(Brother) Will3 July 1814Martin's brother, Robert Furlong, was in a low state of health, but of perfect mind and memory, when he left a will dated 3 July 1814 in Smith County, Tennessee. His will first gave and bequeathed his soul unto God, whom he described as the author of his existence and his Redeemer, and his body to the dust from whence it was taken, wishing his Executors, named later in the will, to have him buried as they thought proper. Secondly, he desired his Carpenters tools and his horses to be sold as his Executors thought proper and that they then discharge all the just debts he may have left unsettled.

Thirdly, he desired the balance of his property, after the payment of his debts, to be equally divided between his brothers, Hubbard Furlong, John Furlong, James Furlong, Samuel Furlong, Martin Furlong and Hudson Furlong, and sisters, Susanna Furlong, Meredith Furlong and Anky Wheeler, all of whom were named in his will, and also desired that Amy Emmerson, Henry Emmerson, Eliza Emmerson, Mahala Emmerson and Jesse Emmerson, the five children and heirs of his deceased sister, Elizabeth Emmerson, each one to receive an equal part of their mother's portion of his estate.

His will appointed his brothers, Martin and Samuel Furlong, his Executors, and Robert signed and sealed his will with his X mark in the presence of witnesses, John McGee and Thomas Douglas.1

Samuel Furlong1

b. 1805
Father-Probable*Hubbard Furlong2,3,4,5 b. 13 Jun 1768
Mother-Probable*Martha Armstrong4,3,2,5
Birth*1805Samuel Furlong was born about 1805 in Tennessee.1
Marriage Bond*18 April 1826A marriage bond was issued to Samuel Furlong and Reuben Kinslow in Barren County, Kentucky, on 18 April 1826, obligating them to the sum of £50 on the condition of the intended marriage shortly to be solemnized between Samuel Furlong and Betsy Wheeler.6
Marriage18 April 1826The same day their license was issued, he married second, as her second husband, Betsy Wheeler, daughter of Henry Emmerson Sr., on 18 April 1826 in Barren County, Kentucky.7
Census US 1850*20 August 1850Samuel and Elizabeth Furlong were enumerated on the 1850 census taken on 20 August 1850 in Barren County, Kentucky. Samuel was 45 years of age and a farmer, and Elizabeth was 67 years of age. Neither was able to read or write. Enumerated in the next previous household, on the same census page, was the family of Elizabeth's daughter and son-in-law, Deliah and John Matthews, and on the next census page, two households away from Elizabeth and Samuel, was the family of Elizabeth's brother-in-law, Micajah Wheeler, and his wife, Hannah (Furlong) Wheeler.

We find ourselves confused, and wonder about Samuel, who was 22 years younger than Elizabeth. Was he the same Samuel Furlong she married in 1826? Was he a brother of Elizabeth's sister-in law, Hannah Furlong Wheeler, who was enumerated two households away? If so, Samuel was the son of Martha and Hubbard Furlong.

Please... If anyone reading this can lead us to the answers regarding Samuel's identity, please let us know...1
(Husband) Death15 February 1853Samuel became a widower when Elizabeth (Emerson) Wheeler Furlong died on 15 February 1853 at about age 70.8

Susannah Furner1,2

d. after 11 January 1620/21
Father*______ Furner2
Mother*Isabel __?__2
Birth*Susannah Furner was born in England.2
Marriagebefore 1587She married James Chilton, son of Lyonell Chylton, before 1587.2,1
(Adult Female) Mayflower Passenger9 November 1620Susanna (Furner) Chilton was probably in her early 60s when she sailed with her husband James and daughter Mary onboard the Mayflower from Plymouth, England to Plymouth Colony in what is now Massachusetts. Her daughter Mary has traditionally been given the honor of being the first female to step ashore at Plymouth Rock, however no historical documentation for this tradition has ever been found. When the Mayflower departed Plymouth, England on 6 Sep 1620, she was carrying 102 passengers, including three pregnant women. During the voyage one baby, Oceanus Hopkins, was born making a total of 103 passengers. Three days before land was sighted, passenger William Button died, so when the Mayflower arrived there were again 102 passengers. A full list of the passengers may be accessed by clicking on the PDF icon at the end of this section and those included in this project so far include adult males John Alden, Francis Cooke and James Chilton, adult females Susanna (Furner) Chilton, young male John Cooke, and young females Priscilla Mullins and Mary Chilton.

