SILAS HUNLEY, son of SARAH ETTA "ETTA" SPARKS and GEORGE W. HUNLEY, was born about 1911 in Kentucky. He married ADA LOU COOPER, daughter of SAMANTHA JANE PACE and WILLIAM GREEN COOPER. She was born December 24, 1894 in Kentucky, and died in April of 1971 in Union City, Randolph County, Indiana. Ada Lou Cooper married (1) TOM LYKINS.

Notes: It has been reported that Ada Cooper first married Irvin Hampton, son of Clarinda Collins and Jesse Hampton, and that they had a child, Eunice Eloise Hampton, but nothing could be found to substantiate this. The marriage reportedly took place about 1912, but in the 1930 census Ada reports that she was first married at age 25, which was about 1919. There was an Eloise Hampton born February 25, 1911 in Johnson County to an Ada Blanton, and Ada Cooper went by Ada Blanton, at times. Her stepfather was James Anderson Blanton. The fact that Ada was first married to Tom Lykins - and divorced him - comes from Ada's granddaughter, Rosie Lykins Brooks, daughter of Lonnie Cooper Lykins.

Ada couldn't be found in any census before 1930, so connecting her to her parents comes from the 1930 census, Kentucky birth record transcripts, and her sister Mary's death certificate. Also from an article written by Todd Preston for the Magoffin County Historical Society that can be found under Silas Hunley's parents page. According to Kentucky birth record transcripts, Lonnie C. Lykins was born in Magoffin County to Ada Cooper. Ada and her son Cooper are found living with Mary and her husband, John Hale, in 1930. The fact that Lonnie C. Lykins is Lonnie Cooper Lykins, and that his mother was Ada, comes from Rosie Lykins Brooks. Mary died in 1947 from cardiac failure and on her death certificate her name is listed as Mary Elizabeth Hale and her parents as Will Green Cooper and Sementhy Pace.

According to Social Security death record transcripts, Ada Hunley was born December 24, 1894, and died in April of 1971. She received her Social Security card prior to 1951 in Indiana, and her last place of residence was in Union City, Randolph County, Indiana.
