Detailed biographical sketch in Historical and Biographical Record of Monterey and San Benito Counties and History of the State of California (J. M. Guinn, 1910, Los Angeles: Historic Record Co., 2:452, 455. Among other information, we note the following: "WILLIAM WATSON McCOY. The life which this sketch depicts began in Juniata county, Pa., February 22, 1818, and closed in the Corral de Tierra, November 26, 1887. Between the two dates was encompassed a record of usefulnees and industry, whose early manhood found fruitful activities in the work of a teacher and in surveying. After settling in Ohio Mr. McCoy laid out the village of Crestline and held the office of county surveyor. While living in Ohio he was united in marriage, February 11, 1847, with Miss Catherine Johnson, who was born in Washington county, Pa., February 18, 1823. Four children were born of their union, but one was removed in infancy by death. The three surviving members of the family are as follows: George Watson, an employe of the Southern Pacific Railroad Company and a resident of Sacramento; William Johnson, a well-known instructor in music residing in Oakland, and John Wesley, born February 13, 1856, and now living in Corral de Tierra." "Settling in Indiana during the year 1861, William Watson McCoy embarked in the hotel business in Indianapolis and continued in that city until a fire destroyed his hotel. As a quartermaster in the Union army he went to Nashville in 1864 and later in that city conducted a livery barn, a hotel and also the stockyards. Suffering the loss of his property through fire, he removed to Missouri and purchases a large tract of land at $8 an acre. There he engaged in raising stock. Meanwhile his eldest son had come to California and engages in railroading. From him reports went back to Missouri concerning favorable openings in the west. In this way Mr. McCoy was led to remove to the coast accompanied by his two sons. Later he was joined by his wife, who had remained back in Ohio for a visit with old friends. For a time he carrier on a hotel in Salinas. During 1876 he settled on the Shepherd place in the San Miguel canyon. In 1877 he came to the Corral de Tierra, securing the title to thirty-four acres." "During early life in Ohio he took an active part in Masonry and bulit the Masonic hall at Bucyrus, that state. A Bible that he had at the time of his marriage more than sixty years ago is now in the possession of his son, J. W."

To this account we can add that he was already operating a hotel in 1860 in Crawford Co., Ohio. The village of Crestline now straddles the boundary between Crawford and Richland Counties. Catherine's name was originally written in the family bible as Johnson, but was altered by the insertion of a large but awkward t to read Johnston. The date of birth of William Watson McCoy is not given in the family bible. The date quoted here is likely correct, as the account is very detailed. However, the dates given in the California Great Registers (voter registration records) for Monterey County, 1875-1884, place his birth anywhere from 1818 to 1823, based on his reported age and the year of publication of the list. Part of this uncertainty appears to stem from the fact that the registration data, including the age and the date of registration, were carried forward from year to year without being updated. In effect, the age shown appears not to be the age as of the date of publication, but as of the date of registration shown in that entry. The shows he registered to vote on February 23, 1875 as William Watson McCoy, farmer living in Salinas, age 57, born in Pennsylvania. This is consistent with his reported birth date of February 22, 1818. While the registration number changes from year to year as the list was revised, the information remained exactly the same, including the age. Not every list has survived; the ones for 1880-1883 are missing. The lists for 1884 and 1886, however, show a new registration date (January 10, 1882 ) and place of residence (Toro), and his age is now 64. This entry requires a birth date of February 22, 1817 rather than 1818.

Hannah MCCULLOUGH       (ID #I17260)

(female)
Father: Samuel MCCULLOUGH (d. 1804)

Family 1 : Alexander MCCOY (b. ABT 1770, d. ABT 1841)
  1. +Samuel MCCOY (b. 01 APR 1797, d. 08 MAR 1882)
  2. +George MCCOY (b. ABT 1807, d. MAY 1860)

  5. +Mary MCCOY (b. ABT 1814, d. AFT 1880)
  6. +Alexander MCCOY (b. 1815, d. 1897)

 

Hannah is identified as the mother of Samuel McCoy on the basis of the names of Samuel's children -- first son and second daughter are named after Samuel's wife's parents, therefore we expect his first daughter and second son to be named after his own parents, who would thus be Hannah McCullough and John Alexander McCoy. The marriage record is tentatively accepted as being from the right county, the right time frame, and "Cay?" is plausibly some derivative of McCoy. Original record must be examined.

She is not mentioned in the will of Samuel McCullough, 1802, Cecil Co., MD, that mentions son-in-law Alexander McCay and grandson Samuel McCay. This could mean that she was already dead by that time, but it is also possible that she was purposefully omitted from the will (her husband Alexander McCay received only 5 shillings). Also, it is likely that the Samuel McCullough who settled about 1816 in Adams Co., OH was a son or possibly a grandson of this Samuel McCullough.

