I can't find a Magoffin anywhere? Can you post the census?

 

Betty
It looks like that census shows Henry born in Virginia and Mary born in Kentucky?

Betty
That census shows Jackson Patrick as a farmer.

Henry McCoy (born in 1844 in Virginia as indicated in the 1860 census) appears to have been an african american who served in the Navy in the Civil war:

Virginia was a well known slave state so if you are looking for Henry's (and Mary's) parents you may have trouble finding detailed documentation. Your best bet may be to look for slave owners named McCoy in Virginia.

Here is a website (free): http://unknownnolonger.vahistorical.org/about-this-project

that is documenting lost slave names for Virginia- I did not find Henry or Mary but there is other information here that you may find helpful.
