The Coy Surname Project
This project is to help Coy descendants find their ancestors. The following families are now part of the project: 1. John Coy was born about 1748-1750 in Nine Partners, Dutchess County, New York. He married Molly Millett in 1773 in Gloucester, Mass. The family moved to Minot, Maine after the Revolutionary War. We are trying to connect to ancestors. 2. Descendants of Richard Coy and Lucy Lenton of England. Two sons, Richard and Matthew came to America (with sister, Mary). Matthew married Elizabeth Roberts and Richard married Martha Haffield. Anyone who may be connected to this line. 3. John Coy was born abt. 1710 in Co. Galway, Ireland. He married Hannah Gready. We are looking for ancestors. 4. Young John Coy was born Henry Wiltsie in Dutchess Co., New York and was kidnapped and changed his name to Coy. We are looking for Wiltsies (or any spelling) who may be related.
