John is a common name, and so is Cooper. I suggest that you talk to your family and relatives and ask them what they know. If you can narrow down to the place he was born or died, this will help too.

Do you have a birth certificate of your Grandmother? If she is deceased, have you seen the obit from the newspaper?

If you know the name of your great grand mother than you can look for a marrigate certificate for her. Try familysearch.org

Do you know the name of Great Aunts or Uncle this will help you in your search.

It is important to work your way back in your search......start with your self, than your parents, than your grandparents, than your great grandparents. There are books in the library on searching your family tree, and you can get more suggestions on the inter net.

Check with your library to see if they have Ancestry in their data bases, and you can search there.

Once you have more information on John Thomas Cooper and you need help then I suggest doing another posting. The more information you can give helps others to connect to the right person.

Have fun with your research.
