I am trying to find a person knowledgeable of the Magie family that settled in the Sullivan County, NY area around 1850. I believe the Magies living in this county are related to John McGhie (died as John Megie) who was banished from Scotland in 1685 to New Jersey. He landed at Perth Amboy, NJ in December 1685 and lived most of the rest of his life in Elizabeth, NJ. The descendants of the original John Megie changed the spelling to Magie in the late 1700's.
