Death: Apr. 6, 1882

Deputy Court Clerk for Kenton County, Councilman of Covington, and member of the Covington School Board.

Leaving his native Greenup County, John Mackoy first arrived in Covington on June 10, 1829. After disembarking from the steam boat on which he had taken passage to Cincinnati, he boarded a skiff at the foot of Fifth Street. Landing in Covington at the foot of Garrard Street, he proceeded to Alexander Connelly's Tavern at the northwest corner of Second and Garrard Streets. His destination was the home of his brother-in-law Gustavus Fisher at 'The Cross-Roads' in Boone County, which he reached by taking Maj. Allen Gaines's stage line. Remaining in Boone and Grant Counties a short while, he settled in Covington in November 1830, where he and his brother-in-law operated a business on Greenup Street located where the Planters' Tobacco-House later stood.
