My name is Donald Rush and I'm in the process of gathering information in regards to the Smith and McKoy African American families. As for the McKoy's, I've identified our great great grandfather as named Onslow McKoy and our great great grandmother was Flora Jane Johnson McKoy. Their children are as follows (Johnnie, William, James, George Washington, Thaddeus, Harrison, Gaydie, Ollee, King Sr., and Vannie McKoy.) They originated from the Colly, Bladen County Area of NC. As is pertains to the Smith's, our great great grandmother was named Elvia (Elvy) Jane Jackson Smith and our great great grandfather was named Amos Smith Jr. Their children were Willie Bell, Murry, Orilla, Estella, Malesten, Penella, Sheppard, and Jerome. They too originated in Colly/Bladen, NC. #Note: Some of the spellings may be incorrect due to census data. All of these children were born in the mid 1800's or very early 1900's.
