G. W. McGEE is descended from one of the early pioneer families of this county. He was born in this precinct on August 9, 1828, and is a son of William and Sarah (Franklin) McGee. The father was born in Sumner County, Tenn.; his father having come from Ireland in 1787, and settled in that county. In 1804 the latter came to this county, and settling in this precinct he entered 800 acres. He lived here until about 1840. William continued to make his home in this county. In 1810 he was married to Miss Franklin, who was a daughter of Absalom Franklin, who came to this county in about 1800. Mr. McGee settled on the farm now owned by subject, where he died on April 9, 1835. His wife (our subject’s mother), was born in Franklin County, Ga., in August, 1789, and died in this county on January 22, 1871. To her were born ten children, of whom our subject is the youngest. Of this number but two are living – Mrs. Mary Ann Miles, in Johnson County, Ill.; and George W., our subject. The latter’s education was but limited, and was received in this county. He assisted on the home farm until he became of age, and then took charge of it himself. Here he has since resided. Mr. McGee was married on January 15, 1857, to Miss Elizabeth Miles, a daughter of John H. and Mary A. (Folks) Miles, natives of Montgomery County, Tenn. Eight children have blessed this union, of whom seven are now living, viz.” Tandy D., Samuel B., Stonewall J., Margaret J., James L., John B. and Joseph J.
