Query: COOPER

I am inquiring about the parents of a Milton W. Cooper, my Great Grandfather. Milton was born in 1837 and died in 1897 in Logan Co., Illinois. His obit describes him as a native of Indiana. However, in the 1860 census of Logan Co., IL his birthplace is listed as Illinois; in the 1870 census of Logan Co., IL his birthplace is listed as IN; and in the 1880 census of Logan Co., IL, his bithplace is listed as OH. If his obit is to be believed, he moved from IN to IL at about the age of 22 or before 1860.
