CHARLES DOBIE : LOCAL HISTORY
McCOY FAMILY

This page of information and a page of McCoy family photographs was submitted for posting on this website by Patricia, who says:

" I'd like to introduce myself, Patricia, as the 3rd great-granddaughter of Alexander McCoy and Mary Robinson.

I've been researching my McCoy family continously for the last year after losing my father Barry. Knowing very little about the family other than that my great-grandfather came from the Lanark County of Ontario and had married Elizabeth Milne. Thankfully to the success of the censuses available and obtaining a subscription to find and view BMD of Ontario, I have been able to bring my family research to life. I have 900+ names regarding the McCoy line, their marriages and descendants.

My main focus now is Alexander "Allan" McCoy and Mary Robinson. Both are from Ireland according to records I've found. Alex, born 1791, immigrated some time between then and his marriage to Mary in 1833. I have yet to find any ship, border crossings, land records, etc., to go further. I would like to know if he came alone or with siblings, his parents and where he left from. There are many McCoys in Ontario throughout these years I cannot connect to my family -- I'd like to think Alex came with one brother and thus here are the other names. I cannot seem to find where and when his death took place, I'll assume Ontario.

As for Mary, all the same which applies to Alex. Looking at census records pre-1833 that are available to me I have found several Robinsons in the area of Bastard, Leeds, unfortunately they only list head of households. On the marriage record for Mary it states "Maria". Alex and Mary's children were listed in the 1851 census. I have had little success in obtaining and finding more about Robinson McCoy. Known is a wife Hannah or Anna, and through finding two marriage documents, he has two known children, George and Margaret. Margaret married James Albert Cook. I can find no known death for Robinson or any other children. Thomas I believe immigrated to Pennsylvania, wife Mary and two children Sarah and James. Have census records to prove. Nothing more. Elizabeth married John Peters in Lanark, Ont. Four children found through the 1881 census, and nothing more.

Another elusive son of Alex and Mary, George W. McCoy, has been found in New York State. I have established contact with George's great grandson, Thomas, and now we work together on the family history. Thomas has provided many of these pictures of the unknown McCoys as he found them in an old album belonging to George W. A couple of the photos obviously belonging to our Canada McCoys. A few I obtained through long-lost family members who I now have contact with and keep up-to-date with research.

Anyone knowing of any of the family names or who the pictures are of,
Patricia.
