McCoy Cemetery

This cemetery was read by Kris Manley and Sharon Patmore in 1985.

John Ozzy Williams in 2010 has taken all the pictures that you see and the additional data is also from him.
My thanks to him for his work.

At that time the cemetery was neat and well taken care of.

Children: All born in IN
James, age 24

1880 census finds him in Luce Twp with his son as HOH # 67. His wife is gone and his son Uriah JR is present with his family and his son Alfred is also present.

I found several obituaries on some of the children and will add them to the web site under surnames when I can
