Residence*1880 In 1880, George and Flora (Montgomery) Courtney lived in Peoria, Peoria County, Illinois,1,8
Occupation* and George worked as a railroad engineer.1,8
Death*20 October 1891He died in a terrible train accident on 20 October 1891 in Monmouth, Warren County, Illinois, at age 51. The Galesburg Republican-Register, the following day, printed the story of the tragedy which took three additional lives and seriously injured 18 others. The train was running at a high rate of speed, and the facts showed that the switch was partially open on the side-track, causing most of the cars on the train to derail. Riding in the engine were Engineer A.A. Emery, Fireman Nels Anderson and George Courtney, the traveling engineer, who went on the trip to see how the new Locomotive worked. Anderson was blown from the cab by the steam, and survived. Courtney and Emery had no chance to escape, and their bodies were found close to the locomotive. A young man named Frank S. Johnson of Avon, who was standing on the steps of the smoking-car, attempted to jump, but was thrown under the wheels and killed. The fourth death was a young mother named Mrs. George Allen. She had been sitting next to the window in the first chair-car with her baby who survived. The scene after the wreck was said to have been heart-rending and panicky. Great surprise was expressed that the list of fatalities was not larger1,8
Burial* and was buried in Hope Cemetery, Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois.1

John Cowen1

(Neighbor) Land Transfer22 August 1734John Cowen was described as a neighbor in Stoughton when Nicholas Bolton, labourer, of Bridgewater in the County of Plymouth in New England, signed a deed agreement on 22 August 1734 to sell land in Dorchester to David Leach, yeoman, of Kingston, Plymouth County for the sum of twenty pounds current money of New England. The deed identified the land as his ninth part of all the lands that his father died seized of in the township of Dorchester in the County of Suffolk, both divided and undivided -- except one lot of land containing thirty-three acres lying in Stoughton, in the County of Suffolk, beside the lot of John Cowen. Nicholas signed his mark, sealed and delivered the document in the presence of Daniel Johnson and Mary Perkins, and Isaac Johnson, a Justice of the Peace, verified that Nicholas had personally appeared before him and acknowledged the instrument to be his act and deed. The document was recorded in Suffolk County, on 23 May 1734 by Samuel Gerrish, Registrar.

Although the Dorchester land sold and the Stoughton land retained in the deed were not described, both pieces were very likely part of the land laid out previously to the right of Nicholas' grandfather, Nicholas Boulton the Immigrant, in the Twenty-Five Divisions of Land late in the township of Dorchester and now in the township of Stoughton. When their grandfather died in 1683, their father, John Bolton, inherited the land, and when he died in December of 1721, the remaining Dorchester/Stoughton land was passed on to Nicholas and his siblings, each receiving a one-ninth part.1

Israel Cowing1

Marriage*23 January 1723/24He married Lydia Balch on 23 January 1723/24 in Scituate, Plymouth County, Massachusetts Bay Province (New England).2,3
Research Notes*The information presented in the Hooper Genealogy may not be correct. What we have learned so far is that a daughter named Sarah Cowing was born in Scituate to a father named Israel Cowing on 21 Dec 1717 and that a Sarah Cowing, daughter of an Israel Cowing, died in Scituate on 5 Jan 1718. No other Sarahs were found in the Scituate records and, of course, the Sarah who died may not have been the same Sarah who was born the month before. Six years after the death of the daughter Sarah, Israel Cowing and Lydia Balch were married in Scituate in 1723/4. John Hooper did, in fact, marry a Sarah in Bridgewater in 1746. She was identified as Sarah Cowing in Mitchell's Bridgewater History in both the Hooper and Cowing sections and as Sarah Carver in the Bridgewater vital records under Hooper. Just to confuse things further, their marriage was not included in the Bridgewater vital records book under either Cowing or Carver.1,4,5,3,6,7
