Name-ComRoy David Coy Sr. is commonly known as Roy Coy. 
Note*This account was contributed by Jewel Ruth (Coy) Mehner, Roy David Coy, Jr. and Donald Raymond Coy, June, 1998, the only living children of Roy and Hazel Coy.

Roy was born in a sod house in Grenfell, Assiniboia, North West Territory. This area was once inhabited by Indians speaking Athabaskan, Algonquin, and Sioux languages. They depended on caribou and moose in the north and buffalo in the south. French trading posts were established about 1750, owned by Hudson's Bay Company, and first permanently settled in 1774. The territory was ceded to the Canadian government in 1870 as part of the Northwest Territories; it became a province of Canada in 1905.

Roy was born on the 18th day of February, 1889 and died the 2nd day of July, 1946, in Seattle, Washington. He was the third born child and third son born to Leveret David and Frances Jane (Ennis) Coy. (See Frances Jane [Ennis] Coy's for more about notes about the Coy family).

Eventually they lived at 4218 Latona Avenue with his parents. He attended Seattle High School until Lincoln High School was built in the Latona district, then completed his high school education at Lincoln High School.

Roy worked in lumber camps before attending the University of Washington and receiving his Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical Engineering. He courted Hazel Ruth Snyder for four years before marrying her in Seattle, King County, Washington on the 16th of June, 1917 at her parents, Alfred Matthew and May Viola (Barney) Snyder's home at 2413 Dexter Ave. Seattle, Washington. Roy chose to work for the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company at 3rd Avenue and Seneca Street in the Repairs Department as a Technician, which he worked at for 27 years before his sudden death on the 2nd day of July, 1946. When Dad and Mom married, they purchased and made their home on a houseboat on Portage Bay, in Seattle. The houseboat was moored at different locations, the first being at 3226 Fuhrman Avenue North. Next they moved to 1220 East Shelby Street, then 3008 ½ Fuhrman Avenue North, and last being to 1211 East Edgar Street. Our telephone number was Capital 1059. The houseboat was our home for some twenty years. They had seven children, two of whom died, leaving three daughters and two sons. Dad said that a car couldn't hold all seven of us, but a boat could.

We attended the Tabernacle Baptist Church, which was located at 9123 15th Avenue North (later it was changed to Northeast), Seattle, Washington, Zone 2 (later it was 98122). We did this every Sunday morning. When we were in our teens we did the same thing on Sunday night and Thursday evenings for Prayer Meetings and Choir Practice. In 1938 we moved ashore from the houseboat at 1211 Edgar Street, into a large four bedroom house at 2607 12th Avenue North (it is now Boyer Avenue East).

In the early 1930s Dad and Mom had a 27foot cabin cruiser called the NOTOS (named because Dad didn't like to be towed) that the family cruised Puget Sound, San Juan Islands and Canada during his three week vacation each summer.

A poem to our Dad:

God Saw You

God saw you getting tired when a cure was not to be.
So He closed His arms around you and whispered
'Come to Me'
You didn't deserve what you went through
So He gave you a rest.
God's garden must be beautiful, He only takes the best.
And when we saw you sleeping
So peaceful and free from pain,
We could not wish you back to suffer that again.
 
Birth*He was born on 18 February 1889 in Grenfell, Assiniboia, North West Territory, Canada.1 
He was the son of Leverett David Coy and Frances Jane Ennis
Marriage*Roy David Coy Sr. married Hazel Ruth Snyder, daughter of Alfred Matthew Snyder and May Viola Barney, on 16 June 1917 in Seattle, King County, Washington, U.S.A..1 
Death*Roy David Coy Sr. died on 2 July 1946 in Doctor's Hospital, Seattle, King County, Washington, U.S.A., at age 57; He died of a Coronary Thrombosis.2 
Burial*He was buried on 5 July 1946 in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Seattle, King County, Washington, U.S.A..3

