I purchased the book at Quintin Publications on the internet. I also have "The House Of Carr" written by W. L. Watson. I got it there, also. I also got from there "The Carr Family Records" written by Edison I. Carr. I also am descended from two of William McGeHee and Mary Carr's sons. I also purchased from there "Dejarnette And Allied Families in America (1699-1954)" written by Earl C. and May M. Frost. They also have quite a bit about McGeHee genealogy in them. If I can, I'll try and look some of it up for you.

I also forgot to mention that I have the book "History Of Livingston Parish, Louisiana" compiled and edited by The History Book Committee Of Edward Livingston Historical Association of Livingston, Louisiana. It was written in 1986, and I purchased it from them. I don't know if they have any more or not. But there are a lot of McGeHees in it.

I actually did some looking last night and found it digitally. I can't download it unless I am with a college, but we can still all view the entire book.
