I am so excited. I cannot beleive that I was able to get some information on Henry McRoy. My sister started the tree a while ago and seemed to hit a wall. I will tell you what I know and have.
I am the grandson of Henry Hayes McRoy and Ruthie Shirles. I am the son of Emma Lee. She is still living in Kentucky.
*Anna lou-willa 1941-1995 Died in Indianapolis, Indiana *Cordie Mae 1943-? Must have forgotten to include in my notes. Will check on it. *John Henry (Hardrock - nickname) 1945-1987 Died in Island, Kentucky *Elic George 1951-2006 Died in Indianapolis, Indiana
Henry and Ruthie were married November 1, 1938.
My sister believes that Henry served in the Spanish-American War in the Phillipines. He supposedly registered in Evansville, Indiana. would you know?
I have a copy of Henry's death certificate, marriage license (bond) to Ruthie, and an Obituary.
I also know that his father, John McRoy also went by that name Jack.
If you have any questions, please ask? I will ask my mother and sister for any more information. Unfortunately, Henry was about 55 years old when he married Ruthie, so my mother does not remember much.
