McCoy - Murray connection
Posted by: Billie Culler (ID *****5467) Date: April 24, 2005 at 09:33:48

My great great grandfather was Robert Murray McCoy, born 1824 in Pennsylvania. He married in Columbia County,Pa. in 1845, and lived in Montour County, Pa. (was a carpenter/contractor) until his death in 1885. I haven't been able to find his parents but, given his middle name, researched and found a Margaret Murray, daughter of James Murray and Ann "Nancy" Winn, who married an "unknown McCoy" in the Northumberland/Columbia/Montour county area probably in 1800-1810 range. Also a William Murray from Liberty Township in Montour County had several real estate transactions with Robert McCoy in the 1850s...perhaps a relative? Would GREATLY appeciate any info about this connection and have much info about Robert's children to share!
