My great-grandfather was Ambrose Lafayette Agee born 1869 in Smith, Tennessee (married to Mary Florence Eugenia Wester) they had 14 children but I can only find records for 8 of them, my grandmother Myrtle Marie Agee is one of the missing descendants.
Anyone know about this family?
I traced Ambrose Lafayette Agee back 3 more generations and then got stuck; his father was a Samuel Agee, born 1826 in Smith TN; Samuel's father was Ambrose Agee married to Elizabeth Lusk and Ambrose's father was William Agee born in 1769 in Tennessee... but I can't find anything else.
I am trying to see how my family branches off from Matthieu Agee who migrated from France and settled in Virginia circa 1688-1690. Matthieu Agee was born in 1685, married Ann Gandovin (Godwin) in 1714. From what I can tell he purchased a land patent in Henrico County, Virginia on June 16, 1738. He died in 1761 only 8 years before William Agee was born. But I cannot find a connection between them.
