      Greg - In the Progressive Age issue dated April 4, 1901, the death of a Will McCoy is mentioned.

      I am not sure if this info is within an article or an actual obituary. I found this in the Jackson County Death Index by Jan Boyd Roberts. Jan has gone thru hundreds of old (and current) newspapers making an "index" of all people's name that have died. The only info on the index is the person's name and the name and date of the newspaper where this info can be found.

      I will check into this further for you and see what I can find out.

      Hi all.

      Any one have access to this tragic story from the area newspapers or know anything about this? William McCoy was knifed from behind with a hawkbill knife while working with the reins of a mule in the Fackler area, and the man who committed the act later died of smallpox awaiting trial in the Jackson Co. jail. A cousin told me of this yesterday; I think I have the main points right, but will be very glad for any corrections and/or additions to the story.