If Hannah was actually dead by 1802, then the later children of Alexander McCoy must have come from another wife. In turn, since all of those later children appear with Samuel McCoy as heirs-at-law in the estate of Alexander McCoy "Junior" in Brown Co., IL (1860's), it would follow that heirs-at-law at that time included siblings of the half blood. The consequence of this would be that our ancestor John Wingate McCoy could no longer be considered a son of Alexander McCoy, at least not a legitimate one. He would have to be either an illegitimate son, or else a son of some other McCoy, though presumably one that was related to Alexander, because of his close association with Samuel McCoy after they left Maryland. For the present, however, we found no direct evidence that half-siblings would be considered heirs-at-law in the 1860's in Illinois, and if they were not, then Hannah must be the mother of all the children listed here.

[6282] According to Brown Co., IL histories, both wives of Alexander McCoy died before he brought his family to Adams Co., OH. However, there is a woman over the age of 45 in the Alexander McCoy household, 1820 census, Adams Co., OH.

[14788] DAR: Cecil Co., MD Marriage Licenses, 1777-1840 (ND). Listing on this date for "Alexander Cay?" and Hannah McCollough, performed by William Duke, minister -- he was follower of Francis Ashbury & minister at Elkton.

The will of Samuel McCullough of South Susquehannah, Cecil Co., MD has been quoted incorrectly in secondary sources. It is in will book "FF 6", Cecil Co., MD, pp. 353-355 (FHL microfilm #0013868). The will is dated 20 aug 1802. It was attested as the true last will and testament of the late Samuel McCullough 24 apr 1804, by his son Samuel and thus admitted to probate on that date. On 20 apr 1804, the other executor named in the will, James McCullough, resigned from this responsibility, thus leaving the younger Samuel as the sole executor.

The heirs named in the will were:

The remainder of the personal estate was to be shared equally between Eleanor and Margaret. The real estate was to go to his son, Samuel McCullough.

From the order in which the heirs are listed, and the amounts that are bequeathed to them, it appears that the order is significant, likely signifying the following order of birth: Samuel, Margaret, John, Mary, and Eleanor. The remaining children seem not to be favored, perhaps signifying that their marriages were contrary to their father's wishes. However, it is also possible that they had already received a marriage settlement of some kind. Secondary sources say that the son-in-law John McCullough and his wife Sarah McCullough died much later in Adams Co., OH, and if that is true, we cannot conclude that Hannah McCullough had already died by 1802, since Sarah, apparently still alive, is not mentioned in the will. The fact that Samuel McCay was so favored in the will is quite striking. It is not the case that he was the first grandchild, if the secondary sources can be believed, nor was he the first grandchild named Samuel. Yet he had somehow become his grandfather's favorite, as a child who had just passed his fifth birthday.

The secondary sources say that Mary, daughter of Passmore McVey and Eleanor McCullough, married the Samuel McCullough who settled in Adams Co., OH. Personal correspondence quoted in the Adams Co., OH history by Evans and Stivers shows that Mary (b. 1792) and this Samuel (b. 1775) were cousins. (Specifically, his letters say Mary was the only daughter of Samuel's uncle McVey, who was still living in 1813.) But we have not yet found any primary source that proves the parentage of this Mary McVey, which would allow us to establish the parentage of Samuel. Could he have been the son of the John McCullough who married Sarah McCullough? That would explain his connection with Rockbridge Co., VA. The account of Evans and Stivers also indicates that the last surviving son of Samuel McCullough and Mary McVey was William, who lived at Sidney, Shelby Co., Ohio. The 1880 and 1900 censuses indicate this William was born in West Virginia (thus not quite agreeing with Evans and Stivers), and that his father was also born in West Virginia or Virginia, and his mother in Maryland. This information appears to confirm that this Samuel was the son of John, and thus grandson of the elder Samuel and the first cousin of his wife Mary McVey.

A volume of inventories from the Register of Wills, Cecil Co., Maryland designated as 1802-1807 contains information about the estate of Samuel McCullough (pp. 249, 250, 316). The estate was appraised by Thomas Jenny and John Pollock (called Pogue in at least two places) on 09 may 1804, for a total of $227.80. The estate sale was held 22 may 1804. There is a list of the buyers; Alexander McCoy bought three chains, a gun, a red cow, some linen cloth, a cart, and some bacon. Interestingly, a John McCoy also purchased a "flacked" (i.e., spotted) cow.
