+3 votes
Does anyone have any information at all on Frances Blair who used to be a McCoy, she married a Joseph Blair and had the following children: Bessie Mae b. December 28, 1895 d. November/December 1973 (who married Artley Blake), Martha, and Herman...possibly others. Thanks in advance. :) :) :) ***P.S. I'm thinking that Frances was the daughter of John R. McCoy (born around 1840 in Pike Co., KY), he marrried his second wife Letta "Letty" E. Elswick ( married her on 03-03-1870 in Pike Co. , K.Y.) she had the following children: Benjamin b. ABT 1870, Frances b. ABT 1873 (possibly my great x2 grandmother), Mary Emily "Emma" b. ABT 1875 and James b. ABT 1878.
