Hi Curt,

Yes, Joseph is believed to have been a son of John. But Elizabeth Firmin
married William Cooley of Maryland--a completely different line. The
marriage is noted in a Fayette county PA history and, we've recently
learned, the deaths of both William and Elizabeth are noted in the family
bible of their son Jonathan. One of Jonathan's daughters was named
Elizabeth Firmin Cooley. Several descendants in that family were named
Firmin (various spellings).

Lura Coolley Hamil used the above Fayette county history as her source for
the marriage but she was clearly wrong by stating John married Elizabeth.
I can only suggest that she got the subject of the biographical article,
another John Cooley, somehow mixed up with his grandparents, William and
Elizabeth Firmin Cooley or, perhaps, her notes were unclear and her
cousins twenty years later, who published A Story of Pioneering, mixed
them up. In any case, there appears to be no evidence that an Elizabeth
Firmin married a John Cooley.

Here's a link to the family bible entries that Frank Cooley forwarded to
me. He understands that there may have been additional entries and is
trying to obtain them:
