Sarah Elizabeth "Sally" McCord McCoy
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 3, 1885
Pontotoc
Pontotoc County
Mississippi, USA
Death: Sep. 17, 1972
Hughes
St. Francis County
Arkansas, USA

Sallie was the daughter of Joe and Mollie McCord of Pontotoc, MS area.

Her siblings were;
Thomas (Tom) born Dec 1879, MS
Pearl born Nov 1882, MS
Margerett (Maggie) born Sep 1888, MS
John (Johnnie) born June 1891, MS

Sallie McCord married John Teague McCoy and had three children with him.

The three children are:
Sarah Ethel McCoy Presley b. 06/16/1912
Mildred McCoy Powell
John Teague McCoy, Jr.

Sallie was John's second wife, and they married in 1910. John's first wife, Jennie Frances Pitt McCoy died in 1909.

Sallie lived with John and her children at their homestead in Cherry Creek, Pontotoc Co., MS. She was a homemaker and cared for John during his long-term illness.

Sallie is my great-grandmother; Ethel is my grandmother. Unusual for the time, Sally stood 6'3" and was slender built, hair upkept with a high collared dress, the perfect Victorian woman.

Sallie was living in Hughes, AR with Eack and Ethel Presley at the time she became ill and passed away in 1972 at the age of 87. She was taken back to Mississippi and buried at Priceville Cemetery, where husband John Teague McCoy is also buried.

The original of the family portrait that I have posted on this site belongs to me personally.
