Here are the listings you were interested in. I have added other material I thought might help.
1st mention - "Versailles Supplementary", Records of the Tarrant Funeral Home, p. 395
2nd mention - "Miscellaneous Burial Records", p. 411 (these were presumably taken from the newspaper for the year given)
3rd mention - Oscar R. is also listed in

Another Oscar McCoy (earlier generation), and wife, is

Harriet McCoy, wife of David (1850-1928) There is no listing for David, only for his wife.

Am seeking information on Oscar Reuban McCoy (411) and father, David McCoy (400). Noticed there was an I. McCoy, also number 400. Was wondering if this was child, Ia M. McCoy (b 1870). Noticed a third child, Carrie E (b 1868) was not listed.
Many thanks for your help.
