UPDATE:  Our previous look-up volunteer for the town of Hooper passed away this last fall.  Melvin wrote a history of Hooper, with 100 pages of text and pictures and 100 pages of data. The book is now being sold. (pages and pages of land ownership and school attendance records will not be included. It will be published later.). July Galpin (above) has a copy of Melvin's book and is graciously offering to do look-ups through the book.  Thank you Judi!  Email her at judigalpin2@aol.com
