Hi, My name is Crystal. My brother n law is Walter McRoy the son of the late Coleman McRoy and Bessie Willingham Crowe. Coleman's dad was the late Henry Hayes McRoy and his mom was the late Ella McRoy. They had 7 children together with whom there is Coleman, Leo, Thomas, and more unknown's. I do have Coleman's obit but it includes his sisters but only as Mrs. (Married) name. I don't know if your person is kin to my in laws father but here is what I do know. Thomas McRoy Born in 1838 married Caroline Miller 1842. She is the daughter of Dave Miller and Martha Hendrix. together they had 6 children Sophia, Mary, David Netter,Monroe, Perry and Annie. Henry Hayes 1883-1958 had a sister names Leona(born 6/7/1885 and died 7/1/1978) that married a Preston Miller. There is also a John Mcroy that was born between 1850-1860 in Tennessee that married a Louise(a) Rickard(She was from Ky) they had a child together named Willow born in 1880 that married her cousin Eddie Lee Rickard before she passed in Jan. 1907. Mind you during all of this revolution era people changed their last name spelling due to no social security records, birth certificates,computers, and lack of education. in 1852 the Mcroy's were listed as last name McRay and in 1860 changed the spelling to McRoy only to change it again in 1870 to McElroy. 1930 census has it listed correctly as (in reference to my in law's dad) Coleman head of household, Ella born 1890, Leo born 1910, Lon Ella born in 1917, and Thomas H born in 1920. Henry Hayes McRoy was born in 1881 in Sacramento, Ky. He lived in McLean Cty, Ky. He was married to Ella whom of which he had 7 children together. He was later married to a Ruthie Mae Shirles in 1938 and they had 5 children together. henry was born on 10/7/1881 and died on 12/18/1957. His parents were Louise(a) Rickard and John Mcroy. His sisters were Willow Rickard, Leona Miller McRoy Brothers are George McRoy and Elic Mcroy. Henry and his second wife, Ruthie's children's names are Emma Lee, Anna Lou-Willa, Cordie Mae, John Henry, and Elic George.
