About 1868, Nathaniel sold his interest to his brother, and the firm was "J. S. Cooley" until 1879, when it was changed to J. S. Cooley & Son; and in 1883, A. Eugene COOLEY being added to the firm, it was changed to J. S. Cooley Son & Co., and on the death of the senior member, December 20, 1889, the firm was made A. S. & A. E.
