The Real McCoy(s) - Civil War Soldiers From St. Clair Co., Michigan

From Seeking Michigan:

Lola Rice married a descendant from the same McCoy family.  Emma McCoy, sister to the two soldiers listed above, married William Stage.  Their son, Charles Stage, married Lola Rice.  Lola was the daughter of Charles Logan and Mary Josephine (Johnson) Rice.  Charles Logan Rice was the first cousin of my great grandmother, Katie Rice.  Mary Josephine Johnson was the sister of my great-grandfather, James Dudley Johnson, so Lola was a double cousin.  (Katie Rice and James Dudley Johnson were my great-grandparents). The Johnsons and Rices historically had roots in Georgia, Tennessee and southern Illinois, not Michigan.
