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