During the weeks ahead, while everyone still "lived" on the ship, the men explored the area looking for a place to build their settlement. Another baby, Peregrine (meaning "wanderer") White, son of William and Susannah, was born in America onboard the Mayflower on 20 Nov, the first English child born to the Pilgrims in the New World. The White's servant, Edward Thompson, died on 4 Dec, followed shortly by 7 year old Jasper More, one of the four illegitimate children placed on the Mayflower in the care of the William Brewster family by their mother's humiliated husband. Two of the other More children died as well. And, tragically, Dorothy May Bradford, William Bradford's wife, slipped over the side of the anchored Mayflower and drowned. In early December the group decided to move the ship and look somewhere else for a settlement location. The ship and its passengers left Provincetown Harbor on 15 Dec. Two days later on 17 Dec, the Mayflower dropped anchor at Plymouth Harbor and on 21 Dec the first landing party arrived at the site of what would become the settlement of Plymouth. The weather, however, was so terrible they could not begin work on shore for several days. In the meantime, the Mayflower had become a hospital ship, the passengers suffering from colds, coughs, fevers and scurvy. James Chilton had died even before the Mayflower arrived in Plymouth Harbor. Richard Britteridge passed away the day the ship arrived, and two days later Solomon Prower, the stepson of Christopher Martin, the ship's designated "governor", died. The following day Mary Allerton gave birth to a stillborn son.

By the end of January 1621, enough of the settlement had been built to begin unloading provisions from the Mayflower, however the emigrants' ordeal was far from over. With two and sometimes three people dying a day during February and March, almost everyone had lost a loved one. Christopher Martin died in early January, his wife Mary soon after. The Rigsdale, Tinker and Turner families were completely wiped out, followed by Susannah Chilton whose husband James had died while the ship was at Provincetown Harbor. The Chilton's 13 year old daughter Mary had become an orphan. Also orphaned that first winter were 17 year old Joseph Rogers, 12 year old Samuel Fuller, 18 year old John Crackston, 17 year old Priscilla Mullins and 13 year old Elizabeth Tilley, who also lost her aunt and uncle, Edward and Ann Tilley. By mid-March, William Bradford, Myles Standish, Francis Eaton and Isaac Allerton, who had three children between the ages of eight and four, had all become widowers. When William White died, his widow Susannah was left with their newborn son Peregrine and 5 year old Resolved. Susannah was the plantation's only surviving widow. By that first spring, 52 of the 102 who had originally arrived at Provincetown were dead. Half, however, survived. And, miraculously, the families of William Brewster, Francis Cooke, Stephen Hopkins and John Billington were completely untouched by all the disease. The remaining "Pilgrims" worked, prayed and fought together and their settlement of Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth Colony had begun.3,4,5
(Mother) OrphanWhen Susanna and James Chilton both died during their first winter in America, their 13-year-old daughter Mary Chilton was left orphaned in her new world.1,2
Death*after 11 January 1620/21She died shortly after 11 January 1620/21 in Plymouth, Plymouth Colony.2

Woman Faces Murder Charge
____________

Shoots Her Husband Following Argument


OSCEOLA. November 20 (Special) -- A 46-year old farm wife is being held in St. Clair County jail here today, accused of the gun slaying of her 58-year-old husband during a Saturday night argument in their home seven miles west of Collins.

Prosecuting attorney E. W. Mills said a second degree murder charge had been filed against Mrs. Viola Irene Cooper in connection with the fatal shooting of her husband, Whitney Logan Cooper.

The charge was drawn against Mrs. Cooper, Mills said, after the woman signed a statement admitting the slaying.

