Re: name similarity
I'm also curious. I have an ancestor who has proved quite elusive.
Family tradition says my ggg grandfather was named Megabee. The family says that's how the name is spelled but they also say its spelled just the same as in the bible which is Maccabee. Both are dead-ends.
I've posted messages on every soundex variation on these forums. So far apparently no one recognizes the name. Elijah Megabee? b. late 1790's or early 1800's, location unknown. He married Della Summitt, (also a big mystery) and their daughter, Peggy Megabee, married Jim Baker, Mtn. man. Jim is my gg grandfather.
