The 1870 Census has Abram as 27 and Carrie as 19.  The reason we have suspected that his age was not correct
is because Carrie was born in January 1840, which would have made h 30 years of age in 1870 when this Census
was taken.  Everyone on the page is a ditto for being born in AL.  The 1880 Census has her as 30 and the 1900
Census has her as 55.  Before she died, we use to correspond with Ida's Granddaughter, Shirely J. White Johnson.
We always joked that as the years went by Mary always got younger.  She was the oldest child of William and Mary
Crawford.  I could never find Abram in any Census Records with the date 1843.  On John Nathan's Death Certificate
all I can tell is that his Father's name started with an "A".  Some of the people filling out these reccords could not spell.
On the 1880 Census Records it has John and Ida'sFather born in Arkansas.  John and Ida were boh born in Macon
County, AL.  We have been there and they lost most of the records in a fire.  Mary moved to Talladega, AL, married
William Pennington in 1874 and the children lived and died in Talladega County.  Abram died between 1870 and 1874.
John Nathan Hooper's side of the family says he went to Macon, GA to a funeral of a relative, took sick and died.  The
Ida side ofthe family said he went down near Montgomery to a funeral where he took sick and died.  Both Macon County
and Selma are near Montgomery and we wondered if Macon County may have been mixed up with Macon, GA.

I have never found any land recorded for Abram or Abraham in AR or AL that I thought was close enough to be
the one we're looking for.  I have a lot of records of Hoopers that never checked out.
