Mrs. S. A. McCoy Dead
Mrs. S. A. McCoy, widow of Henry R. McCoy, died at her home in Sherman last Monday morning about 5 o’clock. She had retired the night before apparently in good health as could be expected of one her age. At 2 o’clock she woke up, sat up, but did not complain of any illness. At 7 o’clock her daughter went to her room and found her dead.
Mrs. McCoy was 83 years old, had lived in Sherman many years. Her husband died there in 1890. She leaves nine children to mourn her loss: Dr. I. C. McCoy of Fort Worth; D. and Alvy B. McCoy of this place who were in Sherman after her death was made known; Dr. C. and C. H. McCoy and Mrs. Frazier of Ardmore, Mrs. Wilder and P. W. McCoy of Wynnewood, I. T. and Miss Lizzie McCoy of Sherman. All the children were present at the funeral services.Mrs. McCoy was well known in Sherman and many of her relatives are living in Caddo, among them are A. B. McCoy, Devotey McCoy, and Mrs. C. A. Bilbo, who have the sympathy of many friends in their intense bereavement. The Herald extends condolences.
