TitleFarms Owned by Isaac McCoy
AbstractDescription of the land owned by Reverend Isaac McCoy as his first farm and burial site for his wife, Christiana McCoy, and other family members. According to the local history index card, all a part of Union Cemetery.
NotesApproximately from the State line east to Belleview avenue--55th to 64th street--was the first farm owned by the Reverend Isaac McCoy. The residence stood about a block from the Meriwether home. The first eighty of this tract, my grandfather bought from Dr. Johnston Lykins, who had entered it. This is just across the street from the Ward estate. After possessing it for a year or two, he sold it back to his son-in-law, Dr. Lykins. (He had married Delilah McCoy). [sic] In a portion of this tract, a great-grandson, and a great-great-granddaughter, now reside [in 1921]. Two acres of this tract were set apart as the McCoy cemetery. This hallowed spot, today, is the southwest corner of the grounds surrounding the J. W. Perry home, 1335 Santa Fe Road. Here were buried the remains of Mrs. Christiana Polk McCoy, wife of Isaac McCoy; her daughters, Josephine Eleanor, Delilah, Sarah Christiana and Virginia, and her sons, Josephus, William and Rice. Also, less close relatives and a number of negro slaves. A plat of the interments there exists in the writing of the late John C. McCoy, a son, and my father.
