I am related to the McGehee family that lived in Montgomery County, TN in the early 1800s. My ggggrandmother was Mary McGehee. Supposedly she was born in N. Carolina about 1790 and then her family moved to Tennessee. She married Jesse Pearce about 1809 in Montgomery County, TN. The Pearces then moved to Illinois about 1817 complete with 8 children. Mary died in Illinois.
Her father was either Thomas or William McGehee. I am trying to find out who her family is. There was a William McGehee who fought in the War of 1812 from Tennessee. Do you have any knowledge of such a McGehee family?
