Ellen McCoy - dau. of John McCoy and Ellen Russell

In Reply to: Seek parents of Ellen McCoy born in Montreal 15 Feb 1832 by Tim Cooper of 1963

I had success in the Cook County - Illinois - Forum.
I was given good advice to try to find Ellen's death record. She was mis-indexed as Ellen E. Darey instead of Ellen E. Davy, but I found her and got the death record the next day, which showed that her parents were John McCoy and Ellen Russell. The death record states that they were both born in Canada, but I am more apt to believe the 1900 census information about them both being born in Ireland, since it was Ellen who supplied the information.
Does anybody know anything about this couple??? Probably born between 1796 and 1816 (to have been between 18 and 38 when Ellen was born. Just a guesstimate, but a place to start)
