I'm looking for two obituaries, father and daughter.

MELVYN H. MCCOY, DIED El Paso, TX, December 1, 1988. He retired from the US Navy as a Rear Admiral in 1957.

ANNE MCCOY SOULE, died Berkeley, CA, October 22, 1994.

I am trying to locate a second, younger daughter of Melvyn McCoy named Jean. I hope to get a clue to her whereabouts from the sought obituaries.

dejola,

This is not one of the obituaries you are hoping to find. But, nonetheless, this obituary of Winsor Soule (1927-2009), husband of Anne McCoy (1931-1994), could be helpful:

Have you got access to the genealogical site Ancestry?
http://www.ancestry.com/

The genealogist who provided genealogical details about "Melvyn Harvey McCoy Rear Admiral 1907–1988" is (in her own words) "willing to help other Ancestry members".

Also from Ancestry, it appears that Jean is also deceased, although there is detail as to her married name:

Name: Jean McCoy
[Jean Wittkoff]
Gender: Female
Race: White
Birth Date: 12 Dec 1936
Birth Place: Berkeley, California
Father Name: Melvyn H McCoy
Mother Name: Elizabeth A Parrott
Death Date: Dec 1986
Type of Claim: Original SSN.
Notes: Jan 1953: Name listed as JEAN MCCOY; Mar 1955: Name listed as JEAN WITTKOFF

dejola,

As your question will expire within the next few days I was wondering if you consider either David's or my reply as having been helpful. Please let us know if you require any further research or clarification.

The information provided by David and q21 fell short of the mark in terms of what I was looking for. Never the less it was helpful. I decided to search the civil online records of the El Paso courts. There I found a lawsuit against Admiral McCoy. There was a codefendant named Anne Soule who turned out to be he married daughter of Melvyn McCoy. In the end I found both Anne and Jean both now deceased. But I also found two children of Jean, one of which turned to be the family archivist. A font off information.

I am happy to split the $20 between David and q21, if that's okay.

Thank you both.

This question is deemed answered jointly by David Sarokin and q21.

dejola,

Thank you for giving us a detailed account of how you consider the research results as having been helpful.

As it is not possible to split the payment David kindly let me know that he, in this case, would let me close your question, i.e. by posting an "answer".

Should you disagree with our decision not to split the $20 you could request a refund and open two new questions (one for David and one for me) at a price as you would like to choose.

Regards,
q21

I just happened on to this site and I an Melvyn McCoy's neice and Anne and Jean's cousin.  My brother, myself and our cousin Raydonna are the only living relatives other than Anne and Jean's children.  Betty Ann was their mother and Melvyn married two more times.  Anne and Jeane both died fairly young.  I'm interested in what your involvement with our family is.  Please feel free to contact me at my email.
