No Issue*Robert and Mary (Waldron) Potterton had no children.1,2
Illness*7 March 1880Mary's husband's over-achieving brain became mentally ill over time. According to Joyce, Robert's mental decline began to show in 1871 when he was only forty-eight. That year, he was absent for illness for seven months from his post as District Inspector in Limerick. Then, from 1874 until 1876, when he became District Inspector in Armagh, he was absent altogether. Further evidence that he may have had problems was provided by a deed of 1877. It recorded that his brother, William, acting as a trustee of Robert and Mary’s marriage settlement, took over the lease of the farm at Annaduff. In April 1880, Robert was listed on a deed as "of Armagh", although by that time he was actually in a mental hospital in Dublin. His wife Mary, on 7 March 1880, had had him committed to Hampstead, Drumcondra, a private mental hospital in the Dublin suburb, while she took up residence nearby at Alpine Lodge, Glasnevin. Robert, aged fifty-seven at the time, remained at Hampstead until his death twenty-one years later.2

Cooper, on Bartlett Street, St. Joseph, Buchanan County, Missouri. Dolores was 13 years old, had completed her education through the 6th grade of elementary school, and had attended school within the census year. Everyone in the household was recorded as having lived in rural Gentry County, Missouri in 1935. Of note is that nine days after this census was taken, Dolores, would be enumerated a second time in the household of her maternal grandfather, Robert Price Chapman, in Wilson, Gentry County, Missouri who lived just five households away, on the next census page, from Dolores's uncle, Martin E. Walker, brother of Dolores's deceased father.5,6,7

Cooper; and second, the family of Dolores's uncle, Martin E. Walker, her deceased father's brother, was enumerated on the 1940 census just five households away from Dolores and her grandfather, on the previous census page.6,5,7

Social News*12 December 1940The newspaper reported on 12 December 1940, in their Social News for Alanthus and Community, that Dolores Walker and her sister Charlotte Cooper had come to the home of their grandfather, Price Chapman, on Thursday and that "to be sure, Granddad is happy to have them with him."9

Whitney Logan Cooper was 66 years of age.11,12,13,14
(Stepdaughter) Murder18 November 1950Coverage of her stepfather's murder appeared in newspapers in Stanberry and Albany, Gentry County, Missouri, and as far south as Springfield, Greene County, Missouri, with much of the reporting overlapping with the same information, especially in Gentry County. We've selected two articles that, in spite of some duplicate information, appear to provide as much of the complete story as we've found. Our transcriptions of those two articles follow:


Springfield Leader and Press, Springfield, Missouri, Monday, 20 November 1950, page 11


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.
