Note: Joseph C McGee is listed in the index of the 1840 US Census of Lawrence County Arkansas.There is a marriage record of his marriage to Edith Hensley age 32 in 1842 in Lawrence County.Family lore has it that Joseph migrated from Tennessee to Arkansas.I am unable at this time to document him in Tennessee. While it doesn’t appear that Edith Hensley brought any children into the marriage, it is unclear if Hensley is a maiden name or a married name.In the 1860 US Census Edith McGee, age 48, is listed as the head of the household which would mean Joseph C McGee must of died sometime between 1854 and 1860.Moreover, in that census that is listed a woman, Edith Smith, age 77 who was born in NC as living in that household – I don’t know what the relation is.She is also listed as living the GMD McGee, (George) household in the 1870 census along with Edith McGee.
