Nehemiah Coye or Coy (which at first was the more common spelling), was of Scotch ancestry, and settled in Windham county, Connecticut, probably as early as 1735. The “History of Union” says he came from Scotland, but it is practically certain that he came from Scotch ancestry that had been for a few generations, at least, in the north of Ireland.
