Her father was William McCoy.
Her mother was Jane Hales (McCoy).
Her siblings were John Frederic McCoy (Dec 8 1867 / Jan 25, 1949),
Mary Lucinda McCoy (Aug 29, 1869 / Oct 9, 1884),

By 1880 her family was settled in Huron County, Ontario. They lived 1/4 mile from the Kee family farm.
She moved with husband Dan Belcher to Idaho in 1896. After his death, she operated the Belcher & Legler grocery store in Pocatello.
A few years later she moved back to Canada and married Wesley Kee. They lived in Perdue, SK where she remained until 1945.
After a few years in Victoria, she moved to Vancouver, BC where she died.
She is buried in Colwood, Victoria, BC.
John Frederic McCoy married Aimy Eleanor Pugh and had a daughter named Ethel Bessie 'Ginty'. Ginty married Morris William Waldron. Their son Jim Waldron has done a lot of genealogical research. He owns many of the Armstrong and McCoy original documents used in my research.
