I am the great grand daughter of Ora McCoy of Piso, Pike County, Ky

My GGM Ora McCoy married Dike E. Blackburn.  I found her on one census. I have her birthdate of 3-1887.  I was wondering if she is the Ora you are looking for? If so I am woking on tracking my entire family.

Thank you for the answer.  I found 2 mcCoy / Blackburn familes in that area of KY and did not want to go down the path wrong.  This Is my family tree as I have uncles matching 3 of my uncles names  and Alice is my grandmother.  I was told Dyke was not the real name.  Now that I have Elias I can go back further.  I have his draft card where he used the name Dike.  Thank you very much for your quick respose.
