WILLIAM McCOY


Source: Crawfordsville Daily, Monday, December, 24, 1917 - thanks Kim H :)


William McCoy, 60 years old, a native of Crawfordsville and a resident of this city all his life, died at his home, 404 east Market street, at 9 o'clock this morning, after an illness of several weeks duration with dropsy and complications. Mrs. McCoy's death is believed to have been hastened by grief brought on by the tragic death of his son, Arthur McCoy, who was drowned at Martin's dam a year ago. Until that time Mr. McCoy had been in good health but the shock of his son's death caused a decline in his health that continued until his death today. For several days he had been suffering great pain and his death came as a relief to his agony. Mr. McCoy was one of the city's best known residents. For many years he had been a painter and paper hanger. At one time several years ago he was chief of police and served in the position efficiently. Mr. McCoy was born in Crawfordsville January 19, 1857. He was the son of Perry and Susan McCoy, pioneers in the city. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Isabelle Eagan McCoy, to whom he was married August 8, 1880; a brother, James McCoy, of Indianapolis, and a sister, Mrs. T.J. Brooks of Denver, Colo. Funeral arrangements had not been announced this afternoon, but it was expected the service will be held on Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. The services will be in charge of Rev. R.E. Moss, pastor of the First Christian Church
