County Tyrone, Northern Ireland
Samuel (styled "Sam'l" on his gravestone) was the father of William Andrew McCoy, and my great-grandfather.
He and his wife Clara had four sons: Alexander (Alex), William, Charles (Charlie), and Robert. They also had four daughters: Violet (who married Frank Hardy), Clara (married George Brian), and Mary (married Claude Chappell - not sure of the surname's spelling).
Samuel died of lip cancer in 1932. His wife Clara died in the same year, as did Samuel's son Alex (who is also buried at Woodland Cemetery). It was a very sad year for the McCoy family.
Note: Samuel's obituary said that he was born in Omagh (Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland), but family tradition is ambiguous regarding the name of his birthplace. It is possible that he was born in Co. Armagh instead.
Warmest thanks to Milou for her kind sponsorship of my great-grandfather's memorial!
