There is confusion regarding William McCoy Revolutionary War service. I think we have all combined 2 different William McCoys. One was presumed born in Virginia between 1750-1755 and served in the Virginia Continental Line, see War Land Bounty card. This was issued in 1784. Another William McCoy was born in Maryland and served in Maryland Troops from 30 Apr 1778–16 Aug 1780 the Muster Rolls and Other Records of Service of Maryland Troops in the American Revolution, 1775-1783 states he was discharged and a prisoner.

Nice call out! I believe I have photo copies of the military card also. Do we have signatures of both McCoy’s from anything to know which is which? I don’t know that I do if it’s not on the card.
