I’ve posted Cooney’s Tomb in the Warpath, although (as usual) I’m not entirely satisfied with my researches into the subject. I’m on my way down to Silver City sometime in next couple of weeks, with a stopoff in Socorro, and I hope to locate one or another of Michael Cooney’s descendants who can fill me in on the family history. In particular I would like to discover what connection if any there was between Capt. Michael Cooney, 9th Cavalry, and Capt. Michael Cooney, brother to James Cooney. If not, it seems an extraordinary coincidence.
