Does anyone know what prompted Capt. Vardry McBee to move to the Alabama/Mississippi area?He is found in the 1840's pensioners census in 1840 at age 102 in Walker Co., AL with Robert McBee. It is purported that he died around age 106.
I have seen postings in various places that he died in Sumner Co., TN or Christian Co., Ky.This appears to not be the case.
I am curious as to why he would have left his wife Hannah in KY.Did she and son Silas go to join him in the 1820's or did they never meet up again?
A "Varnel Magbee" is indexed in 1809 in Madison Co., AL (Mississippi Territory).Silas is still in Hopkins Co., Ky at this time.
I would appreciate anything anyone can contribute to this story as my family seemed to follow Silas and Vardry around.
