I am searching for help in finding where my ancestor John McCoy/McCay originated from in Ireland

Journal by Luckycharm65

I have traced my McCoy family tree back to John McCoy/McCay, who lived in Maryland up until 1783. I have a copy of his will and his wife's will. I think John came from Ulster, Ireland and believe he is and Ulster(Scotch Irish). I would appreciate help if you can.

Yes, He was a Cooper and his wife's name was Esther Beaty/Betty -(how it is spelled in her fathers will). Esther's father Walter was a blacksmith and John and Esther named their son Ezekiel Beaty McCoy after another Beaty/Betty family member named Ezekiel. John also had a brother he mentions in his will named Robert, who I have no more information on at this time.
