John McAfee married Caroline(a) Massie
11 Jan 1840 in Gasconade Co. MO. She
remarried to a George W Brewer in [1851],
therefore, John died before 1851. We
think Caroline McAfee may have been the
mother of Mary Matilda McAfee who married
Elijah Keeling November 1863 in Phelps Co.
MO. Looking for connections and help.

Peter ... We are researching Caroline Ward
who married a Mr. Massie. She was widowed
and married John McAfee. Caroline was
widowed, again, and married George Brewer.
Our Caroline had at least one daughter, Mary
Matilda McAfee, and at least one son with
George Brewer. Caroline and George were
married by 1863, so her John McAfee had to
have died by then. Do you suppose there were
two John McAfee's, perhaps cousins? We have
a recent confirmation for a Caroline Brewer,
mother of Mary Matilda, wife of George Brewer.
Mary's husband, Elijah Keeling, filed for a
disability pension after the CW. Included in
the papers are Depositions from Caroline,
George M. and their son George W., Mary's
half-brother. Appreciate your thoughts.

Hi, Otta Sue
We have a mystery about John McAFEE of Missouri.
The book "The McAfee-Skiles-Liebmann Memorial" by August Liebmann has a John McAFEE married to Caroline MASSIE in 1842. This John died in 1867. There is a chapter on John.

An E-mail note to the McAfee mailing list., is listings from the 1850 and 1860 Census' Gasconade Co., for a John McAfee that more or less agrees with the book, there are some date problems.

I posted a query to the same list about John and the differences.

I have read somewhere that in "History of the Fee Family" Ralph Peterson writes that he does not beleive McAfee-Skiles ...... book is correct.

A gentleman in Arizona has been researching the McAfee's of Missouri.

If you contact me directly at I can send copies of what I have, maybe we can sort this out.
