Lee Daniel Cooper was about 14 years old when the family went on a trip to make harvests along the way of cotton corn, etc. They had a large travelers wagon with bunk beds and a kitchen on the back and two horses named Buttons and Bald Eagle. Sylvester, Earl and Lee rode on horses. The younger children rode in the wagon. At night they would stop at a wagon yard (like today's motel) where a shed for the wagon and two horse stalls were furnished. In back was a place to build a fire to cook on. It was up high enough so one didn't have to squat down to tend the fire. The family lived in the wagon while staying there. He and Sylvester Adelbert "Curley" Cooper were worked at McCurdy Dairy farm just outside of Cuero, Texas. The 1930 Federal Census enumerated him as a member of Marshall Jerone Cooper's household; Cooper, Marshall, head, renter, monthly rent 20, married, age at first marriage 28, cannot read and write, night watchman, textile mill, Mary A, wife, f/w/54, age at first marriage 24, can read and write, born Texas, father and mother born Texas, Lee, son, m/w/22, born Texas, insurance agent, Jewel, daughter, f/w/20,born Texas, textile mill filler, Harper, son, m/w/17, born Texas, textile mill napper.

Detlev Baltzer, Pastor. Lee Daniel Cooper worked as a carpenter, then worked for a trucking company before going into business for himself between 1937 and 1947. The 1940 Federal Census enumerated him as head of household on on 25 April 1940 4405 Chapman, Houston, Harris, Texas, worked as a collector for an auto dealer. He was the owner-operator of L.D. Cooper Trucking and Contracting, Inc., 4711 Edison then 7725 Parkhurst Dr., Houston, TX. For many years, he hauled oil field equipment throughout the state of Texas. Later, he loaded steel and pipe from ships in the Houston Ship Channel onto his trucks. He had a steel and pipe storage yard.
When his daughter, Anita, was a young teenager, she went with him while he was off-loading some creosote poles. He had told her to wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt. She thought she knew best and didn't. That evening, Anita was so tired and sunburned. Next time, she took his advice! Between 1947 and 1983 at Houston, Texas. He was a member of the Sons of the Republic of Texas # 6140 James Pinckney Henderson Class, San Jacinto Chapter No. 1. He died on 31 May 1996 at Pasadena, Harris County, Texas, at age 88 and was buried at Brookside Cemetery, Houston, Texas. He enjoyed hunting and fishing. Over the years, Lee had hunting leases in Llano and Mason counties in Texas. The one he held the longest was leased from Billy Bode. He and Billy became good friends. Lee took his customers there in the winter primarily for deer hunting. Wives and children would go with the men quite often. Lee purchased two railroad cars and converted them to a kitchen and sleeping quarters. This was pure luxury compared to the years before of camping, sleeping under the stars or in tents and cooking over wood fires. We had lots of fun memories of all these times. Roughing it seems to bring the most memories. We camped often near a cold spring. Even in the winter times, we enjoyed that creek. One particular night, we arrived late and tired under pitch black skies. We put our sleeping bags on the ground and bedded down. Next morning, we discovered we were sleeping on tree roots sticking out of the ground. No wonder we were all moaning and groaning. One occasion, a bobcat was killed and hung over a fence. Later that evening, while the stew was cooking on the campfire, someone noticed the bobcat was gone. Evryone accused the 'cook' of putting it in the stew. We never knew for sure, but that stew was exceptionally good that night!
