We know that James McCoy b.1805 was in Floyd Co., Kentucky in 1830, he was in Henry Co.,Iowa between 1836 and 1839. We know he was in Missouri as late as October, 1848 when Miles was born and in Texas in the winter of 1848. Does he show up on any census in 1840? Was he in Missouri as early as that? Jennifer Haston claims that her Nancy was born to James and Nancy in Missouri in 1840. Everyone seems to dismiss that idea but I'm not sure why. Where was the family between 1840 and 1848. Did I miss something? I probably did but would you all refresh my memory?
