Hi again,

His 1st wife's name is:   Margaret Anne Willoughby b. c 1830 in Ga. and they had 7 children between 1852 and 1870.

His 2nd wife's name is:  Georgia A. ? b: Abt Aug 1857 in Ga.  Marr: c 1895.

I am wondering if you have documentation of Margaret Anne's maiden name? I can't find any. All of the other research is great; I have found death/burial info on both Duncan and Margaret.

I've spent quite a few hours looking in many places but I cannot find anything concrete - sorry.

However, this is what I think from what I have found and not found:

His parents were John T. McCoy (b. betw. 1812 & 1820) who married Martha E. Turner (b. 1818) in Troup Co. Georgia, 29 Mar 1843.

John's father was born in North Carolina - so John could have been born in N.C. - but his mother was born in Ga. which is my guess.

Dunkin served in the US Civil War. He could have been born in 1835 +/-  2 yrs.

These are my thoughts but are by no means correct.
