Elliott Alexander "Uncle Doc" McCoy was the son of Uriah McCoy and his wife Elizabeth Rutherford.
He married Louisa Vicy Stafford on 9 Feb 1879 in Logan, West Virginia. They were the parents of 10 children, 7 daughters and 3 sons.

He left his family about the time of the birth of his youngest son, Robert Bob McCoy, and disappeared. His oldest daughter, Ida McCoy Varney, told the family that one day her Dad said I can't take this anymore and just up and left. The family never knew what happened to him. However, thanks to the great research done by Waukesha Sammons, his life afterwards has finally been discovered.
