Is there someone who could look up a couple of things for me?I'm trying to loosen a few bricks in one of my brick walls on the McGee family.
First, on the 1850 Federal Census:The family of James McGee, Page 701, Line 16, family 58:What post office or precinct is this family in?
Second, on the same 1850 Census:The family of Angus McGillbury:What post office or precinct is this family in? (James McGee's wife, Susannah, was the next family after the Daniel McGilberry family (son of Angus) on the 1860 census.)
Third:I can find James McGee, Sr. on the 1850 census.His wife and two of his children are on the 1860 census, Prairie Bluff post office, Wilcox County.I am assuming that James, Sr., died sometime between 1850 and 1860.Is there an index or resource to the death records for that time period?I've "visited" the cemetery listings on the genweb site for Wilcox county with no results.I know that James and Susannah's son, James, moved to Clarke County MS around 1855.In 1850, James' "worth" was valued at $4,000.Maybe James, Sr., died around 1855, bequeathing his possessions to his children.OR...Susannah has no "value" on the census, as far as I found, in 1860.Could James have gone bankrupt?
Any kind of help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
