Do you know James A McCoy's parents...I am a McCoy researcher...My McCoy's lived in Scotland, Arkansas..
Before Scotland, Arkansas, they lived in Cherokee Nation, this would have been about 1875..
My Grandfather's brother Kimsey McCoy did an interview in 1929 for the Cherokee Indian Pioneer Papers..He stated "he wasn't allowed to attend school in the Cherokee Nation so he went to live with family in Crawford Co Ark so he could go to school..."This would have been around 1875..By 1880 the family had moved to Scotland, Arkansas..
I'm always on the look out for McCoy families from Crawford Co ( hoping to make a connection)..
If you can post James McCoy's lineage I'd appreciate it..
