COONEY, John T.

Word was received here yesterday of the death of Mr. John Cooney at Blaine, W. Va., the information, to the family being 'carried to them by Mayor George G. Young who received "an inquiry from an undertaker from that place". Mr. Cooney was a son of Mrs. Mary A. Cooney, 55 Thomas street. He was 45 years old and was a native of Cumberland and resided here until after her grew to manhood. Quite a number of years ago he moved to West Virginia and engaged in the coal mining business at Newburg. About a year ago he abandoned the coal business at Newburg and took other employment for a time and several months ago located at Blaine, W. Va., and went to work in the mines. Some weeks ago his health began failing and on last Thursday he consulted a physician at Blaine.  The physician found Mr Cooney affected with disease of the heart, prescribed for him and advised him to be very careful, rest and keep quiet.  On Saturday he felt very much better and resumed work in the mines Saturday morning.  On Sunday morning he became quite ill at his boarding house and in a few hours died.  The undertaker, while going through his clothing found a card from Mr Cooney's little girl, mailed in Cumberland a few days before.  This prompted the sending of a letter to the mayor of Cumberland which reached here yesterday morning and in a little while the family was notified.  Mrs(sic) Margaret Cooney, sister of the deceased and Mr Frank Stein left for Blaine at once and had the body brought here on the Western Maryland train last evening.  The remains were taken from the Stein undertaking parlors to the Cooney residence on Thomas Street this morning.  The funeral will take place tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock at St Patrick's church.  Mr Cooney leaves a widow who is an invalid in a hospital in Weston, W Va and three children: two of the children, Helen and John, ages 10 and 7 respectively are at a school in Wheeling.  The youngest child, Margaret, aged 5, makes her home with her grandmother here.  Mr Cooney is survived also by his mother and two sisters. Three brothers of the deceased, Edward J, Bernard and William, died here several years ago.

COPPER, John Sherwood

MURDER AND SUICIDE VERDICT
Coroner Renders Decision In Deaths of Sailor and Girl.
While no statements would be made by the parents of either Eva Schmidt, 19 years old, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Schmidt, of Eastern avenue, opposite the Oaklawn Cemetery, nor John Sherlock Copper of the same age, a sailor in the Navy, who apparently carried out a suicide pact, Monday evening, it is thought that the opposition to their contemplated marriage on the part of the girl's parents  was the motive for the tragedy.  After making an investigation, Coroner William T. Riley, of the Central District gave a verdict of death as a result of bullet wound inflicted by John Sherlock Copper, in the case of Miss Schmidt, while in the case of Copper a verdict of death by suicide was given.  Coroner Riley deemed an inquest unnecessary. The desire of the two sweethearts, as expressed in the note, "Bury  us together, Sherlock and Eva", found several hours after the double suicide, will not be granted.  The funeral of Copper will be held tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock from the residence of his parents and will be military in character.  Burial will be in Oaklawn Cemetery.  The funeral of the girl will be held Friday morning at 8:30 o'clock. High Mass will be celebrated at 9 o'clock in Sacred Heart Catholic Church.  She wll also be buried in Oaklawn.

Supposed Victim of Ptomaine Poisoning

COPPER, William J.

Unconscious on Platform ~ Mr. W. J. Copper, A Former Baltimorean, Dies In Philadelphia.
While waiting for a train at the Germantown Station, Philadelphia, Mr. William J. Copper, 47? years old, a brakeman on the Reading railroad and formerly a Baltimorean, fell unconscous on the platform. A train was rapidly rounding the curve leading to the station when Mr. Copper fell, and had it not been for a policeman he would have fallen on the tracks.  An ambulance was summoned and the unconscious man was hurried to the Germantown hospital, where he died a short time later. The coroner's physician, Dr. Wadsworth, performed an autopsy and found traces of poison in Mr. Copper's stomach.  The police believe that he had ptomaine poisoning.  Dr. Wadsworth held an inquest yesterday. For a number of years Mr. Copper worked for the Maryland Steel Company, at Sparrow's Point.  About seven years ago he went to Philadelphia and got a position with the Reading.  His wife and daughter, Miss Florence E. Copper, went with him and they made their home in Germantown.  About a year ago a misunderstanding took place between Mr. and Mrs. Copper, and with her daughter, she came to Baltimore.  She and her daughter have been boarding on Broadway, near Preston street. Before his death Mr. Copper asked that his wife be summoned.  The authorities at the hospital telephoned news of his death to his wife Sunday, but the details were not told her.  The body will be brought to Baltimore. Mr. Copper was the son of Mr. Cyrus Copper, superintendent of Mount Carmel Cemetery.  Besides his widow and daughter, who is 18 years old, he is survived by three brothers - Messrs John, George and Ezra Copper - and three sisters - Mrs. Jacob Bardy, Mrs. J.B. Miller and Mrs. J.P. HiltZ.  The funeral services will be held in this city, probably at the home of Mrs. Hiltz.
