Mary E Norris McCord
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1857
Michigan, USA
Death: Dec. 22, 1889
Ionia County
Michigan, USA

Wife of Joseph H. McCord, daughter of Joseph M. Norris and Clarissa A. Ellis. Grand-daughter of Wesley Ellis and Elizabeth "Eliza" King. Great-grand-daughter of Amos King and Elizabeth Bacon.

Mary and Joseph McCord had four children, before she died in 1889, though little is known about the first child. Nothing was known of him by my grandmother, who grew up there, and was Joseph and Mary's granddaughter.


1. James O. "Jay" McCord* b. 25 Mar 1878, Easton Twp., Ionia. MI. d. 13 Aug 1904, Boon, Wexford, MI.

2. Jennie Elizabeth McCord b. 23 Nov 1879, Easton Twp. d. 17 Mar 1952, Ionia, Ionia, MI.

3. Nettie M. McCord b. 4 May 1881, Easton Twp. d. 8 Jun 1947, Saranac, Ionia, MI.

4. Bertha H. McCord b. 6 May 1884 Easton Twp., d. 7 Jan 1920, E. Grand Rapids, Kent, MI.

*First child was listed as J.O. McCord on the birth record and one census, but Jay McCord on other records. (His grandfather was Joseph Norris, uncle was Oliver Norris and great-grandfather was James W. Norris, so he could have been named after any or all.) On one or two census records Jo / Jay is referred to as an adopted son.

IONIA DAILY STANDARD dated Tuesday Feb. 25, 1902:
"Jay McCord living on the River Road in Easton, is the latest smallpox victim in that township."

Jay recovered from smallpox, but died two years later, in a trainyard accident.
