I have been trying to trace my family history but so far I haven't had any luck with the McGee side of my family. My grandfather's name was John Luther McGee and I believe he was born in the 1880s. He was married twice. I do not know the name of his first wife, but the name of his second wife was Laura Belle Trent. John's father's name was Luther McGee and I think his mother's name was Maggie. John and Laura had thirteen children. Laura had three children from a previous marriage, and so did John. Their children's names are:
Helen Hewlitt(I'm not for sure on the spelling)
Cecil Hewlitt
Raymond Hewlitt(died as child)
Nellie McGee
Maggie McGee
Ralph McGee
Edward Luther McGee
Laura Eileen McGee
Bertha Eunice McGee
John McGee
Delmer Paul McGee (my father)
Clinton McGee
Donald McGee

I was told by a family member that John and Laura McGee came to Illinois from Arkansas. If anyone has any information that might be helpful to me, my family and I would appreciate it greatly.

I'm trying to trace my family tree also. My Great Great Grandmother's name was Daisy McGee. Her grandfather's name was John McGee. He was married to Hannah Short from Mississippi. John McGee was Irish and Seminole. I do not know what my Great great grandmother's parents names were. She had a half sister named Lilie Mae, a brother named Will McGee, a brother named Curly or called Curly. I think she had more siblings but I don't know their names. She lived in Hugo,Oklahoma. Please send info if you have any. Thanks

Dear TaShauna,
I just recently checked the message board and found your reply. I can remember family members telling me that we have Indian in our genealogy. I will check with my cousin Wilma on the names you gave me. I will try to reply as quickly as possible.
