David McCoy,signer of Character Certificates, Texas

A David McCoy signed Character Certificates for entry into Texas in 1831 for William Herring, John Grissett and Henry Midkiff.

My understanding is that character certificates had to be signed by someone who was an authority in the person's previous location. I know the Midkiffs travelled from TN to AR to TX.
