McCOY from Pt Augusta - Qld/NSW connection
« on: Wednesday 14 October 09 01:43 BST (UK) »
Hoping I can find some more information on Percy McCoy b.1894 Pt Augusta, parents James & Mary Jane McCoy, nee Reid.
I have found Percy's army records on NAA, they state:-

NAA - occupation Stockman.  Enlisted 29.11.1915 at Towoomba, Qld.   NOK - brother John, Para Station via Wentworth, NSW.
Religion - C of E

In 1918 he was awarded the Military Medal for Bravery.
In 1919 he was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal.

Did he marry?
Were there children?

I also can't find some of Percy's other siblings.
John James b.1875 Melrose, SA (mentioned above so likely in NSW)
Patrick b.1877 Melrose, SA
Mary Jane b.1886 Melrose m. Peter Christopher Martion 1910 Pt Augusta.
Vera Olive b. 1897 Pt Augusta, SA

I've checked SA bmd's but don't have SA deaths after 1915.
I've also checked Ryerson Index and SAGHS.

Any help appreciated,
Thanks,
Sashar

Thanks for your prompt reply Leanne and also for the cemetery link.
The information fits for that to be Percy.
He may have married Lillian later in life or she may have been his partner.  I will do a bit more searching on your recommended sites.
Thanks,

Sashar

Wow, thankyou all!
Cazay - that has helped immensely, I can start to put some marriages together now as I'm sure I saw Clarice's name in NSW records but with the McCoy men having such common names it's been hard to link people.
Sue - thanks for the BH details re Leonard, I seem to have quite a few of my family members ending up in Broken Hill.
Dee - thank you for the deaths in SA after 1915, I did not have them and I was particularly after those 2.
Leanne - Yes, I've checked through SAGHS and there are a lot of McCoy's there that still may fit my lot, just need to connect some more dots.   I'll get back to the other sites you recommended and hopefully be able to put some more info on my tree.

Thankyou all, this has been a great help,
Kind Regards,
Sashar

I only posted those two deaths, Sashar, as they lived and died in Port Augusta.

I couldn't see any of the others you listed.
