Searching for the parentage of Emma MCCOY born 4 Feb 1857 in Oregon. She married Monroe LEACH on 2 Oct 1878 in Linn County, Oregon and she died 1 Jan 1932 in Lane County, Oregon. In the same area that Emma was buried there is a family of John McCoy b 18 Jul 1814 in Tyler Co, West Virginia and his wife Sarah who died 10 Feb 1883 at age 68 (so she would have been 42 when Emma was born). Others suspect James Scott Dill as her father or Nelson McCoy who married Sarah on 4 Mar 1857. Does anyone have a source or documentation that identifies her parents?
I am also wanying to trace my family line of McCoy .What I know is that my father originated from Antigua... not sure where his fathr came from, there is some suggestion that he may be from Barbados. in the family there are Floyde, Richardson, George.
I am looking for an orva McCoy. His sister was mable lee McCoy in whom married a Jesse R Woods. from Blacwell Oklahoma, their father was Charles McCoy and mother was Elizebeth (Beth) Wallace. Orva was the last person to register on the indidan roll. My family has been searchin for this roll number for the 5th generation now. I am hoping that i can finally put this mystrey together.
What is ethnicity of your line? Did they have slaves?
The reason I ask is my line is African-American slaves. That is how we became McCoy's. We also know there is Indian in our lineage. I will update the Indian tribe once I get confirmed with Brother in law.
