about Hoy, John
Name: Hoy, John
Birth Place: Morrow co., OH
Birth Date: 1836
Father's Name: William Hoy, Sr.
Mother's name: Cynthia Wallace
Death Date: After 1880
Military service: Co. E, 9 Ohio Vol. Inf.
Other Notes: Taken prisoner by confederates who thought him a dangerous man, sentenced him to be shot. John ate a quantity of tobacco to make himself sick, and thinking he would die soon anyway, the Confederates sent him to Andersonville, rather than waste bullets on him. Hence he survived his death sentence.
Died John Hoy
John Hoy, one of the old settlers of Cherokee county died on Sunday of catarrh. Mr. Hoy lived south of Monmouth and for years has been a familiar figure on our street. He was 69 years old, he came to Kansas in 1868 and has lived on the farm where he died ever since. In the early struggle with the Joy syndicate for possession of the lands in Crawford and Cherokee counties he was one of the leading spirits, and his wife who is quite a literary woman wrote for the eastern papers giving the people of the United States an idea of the suffering of the early settlers and how they had been robbed of their lands, by the government selling it to a syndicate for $1 per acre.
Mr. Hoy was a good citizen, beloved by his neighbors. He was a member of the A.O.U.W. and leaves an insurance of $2000 besides a farm out of debt. He leaves a wife and children to mourn his loss. He was buried at Star Valley grave yard on Monday.
