Annie Lulu Bowman, mother of Matilda Pearl Cooper, is in the PEI Baptismal Index. In the 1911 census, Annie Cooper said her date of birth was December 1888. This fits with her being the daughter of John and Jane Bowman, and this was confirmed by her descendants.
In the 1921 census, the family was in Southport Lot 48 where William was farming. Children were Lorne (13), Pearl (10), Lena (8), Wesley (6), Eleanor? (3) and Emma (1). Perhaps Eleanor was Elmer?
William Cooper, Southport Lot 48, is in the Cummins Atlas (1928) with his wife Annie and children Lorne, Pearl, Lena, Wesley, Elmer, Emma, Arthur, and Dorothy.
He was a Militia Sargent, Fur Rancher, and gardener.
There are graves for Mrs. and Mrs. William Cooper in the Lot 48 cemetery. Mrs. Cooper's date of death was 1973 at age 85, which fits with Annie Lulu.

Annie was raised by her aunt Elizabeth, who married Peter Green:
