     Mary Ann McCoy was born on 8 January 1851 at Pitcairn IslandG.1 She was the daughter of Matthew McCoy and Margaret Christian.1 She died on 19 August 1937 at age 86 at Pitcairn IslandG.1 She was buried on 19 August 1937 at Pitcairn IslandG.1
     She was among the first wave of returnees from Norfolk in 1859. She was
listed as the Pitcairn Church Recorder in 1887.
'She was the oldest
woman living on Pitcairn in 1934. She was then living in a three-room
house whose interior was scrupulously neat and clean. As she rose to
greet me, I realized that she was blind. Her blindness was provocative
of an overwhelming tenderness. She moved with such care and gentle
confidence, her aged and wrinkled face was brushed with so tender a
smile, and her appearance of fragility was so poignant that I felt she
was as delicate and precious as ancient porcelain. She was a short
woman, shortened further by a stoop, with soft hands twisted by age.
Her face was rather large, with prominent cheekbones and with a nose
somewhat wide at the nostrils but saved from coarseness by a high
curving bridge. Her forehead was heavy and had a pronounced slope, but
the rugged character of the brow was softened by delicate white hair. I
couldn't see her eyes, which were concealed by a pair of blue
spectacles, but her voice and her smile of chastened patience
compensated for the veiling of those features.' (Shapiro: The Heritage
of the Bounty).1
