      "History of First Settlers of Cow Run" by W.M. King

      James Blackburn and wife. Their children: Angley, John and one daughter.

      Angley married, lived in Mason County. John died young. The daughter, so I am told, married a man by the name of Thornton. She died, left a small child. The grandparents took the child and kept her until she was a young woman and married a man, John Furgate. The girls name was Rosa Thornton Furgate. They had two boys and five girls. Their boys were both killed. One was leading a cow with a rope. He tied the rope around his body and the cow ran with him down a rough hill, dragging him. When someone saw him and went to him he was dead. The other boy went after their cows one evening and was killed by lightning.

      After Mr Blackburn died his wife went to live with the granddaughter, Mrs Frugate. After the old lady, Mrs. Blackburn got old and feeble they took her to her son Angley's in Mason County. His wife didn't want her in their home. Her husband put his hand on her shoulder and said "She is my mother and she is going in our home. " He took her in and took care of her until she died, like any good son would.
