S. E. McCoy


S. E. McCOY, superintendent of the Tri-State Traction Company, of Steubenville, Ohio, is a well known citizen and to some extent is a factor in Republican politics in Jefferson County. He was born at Steubenville, in 1869, and is a son of the late James D. McCoy. The father, also a native of Jefferson County, was engaged in the mill business during the greater part of his active life. S. E. McCoy grew to manhood at Steubenville and attended the schools here through boyhood and then learned the cooper's trade, at which he worked for three years and then entered the employ of the Steubenville Street Railway Company and remained through the different changes of owners until 1905, when he came to the Tri-State Traction COmpany, in his present capacity. In his political opinions, Mr. McCoy entertains those advocated by the Republican party and at different times he has served on important political committees both in city and county. In 1889 Mr. McCoy was married to Louise Stuck, of Wheeling, W. Va., and they have four children: Jean Louise, James D., and Eldora and Elmora, twins. Mr. McCoy and wife are members of the Third Presbyterian Church at Steubenville.
