Owen States Index
The name M'Ghie was first recorded as MacEthe in Dumfries, Scotland in 1296. Surnames of McGee, McGhee, Magee and McGeehe also share this root.

History suggests the land where they lived was later known as the Parish of Balmaghie in Kirkcudbrightshire, Scotland. This parish was settled  in the ninth century by an Irish chieftain known as M'Ghie. The M'Ghies family held land there for perhaps a thousand years until female only births ended the original line.

In the mid 1600's a number of MacGee families settled on Plantations of Ulster.

Between 1700 and 1775 large numbers of Ulster-Scots poured into America. Ancestors of many McGees came to Colonial America during that period and more arrived in the mid 1800's as they fled the Irish Potato Famine.

So they had a start in Colonial America then and 300 years later we hope to learn where they all are today.

 

 

Most Wanted McGEE

4gfather Patrick Stuart McGee b 1765 (?)
4gmother Mary Speer b 1765 (?)
M about 1786 (?) Place so far unknown
Only known child Elizabeth McGee b 1790 (?)
Elizabeth M Hiram Kelly 1810 in Burke County; they were Methodists so probably in a Methodist Church.
About 1822 both families moved to Habersham County, GA.

Elder McGees listed as dieing 1850 (?) Cherokee County, GA.
NOTE: Cherokee County then was very large.
Elizabeth d 1847 (?). Nothing more known about the McGee family except land records and census records where the McGee's and Kelly's lived close together. One John McGee (perhaps Elizabeth's brother) lived close by in two counties.
