McCoy is five miles southwest of Clarksville in southern Red River County. It was named for the Jasper McCoy family, who settled on a plantation in the area before the Civil War. The community was reported as having one business during the 1930s. In 1984 McCoy had a community hall and several widely scattered houses. In 1990 and again in 2000 the population was 175.
