Notes for Marcome [Marcum] COOPER:
From Appendix D [The Marcum Cooper Family] of The Rackley Family of Nash County, North Carolina, by Timothy Wiley Rackley, pages 739-756 [source serial #090]:

Marcum was a son of David Cooper and his wife Mary, who were in Nash County as early as 1748. David eventually moved into Wake County, North Carolina, and owned land on Little River. He later moved to the Spartanburg District of South Carolina. In his will dated 17 March 1792, David Cooper "gave and bequeathed unto his son Marcome Cooper three head of sheep which he hath already." (Last will and testament of David Cooper, Spartanburg District, South Carolina.)

On 22 October 1764, Marcum Cooper purchased 100 acres on the north side of Sapony Swamp on Stoney Branch from Edward Moore. On 3 November 1770, Marcome Cooper purchased 417 acres on the bank of Sapony Swamp at the mouth of Stoney Branch from William Worrel and his wife Elizabeth. In 1785 he purchased 206 acres, 165 acres, and 75 acres of land holdings ranged along the south side of Roady Branch and the north side of Sapony. His wife was Sarah (Sally) Jackson, daghter of George Jackson. According to family Bible records of David Cooper (son of Marcum Cooper) and Marcum's last will and testament [Nash County, North Carolina deed books, marriage register, and estates records], eight children were born to Marcum and Sally: Vinson, Hardy, David, Rhoda, George, and William (Billy).

  Notes for Levi Thomas FAWKS:
From History of Howard and Chariton Counties, Missouri, page 501

The original settlers of Wayland township, were generally from Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia.

Among the early pioneers was Levi Fawks, Sr. , a native of Georgia. He married a Miss White, of North Carolina, in Wilson County, Tennessee, in 1806. They came to St. Charles county, Missouri in 1817. They moved thence to Callaway county, in 1823, and finally settled in Chariton county,, in April 1825. Mr. Fawks settled what is known as the G. G. Dameron place, where he lived for several years. There was no white man living north of him at that time. While Mr. Dameron was residing at the place, and while he was absent from his home, on an expedition against the Indians, Mrs. Dameron placed two of her oldest children on the house-top to look out for the Indians. At another time she carried the children into a corn field and spent the night, being afraid to remain in the cabin, where she would be exposed to the tomahawk and scalping-knife of the red man. The family subsequently crossed the Middle Fork of the Chariton river, and lived for ten years at Fawks' Mill. Mr. Fawks and his wife have been dead many years. They had eleven children, whose names were as follows, in the order of their ages: Malissa, William, Mary, Sabrina, Alfred, Edward, Levi, Nancy, Littleburg, Josephine and George; some of them were born in Tennessee, others in Missouri. Four of these are now living, Alfred, Edward, Nancy, and George; all in Chariton county and near each other. The last to die of this family of brothers and sisters was Levi Fawks, Jr., whose death occurred in March 1883. Levi and the brother Alfred lived on a farm near Prairie Hill, which they settled about forty years ago. The family is a numerous one, the children and grandchildren numbering more than one hundred persons now living.
