The Cooley Family Association of America
Mortimer Elwyn Cooley, Founder
In response to the call of Mortimer Elwyn Cooley, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, 30 Cooleys met in Springfield, Massachusetts on August 15, 1936 and organized The Cooley Family Association of America. Electing Dean Cooley as first president, they initiated a project which has been moving forward ever since. Organized to ensure the completion and publication of THE COOLEY GENEALOGY, the Association is pledged to commemorate the founding of the Cooley family in America and achievements of its members, to accumulate and preserve the records of the family, and to search out origins of the family overseas.
