Sixth Generation


513. John Everette MCBEE was born on 11 October 1860 in Claiborne County, Tennessee. He died on 9 February 1934 at the age of 73 in Claiborne County, Tennessee.

Listed as John J. McBee, age 8 months in the 1860 census - could be that he was born 1859 instead of 1860!

Marriage license issued at Tazewell, Sep 26 1878 to J. E. Mcbee and "N.A. Clley" - apparently Margaret's name McCauley was badly misunderstood.
