I am looking for information about my great grandfather Gilbert McCoy. I know he was born in Wales. My mother told me that he was the treasurer of Gratiot County for most of his life. His daughter was Lucretia Hannah McCoy who was born in 1862 but I don't know if she had any siblings nor do I know her mother's name. Also, I had an Uncle who was born in Bethany in Gratiot County. There is no such town on my maps so I assume the name has been changed. Can you tell me what the name is now? I appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you, Jerry Predhome
