My Great grandfather was born in Daviess Co. Missouri, on 1-26-1867, I think. I got this information out of family Bible. His father was W.M. GEE & mother Sarah McCarty, I got this off his death cert., but there is no reference to years, or where they were born. I was hoping I could get that information off Charley Gee's birth cert. I'm new to all of this so if anybody can help me connect the dots I would really appreciate it. Thanks for any help or advice.
