Genealogical and Personal History of Centre and Clinton County, Pennsylvania, 1912

Rev. Samuel M. Cooper Biography

Rev. Samuel M. Cooper graduated at Jefferson College in 1836, and in 1838 was received into the Huntingdon Presbytery as a candidate for the ministry. He completed his theological course at Princeton. He was licensed to preach April 16, 1840.

In that year he married Miss Nancy Forsythe, and soon after received a call from the Lick Run congregation, previously under the care of Rev. James Linn. He preached at Lick Run from 1840 to 1852, when failing health compelled his withdrawal from the charge.

After that he continued to conduct the Jacksonville Female Seminary, which he had established while in the Lick Run pastorate.

His wife died, and as she had been the mainstay in the conduct of the school, he gave up the seminary and accepted a call to supply the church of Little valley. While in that charge be died in July, 1860. He left one daughter and two sons.
