Dr. Joseph Acey Cooper, a prominent cattleman of Kenna and a homesteader to the area, was buried in the Kenna Cemetery after his sudden death the previous Sunday. His family homesteaded in Kenna in 1906 after moving from Pickton, Texas. He eventually turned to ranching and became one of Roosevelt County’s most prosperous ranchers.