Name-ComSarah Cowperthwaite Coy is commonly known as Sadie.1 
Note*Sarah 'Sadie' Coy was first born to William Harry & Mary (Hoben) Coy. She was born in Gladstone, Manitoba, Canada in 1882 & came west to Grenfell with her parents, making the journey with oxen & covered wagon. Her husband, Harry Wright Spicer built the large house on Wolseley Avenue, which for many years the home of Fred & Ada Ball & is now(1980) occupied by Al & Gina Totten. Sadie & Harold are now (1977) both deceased. Sadie died on the 24th of December, and buried in the Grenfell Cemetery grave #13 1967, Harold died on the 17th of December, 1944, and is buried in grave 12 in the Grenfell Cemetery. The Grenfell Cemetery is located - R. M. of ELCAPO No. 154, Location NW Sec 33 T 16 R 7 W 2. Their son, Bill was City Clerk in Reginia, for some years & now (1980) has investments in oil. The large stone building which (in 1970) housed the jewelry store & Dr. Jeschke's office, & spacious house near the United Church known as the Rosborough House, are the Town's legacy from Dr. Hutchinson. This Scottish doctor homesteaded on the farm now (1970) owned by George Urshel, & it was while there that his wife died. He was a clever doctor, but was a victim of alcoholism. There was no doctor in the village at the time, the nearest practitioner being Dr. Dodds of Broadview. Sadie (Coy) Smalley relates how her father Harry Coy, often drove out for Dr. Hutchison if there was sickness in the village. If the doctor was under the influence of his arch enemy, Harvey would pick up the two black bags, as previously directed, & pump water over the addled head, to bring back a measure of sobriety. Harvey always maintained that Dr. Hutchinson, even when drunk knew more than most doctors did when sober. Dr. Hutchinson spent his later years in the village, where he was a dispenser of drugs as well as a practising physician. This account is found in the book, 'Grit and Growth, the story of Grenfell', published by the Grenfell Historical Committee, 1980.

In 1883 they moved to Grenfell, making the journey with oxen & covered wagon. Mary drove the wagon, while Harvey rode behind on horse back, driving the cattle. One can imagine that even at that early period when unusual things were seen in a frontier town, many eyes must have turned to watch the comely & courageous young woman purposefully guiding her oxen down Winnipeg's Main Street, with apparently no misgivings about her future in a wild & untried land. See his scrapbook for a microfilm printout of his marriage to Mary Hoben on the 9th day of March, 1882 and photos of his building. Two hundred and eighty miles west of Winnipeg, and near the centre of the district of the same name, stands the Town of Grenfell. Long sweeps of gently undulating prairie surround it on all sides, till met on the north and south at a distance of a few miles by a beautiful park-like country dotted with pretty popular bluffs, whose appearance strongly reminds them of the orchards and patches of woodland they left behind in their old eastern home. While bearing the marks of a 'hoary antiquity' in the many colored granites and other stones of which its principal buildings are now constructed, the town also evidences a very modern phase in human, or more properly speaking , Northwest, history by the paint being scarcely yet worn off its primitive buildings, if indeed they were ever so fortunate as to have had any put on them. Like many other western towns strung out in a long line between Winnipeg and the Rockies, Grenfell owes its present progressive and prosperous condition to the energy and industry of its citizens and the settlers in the neighborhood. The town dates its existence back to 1882, when the C.P.R. was carried along the prairie section, the line being dotted with the 'site of cities yet to be.' There were few buildings in Grenfell when the Coys arrived, only the station house, where George Weldon & his wife lived, & a few small shacks. Harvey's homestead was N.E. 14-17-8. Harvey fixed up living quarters over the Massey Harris Machine shop, & there three other children were born, Ethel (who died in 1921), Arthur (killed in the War October, 1916), & Dolly or Doll, born in 1886 married 09 October, 1912, Grenfell to Ellis Edmon Smalley, b. 13 May, 1877, d. 16 May, 1974 presently (1980) residing in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Lawrence, Bessie & Mary were born later. About 1887, Harvey had a harness shop where the Coy Block was built, & in 1888, it was later sold to G.G. Greenlees. They then built a new home beside the harness shop. Subsequently the shop, house & the Tryon Bank were all destroyed by fire. This time they found shelter over the Malcom & Shrine store where the Irving Store now stands. The Coy Block, & Tryon Bank were built in 1894. Mary had a Millner Shop in there at one period, new hats were always in demand, but it was customary, also frugal for ladies to bring their last years model to be re-trimmed, & thus be fashionable at a modest cost. Harvey & Mr. Powell had the Cockshutt & John Deere agency until Harvey sold out to Mr. Fitzgerald, & from the new merger the Grenfell Milling Company evolved. Harvey & Mr. Powell continued to share their real-estate interests.

