about mcCoy fort
It was built by William McCoy, around 1769, apparently as his house
and then it was referred to as a fort in various documents in the
1770's. After the Indians in the area attacked Fort Donnally, with a
terrible massacre, they broke up into smaller forces and one group attacked Fort McCoy and failed to overcome the settlers hidden inside.
