| ||Notes for DANIEL COY:|
Mrs. Packey relates: "Daniel Coy migrated to Mahoning County, Ohio while still under age.One historian wrote that he was the first of the Coys to come to Mahoning County.Another historian wrote that his half-brother, Henry Coy II was the first to arrive in Mahoning County.It is possible, though there was 14 years difference in their ages they came together to settle there."
