JOHN McCOY is the eldest son of William McCoy. He came into this world
on the 20th day of February, 1881, and is not but a little more than 20
years old, but possesses business qualifications as great as many a man
ten years older. There are four children in his father's family,
equally divided, two girls and two boys. The father is a farmer, and
like him, John was reared on a farm, and early learned the rudiments of
farm work. He went to school at the village school at Dry Ridge, and
always showed great promise, being studious and quick to learn. After
completing the common school course at Dry Ridge, he entered the Verona
League Institute and took a course under Miss Nannie Hamilton,
graduating there last year. His education is complete, and he is able
to take charge of the affairs of any bank or other institution that
requires pluck and brains for its management. August 1, 1900, John
began work in the People's Bank at Dry Ridge as clerk, under J. N.
Lemmon, cashier. Mr. Lemmon is warm in his praise of John, and says he
can run the affairs of the bank just as well as he (Mr. Lemmon) can.
