Daniel J. Cooper, a pioneer of Wasco county, died yesterday afternoon at the Good Samaritan hospital in Portland. Mr. Cooper was 88 years of age and is survived by his wife and 14 of their 15 sons and daughters.

Mr. Cooper was born in Tennessee but moved with his parents to Missouri when he was 2 years old. When he was 20 years of age Mr. Cooper came to California with an uncle, but returned to Missouri in 1861. He enlisted in Company D. of the 76th Missouri regiment, took part in several skirmishes and battles of the Civil war, and was honorably discharged with the rank of second lieutenant. He was one of the oldest members of the James W. Nesmith post of the G.A.R. here.

In 1863, with his wife and two children, one of whom was born on the plains, Mr. Cooper arrived in Oregon by ox-team, having made the journey with a train including his father and a large family of brothers and sisters. Settling in Polk county, Mr. Cooper remained for 20 years in the Willamette valley before coming to eastern Oregon where he lived on a ranch on the Ten Mile creek and in The Dalles.

In politics Mr. Cooper was Republican, and represented this section several times on committees to the state legislature. He was a delegate to the Republican national convention which nominated the late Warren G. Harding president.

William B. Hayden Buried on Tuesday

Farmed Most Of Life. Came From Nebraska to Oregon in 1900

William Bramwell Hayden was born at Springport, Jackson County, Michigan, April 4, 1850 and died Sunday Morning, February 17, 1935, at his home in Toledo, Oregon, aged 84 years, 10 months and 13 days.

When a young man he went to Illinois where on October 31, 1874, he was united in marriage with Miss Annie Pulyer. To this union six children were born, five of whom are still living: Mrs. N. H. Sherwood of Otter Rock, Mrs. C. H. Gleason, Geneva, Ohio, Kenneth H. of Saginaw, Michigan and Max B. and Fern N. of this city.

In 1884 the family moved to Fairfield, Nebraska, where they remained until 1900, when they moved to Oregon, spending five years near Portland, and coming to Toledo in October 1905, and where he resided until his death. His wife passed away about ten years ago, soon after they had celebrated their golden wedding anniversary.

Mr. Hayden followed farming most of his life, with the exception of a few years in the livery business in Nebraska. About fifteen years ago, he retired from active labor.

Mr. Hayden was a staunch republican and had very little faith in latterday theories of political leaders. He met his obligations as they became due and had a good word for all.

Funeral services were held at the Bateman Undertaking parlors at 9:00 p.m. Tuesday, the 19th, with Rev. R. A. Feenstra officiating. Interment was in the Newport cemetery immediately thereafter.
