Cooper grew up in Cooperstown, New York , the frontier town founded by his father. His daughter said that as a young man he had few opportunities to meet and talk with Native Americans: "occasionally some small party of the Oneidas , or other representatives of the Five Nations , had crossed his path in the valley of the Susquehanna River , or on the shores of Lake Ontario , where he served when a midshipman in the navy.
