From Florida : Reg.#2683, Cst. William John McCoy


Family from Florida
'Friends Not Forgotten'

Hi Buffalo Joe,

I read in the Lanark Co. Genealogical Society Newsletter of your dedication to finding and documenting the location of all deceased RCMP veterans. Thank you so much for undertaking such a mammoth task.

My husband's grandmother's brother was William John McCoy and I found him in the Graves Database. The new info there of the Quarterly Obit Index number V34 (3), his Rank - Constable, and his Regimental No. - 2683 was very nice to find.

I have his birth date and place, his death date and place, and the place where he was buried if you are interested. I also have his spouse's name, parents' names and children's names. He died when he was 98 and at that time (1967) he was supposedly the oldest ex member of the North West Mounted Police.

Please let me know if you would like the above info and I will send it to you.
