    A question other commentors on this thread: What is the distinction between Dover vs Cooperville? My relatives were from Cooperville and were white. Is Dover a largely Black community? I always wondered because as a kid when i spent summers at my grandmother’s people would refer to something as being in the direction of Dover, but I never saw Dover. We knew Mr. Cane who ploughed fields in Cooperville, but I was five and never asked where he lived. Thanks, if you know. In any case, health and happiness to you.

    Yes this was my great grandads store. A lot of people didn’t know that he helped a lot of people who couldn’t afford to pay he would basically give it to them
