Biography reproduced from page 284 of the History of Kossuth and Humboldt Counties, Iowa published in 1884:
Dr. Franklin McCoy came to Kossuth county in 1857, and commenced the practice of his profession. He was a thoroughly energetic man, and a successful practitioner. Coming to a new country without money, he was compelled to meet many obstacles, but by labor and energy, he overcame them and acquired a fair share of real estate. Early in the year 1866, he left Algona and went to Columbia City, Ind., where he grew into a large practice and became quite wealthy. He died at that place, on the 9th of January, 1874, of heart disease, mourned by a large circle of friends, acquaintances and patients.
