I am assuming you are looking for information other than that provided by census. Here is what I could find:

Could not find a marriage record, but Russell County lost its first marriage book, so those records are nearly impossible to find.

It would seem that Mary Elizabeth went by Elizabeth.

Nancy 6years and 9 months died 1 Jul 1853 of Flux
Silphia 7years died 20 Jun 1853 of Flux

I doesn't appear that William and Mary reported any of their children's births as their records do not appear in the transcriptions available on the Russell Co., VA genweb site.

A William McCoy did report on the death of his father, James McCoy age 72 how died 11 Jul 1857. His will is listed on Russell VA genweb site. Unfortunately, it does not list William's wife.

After the formation of Wise Co., VA the McCoy Records are there.
Wise Co., VA marriages
Caroline McCoy married Samuel Bise on 10/19/1865
Lidda Margaret McCoy married Jeremiah Lawson 4/28/1880
Robert C. McCoy married Matilda Ann Hall 11/27/1876

Possible marriage, but date is a bit off: Wm.McCoy md Mary L. Mead 10/23/1924

Mary McCoy m. Wm. Hayes 29 feb 1872 (unsure if she was a daughter although there is one listed in the 1870 census.

Lydia M. McCoy-Nov 16, 1861-W.W. McCoy and Elizabeth McCoy
Roda McCoy Dec 8, 1857
William McCoy Jul 10, 1860

Male McCoy d. 7/12/1860 1 day old

Hope this of some help.
