On the census above on page 235b dw 74, fm 74 I found the following listing. McCoy, Frank, 39, m. w. Farmer $600, $500, Kentucky; Margaret 37 f w, Keeping house, Kentucky; Ruth 17 at home; Madison 14, at home; James 12 at home; Alexander J. 8, Jacob 5, Mary E. 4; Robt G1. All were born in Kentucky. Previously I had found at the LDS in the vital statistics kept in the 1850s in KY a birth record for Owen County which showed F. M. McCoy father, Margaret Ball mother, Ruth McCoy child born 9 Jan 1852. Madison McCoy in this family is my great grandfather who was in Lavaca Co., TX on the 1880 census. Would like to hear from any one in Owen Co., who has connections to this family. Thank you, Sybil Thomas Chapman
