Fraternal Order*9 April 1892 0n 9 April 1892 , in honor of their deceased member and brother, James Garland, The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) of Birdseye Lodge #604 in Birdseye, Dubois County, Indiana, prepared an official "Resolution of Respect" which was published in at least two Indiana newspapers. Our transcription follows:

Whereas, In view of the loss we have sustained as a Lodge by the untimely death of a friend and brother, James Garland, and by the still greater loss sustained by those nearest and dearest to him; therefore be it
Resolved, That it is but a just tribute of respect to the dead brother that in regretting his removal from our association, we mourn for one who is truly worthy of our respect.
Resolved, That we truly sympathize with the family of the deceased in the dispensation with which an all-wise Creator has seen proper to afflict them, and commend them to rely on him who orders all things for the best for consolation.
Resolved, That this testimonial of our sorrow and sympathy be forwarded to the family of our departed brother and friend, and that our hall be draped in mourning for the next thirty days.
Resolved, That these resolutions be entered on the minutes of our order, and that a copy of them be sent to the Huntingburg Argus and Jasper Courier for publication.

The document was signed by J. J. Cunningham, J. W. Grant and J. W. Jacobs, who were identified as the Committee.4
MurderStories regarding his murder appeared in several newspapers throughout the state of Indiana and one researcher reported finding more than 30 articles about it, counting the original publication of a story and the copies by other newspapers. Although not the first newspaper to publish the information, the front page of The Jasper Weekly Courier on Friday, 1 April 1892 shouted news of the killing with cascading headlines over the description of the event. Our transcriptions of that early article, and four later mentions of additional parts to the story, follow:

A FAMILY FEUD
James Garland Murdered in Crawford County
by His Brother-in-Law, William S. Ferguson


James Thomas Garland, of Crawford County, and William S. Ferguson, of Orange County, brothers-in-law, met on the forenoon of the 25th at the residence of their father-in-law, John R. Pace, three miles south of Birdseye in Crawford County. The meeting appears to have been accidental, and occurred at the gate in front of Pace’s residence. As soon as they met Ferguson demanded of Garland the immediate payment of an old debt claimed to be owing him by Garland. The reply by Garland to this demand was that he was willing to pay anything he honestly owed, but not until a settlement of disputed items had been made.

The declaration of Garland greatly exasperated Ferguson and he immediately made an attack on Garland, striking him in the neck with his fist and knocking him senseless to the ground. Ferguson continued the attack by jumping upon Garland with his knees, frequently repeating this and finally choking Garland, the latter dying while Ferguson had him by the throat.

Finding that Garland was dead, Ferguson lifted the body and carried it into the residence of his father-in-law. He then went out to where his horse was hitched, mounted him and galloped away. The murder, from all the information so far obtainable, seems to have been utterly unprovoked and cold blooded. Both have families. (New Albany Ledger)

Searching for a Murderer


English, Indiana, 30 March. The Garland brothers, who are the brothers of the man killed on 24th (sic) instant near Birdseye by William S. Ferguson of Dubois County, are at the head of a posse of men armed with Winchesters, and scouring that county in search of Ferguson. If caught, Ferguson will be lynched. Rumor has it that Garland and Ferguson had made threats and counter threats to whip each other, but this is hardly supposable on the part of Garland who was just recovering from an attack of measles.

A MURDERER CAPTURED

William S. Ferguson Taken to Dubois for Trial


Princeton, Indiana. Special: William S. Ferguson was captured in this city today. About two months ago he and his brother-in-law, James Thomas Garland, engaged in a quarrel at Birdseye, sixty-five miles east of this city, over an account. It is claimed that Ferguson owed Garland. A scuffle took place and Ferguson grabbed Garland by the whiskers with one hand and with the other pounded him to death. He afterward carried the victim to his yard, washed him and laid him out. He made his escape. It is claimed he has been in hiding in southern Indiana all the time. He is a tough-looking character and is said to be a terror to the locality in which he lived. The good people will no doubt feel relieved over his capture. Judge Lynch may take him in charge when he reaches his destination. He pleaded with the officers not to take him to his home – Dubois County – but he was nevertheless taken to that county this evening. A big reward was offered for his arrest.

A Jasper special says: William S. Ferguson, who a few weeks ago murdered James Thomas Garland, his brother-in-law, who asked him to pay a bill he owed him, was captured this morning near Princeton, Indiana by Sheriff Key and his deputy, James F. McAfee. He was placed in jail here this evening to await trial at the next term of the circuit court, which convenes next Monday.

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.