THE NORTH WEST REBELLION
When the North West Rebellion broke out in 1885 there was great anxiety among the settlers in the village, and those who were widely scattered in the rural areas. The Indians of Crooked Lake Reserve far outnumbered the white settlers, and no one could predict what their attitude would be. If they chose to join the rebellion, the colonists' lives would be in jeopardy. A few of the women with children returned to the East till the trouble the trouble was over. Mrs. Armstong was one who did this, while her husband joined the Transport. The Birds, Faulkners, and Turners were packed to go when Mrs. Gil Faulkner gave birth to a son, Claude (who was later years the manager of the Beaver Lumber Company, Regina). When Mrs. Faulkner was unable to leave, the other families decided to remain also. The men were all issued rifles and rounds of ammunition, and took training under Colonel Lake. They slept with their rifles beside their beds at night, in case of surprise attack. A large pile of wood was stacked on the prairie near the Presbyterian Church, which would be lit as a warning beacon if the Indians took up arms. Outlying families would then gather as quickly as possible. Most of the women and children of the village stayed in the church at night, while a guard was stationed at Broadview ready to rush to the rescue, if necessary. Harvey used to tell a rather amusing story which indicates the tension in the settlement at the time. A rural family, afraid of Indians, left a trap door open in front of their house, as a first line of defense against 'skulking savages.' One cold stormy night three men had become lost. They wandered around until they found a fence, & followed it until it led to a settler's shack. The three of them, half frozen & blinded by the storm, pushed in the door & dropped unceremoniously into the cellar. It took a long time before they could convince the inhabitants that they were not Indians, but neighbors. Many of the men joined the 'transport,' hauling supplies from the railroad to the area north where the fighting was taking place. Col. Lake and George Weldon under took a recruiting campaign, and several young men volunteered for active service. Among these were Dan and Jim McDonell, Bob Copeland, and Harry Sayer. It took great courage for the women to remain in their lonely shacks, under threat of a local uprising. The Indians of the nearby reserve didn't join the rebellion, due largely to the good influence of the missionaries, the Indian agent, and other white settlers who had treated the Indians as friends. Osawe Pejkeese (Yellow Calf) was chief of the Sakimay Band at the time of the rebellion, but decided to keep his followers neutral. His bow and arrows have been preserved and placed in a museum. Mr. Riel Acroose has a copy of Treaty Number Four which applies to all of the Qu' Appelle Valley area. The original was written on parchment which had been carelessly folded, making it barely legible in the creases. Mrs. H. Ainger made an accurate copy of the document for Chief Baptiste McLeod. It wasn't until 1894 that Grenfell was incorporated as a village. Up until that time Mr. W.H. Thompson was the assessor, collector, & local manager, & he was also secretary of the schools. He received a salary of $25.00 a year, plus a three percent commission on collections. As the Hamlet grew, certain public works were urgently needed, & some form of Civil Government was required. A meeting of the citizens was called to discuss matter. As a result, on 27, March, 1894, a petition for the erection of a town site of Grenfell, as an unincorporated town comprising 320 acres was submitted to the Lieutenant-Governor of the North West Territories, with a statutory declaration by two of the leading merchants, namely Osmund Skrine & John Love. The application was submitted by W. Peel, advocate, Grenfell, Assiniboia. The Order of Incorporation of the Hamlet, Grenfell was approved 12 April, 1894. The tract of land was described as follows: 'That portion of the North West Territories comprised within the limits of the SOUTH HALF OF SECTION 8, TOWNSHIP 17, RANGE 7, WEST OF THE 2ND MERIDIAN.' NOTE - The southern limit of the village was Wolseley Avenue. Wednesday the 25th of April, 1894 was the date set for the election of an Overseer, and Harvey Coy was appointed & served a term as overseer for the Village. In 1910 in the village council, a motion was made by John MacLeod & seconded by Isaac Jones, that Grenfell be incorporated as a town. On the 25th of July, 1911 the application was acknowledged & the council was advised that, 'all requirements having been met, the village of Grenfell should be erected into a town on the 1ST DAY OF NOVEMBER, 1911,' The municipality now included the North half of Section 5, & the South half of section 8, Township 17, Range 7 West of the 2nd Meridian. The town limits had moved a half mile farther South. Harvey was postmaster for many years & was the town's first Mayor. On the school board, he served as trustee & secretary. A Justice of the Peace for many years, he was considerate & fair in his judgements, & had been known, where extenuating circumstances entered the case, to pay the fine which he imposed. His life may be summed up this way - he put all into life that he had, & took all the joy out of life that there was in it. It took a long time before they could convince the inhabitants that they were not Indians, but neighbors. Harvey established an implement business on the west side of Desmond Street & had as his partner Mr. Courtland Aggett. Later Mr. Powell became associated with the business. In April, 1979, the Grenfell Chamber of Commerce received an award for being the most active Chamber in the Province representing a population of over 500 & under 2500. The plaque was presented to the President, Ralph Unerrich, during the awards presentations at the 32nd annual meeting of the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce in North Battleford, Saskatchewan. All the stained glass windows in St. Micheal & All Angel's (2nd church to be built in Grenfell), was consecrated by the Bishop of Qu' Appelle on the 25, October, 1885 are memorials installed by pioneer families. The Harvey Coy family is one (1980). Harvey & Mary had eight children, Harvey was sixth born to William & Sarah (Cowperthwaite) Coy. This account is found in the book , 'Grit and Growth, the Story of Grenfell', by Annie I. Yule, 1970 edition, privately published by the Grenfell Historical Committee, pages 38, 42, 46, 58, 59, 126 for some of this biography.
