Coopers of Logan County

Surnames: Cooper, Browning, Lawson
I am looking for information on my great great grandparents Marshall Valentine "Tine" Cooper (abt. 1830-?) and Mary Frances Browning (1852-1915). They were married in Russelville in 1873. The marriage certificate states that both were born in Logan County. At the time of the marriage, Marshall Valentine Cooper was 43. I have looked through the Logan County Census from the 1800's and have not found any record of him or his family. They had at least two children, Wilber Frances Cooper (1876-1961) and Marshall Wade Cooper (1886-1962). Marshall Valentine Cooper died and Mary Frances Browning remarried to R.L. Lawson in 1891. Mary Frances Browning is buried in the Marshall Cemetery in Logan County. I am not sure when Marshall Valentine Cooper died or where he is buried. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Marshall Valentine(tine) Cooper was my great grandfather.
I believe his brother was George W. Cooper born in 1828.
According to 1880 census George's father (unnamed was from Va (which included WVa at the time). I have not been able to determine who the father was (Jonas is a possibility but doesn't add up). Jonas's father was Valentine Cooper from Hardy County Va born in 1765. Can't quite make the connection......have you learned any more ??
