Fourth Generation

76. Elizabeth MCBEE was born in 1807.36 She died before 1860 at the age of 53 in McNairy County, Tennessee.

The birth entry for Elizabeth is at the bottom of the page and part is torn off. She was born on a Wednesday, the 6th, in 1807. The month is missing.

The family Bible also lists the death of Elizabeth McBee, daughter of Samuel and Ann. It does not give a specific date and the year is extremely difficult to read, although it might be 1850. The handwriting is very bad for this entry and it is the last on that particular page. It follows the entry for her brother James H. McBee who died in 1853.

Elizabeth was counted in the 1850 census.