An inquest has been scheduled for 2:00 p.m. tomorrow in the courthouse. Mills said Mrs. Cooper won’t be arraigned until after the inquest.
____________


According to Sheriff Logan Perry, the shooting occurred about 11:15 p.m. Saturday after the Coopers and Mr. and Mrs. James Buck, (James A. Buck and Dolores J. (Walker) Buck), son-in-law and daughter of Mrs. Cooper, returned to their 80-acre hill farm after a drinking party in Humansville and nearby Collins.

Perry said the Coopers and Bucks drove to Humansville early Saturday evening and spent some time in a tavern there. They also stopped in Collins for more drinks, Mrs. Cooper told the sheriff.

Mrs. Cooper, authorities added, said her husband became jealous over a man she was talking to at one of the taverns.
____________


And after they returned to their farm home, Cooper allegedly threatened to kill his wife. Mrs. Cooper then related she ran into a bedroom to get her husband’s .38 caliber revolver. When Cooper, the woman said “came at her” threateningly she pulled the trigger. The bullet went through the left side of his chest and out his back. Cooper died instantly.

The Bucks, who had lived with the Coopers for the past six weeks, confirmed Mrs. Cooper’s account of the slaying.

Surviving Cooper, who had lived near Collins “for a couple of years”, Perry said, are a daughter, Mrs. Charlotte Lester, of Kansas City, and a sister.

Funeral arrangements are under direction of Goodrich of Osceola.

Whit Cooper Was Buried Here Last Friday Afternoon
____________

Remains Brought to Albany for Interment Following Inquest
____________


Funeral services for Whitney Logan Cooper, a former citizen of this community, were held here last Friday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock from the Brooks Funeral Home. The service was conducted by the Rev. A. Lee Hughes, pastor of the Albany Methodist Church, and interment was in the Grandview cemetery.

The remains reached Albany last Thursday morning from Collins, Missouri, where Mr. Cooper had lived. The body was held there pending an inquest held on Tuesday of last week.

Mr. Cooper was shot in the chest at 11:15 o’clock on Saturday night, November 18. The shooting took place in his home and he was killed instantly. His wife, Mrs. Viola Irene Cooper, who formerly lived near Stanberry, gave herself up to St. Clair County authorities.

Members of the family knew little of the murder. Some of the relatives who were there for the funeral knew that Mrs. Cooper had surrendered but none of them knew the circumstances leading up to the fatal shooting. It was said that Mrs. Cooper refused to testify at the inquest.

Mr. Cooper will be remembered by many persons here. He had lived in this vicinity over a period of several years. He was associated with his brother, Walter V. Cooper, Charles E. Buck and Lewis Deloyd Buck, who now lives in Denver, Colorado.

The two brothers had worked over a period of several years at the time the Cousins Lumber Company was in operation here. Whit Cooper had charge of the construction of the present Gentry County jail here and, as far as his brother knew, it was about his last construction work in this vicinity.

The following obituary was read at the funeral here last Friday:

Whitney Logan Cooper, the son of the late Coleman and Josephine Cooper, was born on December 12, 1883 in Appleton City, Missouri, and departed this life at his home near Collins, Missouri, on November 18, 1950. He was past 65 years of age.

He lived in and near Albany the early part of his life, leaving here about 25 years ago. Most of that time since he has lived in the southern part of Missouri.

He was converted when a young man at a revival at the old Gentryville church and was baptised, taking membership in the Baptist Church.

He is survived by his widow, by one daughter born to that marriage, by one brother, Walter V. Cooper, Charles E. Buck and Lewis Deloyd Buck of Denver, Colorado, and by two sisters, Ida, Merle, Gertrude, Thelma, Docia, Luella and Ethyl, wives of Leslie R. Griffith, Walter E. Smith, John Pleasant Warden, Thomas Arthur Johnson and Fred C. Cox, respectively, of Englewood, Colorado, and Maryville. There are other relatives and friends left to morn his tragic death.
