Sally was the daughter of Joseph A. and Malvina McCord (Joe and Molly) of Pontotoc, MS area.

Her siblings were;
Thomas (Tom) born Dec 1879, MS
Cornelia Melvinia Pearl born Nov 1882, MS; m. John Henry Rush
Margerett (Maggie) born Sep 1888, MS; m. Luther Rush
John (Johnnie) born June 1891, MS

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

The three children are:
Sarah "Ethel" McCoy Presley b. 06/16/1912
John Teague "JT" McCoy, Jr. b. 1914
"Mildred" Delores McCoy Powell b. 03/17/1917

Sally was John's second wife, and they married in March 1910. John's first wife, Jennie Frances Pitts McCoy died in August 1909.

Sally 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.

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

Sally 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.

The name Sally is on her gravestone, however, it is believed she spelled her name "Sallie". See the gravestone for the Infant Son, 1910.
