A query for the surname McGee has been posted as part of the Rootsweb Wood County mailing list. The query is in two parts. The links here are to the Rootsweb list posting:
Nina DAVIS writes that she is “looking for information on Catherine MCGEE (nee GARRETT), born abt 1858, died abt 1898.
“The only thing I know for sure regarding her death date is that she died after 1893. Her last child, Granville MCGEE, was born that year. She’s in the 1880 Census in Quitman married to Gus MCGEE.
“What I’m hoping to find/verify are her parents. They may have been Thomas and Hannah GARRETT but I’m not sure. Burial records (it’s early for standardized death records, but you never know), tax rolls, marriage certificates, etc. She had at least two siblings, Thomas and Caroline.
“Any other information on the family would be great as well. Family history says her mother was white and father black, so any racial designation may be of interest.
“More than willing to pay for any copies and postage, but if anyone can just point the way to records, I can schedule a trip down.”
