In 1873, Bennet Cooper (1797-1886) gave one-quarter of an acre of land for a family burying ground. His first wife, Lydia, was buried there along with several other family members. The cemetery is located on a ridge behind the Cooper Homeplace which was built by Hair Conrad, a Cherokee Indian, who lead the Trail of Tears. In 1930, Pearson Blythe Mayfield purchased the property. Mrs. David H. Neil obtained the land known as Blythewood Farms from her father and preserved Cooper Cemetery.
