Jack" due to a accident in early life that caused him to lose his right hand, as always when not 100% it is left open for correction and amendment.

Thanks to a friend I have I believe at last a photo of "Stumpy" I have shown it to his great grandaughter Kim Hughes who has said its the image of her g/dad ! so that backs up my thoughts as in the picture is clearly a stump for his right hand and also a pet Raven sat on the tilt cart which was mentioned in a JGLS Article and from family lore.
