Clergyman Wm. Hy. Green.

I recall mention in the family that the Coopers were from Preston. One note here is that on the marriage registration it says that the mother of the bride is Lavinia Emma Mathewson. This is an error. Lavinia had a sister Emma. Kate's oldest sister was Lavinia Emma Himes prior to her marriage to Alvin Coleman. This may be where someone got confused.
