The Cooper Family is one of the founding families of Riverdale.
The Coopers are also related to the Blossom Family, as generations ago, the family split in two after one Blossom brother murdered the other, due to a disagreement in splitting the profits. After they severed all ties to the Blossom Family and changed their surname names to Cooper, for generations the two families have kept its history hidden and absolutely despised each other.
The original family known as the Blossom's arrived in Riverdale nearly a hundred years ago, where they founded their lucrative maple syrup business. However, there was in-fighting in the company that resulted in one Blossom murdering his own brother. Afterward, the family split in two, and one-half severed all ties to the other and took a new name - Cooper.
Hal and Alice's middle daughter, Polly Cooper, fell in love with Jason Blossom, as the two were unaware they were third cousins. Their relationship was frowned upon by their respective families, and each did everything they could to break the two up. However, Polly revealed to Jason and her family that she was pregnant. Hal originally wanted Polly to have an abortion, as he knew the babies were the result of an incestuous relationship. Polly refused, which resulted in Hal and Alice sending Polly to the Sisters of Quiet Mercy, where Polly would put the babies up for adoption after the birth. Polly's pregnancy was originally kept a secret from the Blossoms and the world until recently when it was revealed by the Cooper family in an effort to convince the town that Polly didn't kill Jason. With the family unaware that they were related to the Blossom Family, Hal eventually had to reveal to his family with their past history between both families shared.
