I hope you find this thread again... I hope this has helped. I have all this information first hand from my own grandma and knew my great grandma and even her sisters. I heard about the Colton family name but I never focused on the McCoys yet.
My Grandma had documents with the Lehouillier name, and also did extensive genealogy in the church.
My Grandma Grover used to tell me this story of how one of her grandfathers brought the pipes over on a ship to Utah, they were the pipes for the first pipe organ for the Mormon Tabernacle choir. She was quite proud of that story.
All of those in Minersville were the settlers of Minersville. It's name was changed to Beaver Utah. But yes they were miners, coal miners actually.
Then along the Banks's line, which is my grandmas mom, her grandfather Banks was an elder and goes very far back in the Mormon church also. Joesph Banks Sr. who's son is Jr and Jr married an Eyre (Charlotte)
Have fun with all the branches- that's a lot of the first hand info I have
*** Alonzo Sr was married more than once,
He also married an Emma Davis
12-31-1834 Sussex, England
And I think they had 5 children, but this isn't my line really, I just had some info extra on him
*** also Jeanette went by Nettie also, (we have a few aunt Netts in our line) so if you find that, it is her. Also her and Alonzo had 3 other children that I know of besides Celicia.
