The following deed in Blount Co., TN, seems to indicate some type of relationship between Barclay Mcghee & John Means, i am researching the "Means" family of Blount Co., TN & Mecklenburg Co., NC...would like any help that might answer if there was a connection between the two families......
On 24 February 1809 Barclay MCGHEE signed a deed to Joseph WEAR in Blount County. The deed states: "Know all men by these presents that I ... do bind myself, to make a deed of conveyance to Joseph Wear...for 23 acres out of the tract of land claimed by me under John MEANS agreeable to lines as run by John WILKINSON...as soon after the Grant is obtained as it conveniently can be done." Signed by B. McGhee and witnessed by John LOWERY, the deed was registered February 3, 1823.
