Looking for assistance with locating records on Emp Magee b. 1839, resided in Covington County (Mount Olive), and Rankin County (Steen Creek) in Mississippi. The Emp Magee Family also has ties to Washington Parish (Bogalusa) and St. Tammany Parish (Covington) in Louisiana. Emp Magee married Lear Magee (b. 1842) in 1860. According to oral family history, Emp Magee was born in Spain and his wife Lear was born in Africa. They were both slaves either in Mississippi or Louisiana. I believe they had more than ten children. I've identified the following children Nellie (b. 1878), Rosa (b. 1880), Sofronia (b. 1886) and twin boys Eliga and Elicious (b. 1890). Emp Magee fought in the Civil War and his sons Eliga and Elicious both served in WWI. I'm interested in any records on this family and Emp's descendants.
