Isaac McCoy (1784-1846), b. Uniontown, PA; d. Louisville, KY. McCoy was a Baptist missionary to the Native Americans of Indiana, Michigan, and Oklahoma, who advocated for the relocation of eastern tribes to a permanent Indian colony west of the Mississippi. He surveyed, for the federal government, the areas of the present states of Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma, as prospects for new homes in the West for Indian tribes. He established the first Baptist church in the Creek Nation, near Muskogee, and in later life founded and directed the American Indian Mission Association at Louisville. He published the Annual Register of Indian Affairs as a means of promoting the work of the Mission.

"These four Registers of 1835 to 1838 were all that were issued, and are of great historical value. McCoy, who was also a skillful surveyor, provides us precise locations of mission stations, forts, Indian agencies and settlements. In short, McCoy's Annual Registers are a wealth of primary source material to not only students of Christian missions among the Indians, but to any who are interested in Western history and settlement." - Wolever.
