Okay, could be. She's Mary A instead of Mary V...She's Thurgood instead of Willey...
I see mfinchee deleted her/his previous posts so maybe discovered the info was wrong...
I think we need more records to connect the various dots (in this case, a record of Mary V Willey marrying a Mr. Thurgord).
1940 US Census
Emmett, Gem, Idaho
Frank Buckland 63 born about 1877 in California
Jennie Buckland 55 born about 1885 in Pennsylvania
Eugene McCoy age 6, grandson born about 1934 in Idaho
Eugene's residence in 1935: rural Valley County, Idaho
Frank and Jennie's residence in 1935: Same House
Find a Grave memorial - does not confirm she is Jennie McCoy
Jennie L. Buckland
Birth Date: 1885
Age at Death: 65
Death Date: 1950
Burial Place: Riverside Cemetery, Emmett, Gem, Idaho
Archie A McCoy (1872 in CA -1933) and Billy Maurice McCoy (1923-1931) are buried same cemetery (Riverside).
okay, just found this online from klbeaty: "My father's family are Gem County natives. I am looking for any McCoys left in the area. My father, Eugene McCoy, was the son of Leslie James McCoy. His grandparents were Archie and Jennie Avery McCoy. Jennie remarried Frank Buckland."
So Jennie is actually Jennie Avery.
Which leads to the following onlinen family tree, which states that Jennie Avery and Archie McCoy married in Wyoming, LINK:http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/c/r/a/Iris-E-Craw...
That's way off the subject of the current search, I'm just trying to circle in on the right people.
In the original query klbeaty says Mary Vickers Willey "married my grandfather Leslie J McCoy in 1931. They had my father Eugene L McCoy in 1933...left him...in Boise."
klbeaty - you probably know more that might help us. What year was Leslie J McCoy born? Where was he born? Where was Mary Vickers Willey born? Where did Mary and Leslie marry? Where did Mary live in 1930? Where did Leslie live in 1930? Where was Eugene Willey born?
Some confusing stuff around this, could be why you asked for help sorting it all out. There are two Leslie McCoys born about 1908 in Idaho; they are living in two different places in 1930. There's a Leslie McCoy born in Washington living in Seattle, King, Washington in 1930 but he seems to be Leslie E McCoy in 1940.
I'm working on an old computer this am and it's not letting me look this stuff up (long story) so I'm really glad you're here ELLinSpain. Will try to fix problem but in any case will check back.
