Surnames: Garrett, Woods, JamesI have just started researching my family history, and haven't gotten very far. I don't know if it might be the same line or not. I know that my GGrandfather, Robert John GARRETT, was in Kansas for quite some time, but I'm not sure of the time. I haven't been able to find him anywhere. I know that he died in Noble County, Oklahoma, about 1964. I would really appreciate anything that you think might help.
McCOYs from Holton Twp., Jackson Co. 1860/after
Posted by Michael Steffen <email@example.com> on Sun, 06 Dec 1998
Surnames: McCoyI am looking for more info. on McCOY names below in marriage indexes and WPA Cemetery Records.
1860/1870 Census Holton Twp., Jackson Co.
Nathan C. McCoy (alone as 60 yrs old in 1870)
Mary or Nancy (?) McCoy (51 yrs old in 1860) d. between 1860-1870 in Jackson Co.?
1)Horatio "Nelson" McCoy b. 1831 m. Phebe Lundy (b. 1832)
1851 in IA Moved to KS from Mahaska Co., IA between
1859-1860. Nelson and family was living in Vermillion
Twp., Marshall Co., KS in 1870 after living in Jackson Co.
Their children were listed in order: Emily E./Emma, Mary
J.(twin?), Martha A.(twin?), Caroline or Elisabeth,
Nathan, Gilbert, Keyrah, Alice (b. 1864), and Lydia M.
McCoy (b. 1870).
2)Charles G. McCoy b. abt 1834 m. Sophia ?
3)Nathan McCoy b. abt 1838
4)Elizabeth E. McCoy b. abt 1841
5)Mary Caroline McCoy b. abt 1844
6)Lydia M. McCoy b. abt 1847
7)Nathan Wesley McCoy b. abt 1851
Rebecca (Lundy) Lawrance, a sister to Phebe (Lundy) McCoy mentioned above, was orginally thought to be a natural mother to my ancestor, Minnie Adell Lawrence/Lawrance and have been told that she was an aunt who raised Minnie. Minnie is in 1870 Census Iowa as 2 yrs old under Rebecca's husband's name. With that info., it was then originally thought that Phebe (Lundy) McCoy might have been a natural mother to Minnie until I just found out the names of most or all Phebe's children yesterday that makes it less likely. With this new discovery, it's a possibility that Rebecca and Phebe's another sister might have been a natural mother to Minnie. The problem is that there were 13 siblings with 5 females and one gender unknown (probably died in infancy). All these females were all covered for and less likely to be a mother to Minnie, except for a remaining one that is still a mystery. I hope I don't ran out of females after the remaining one (grin).
The purpose of this posting is that I just wanted to get enough information on McCoys from the records as indicated above at Jackson Co., KS area to cover all the bases in my research and eliminate any errors from making any hypothesis.
Thank you very much and your help will be greatly appreciated.
