Tombstone of Solomon Obed Magee

1816-1881

Located in Pike County, Mississippi

 

Solomon married first Mary J. "Polly" Ellzey.  They had a daughter Mollie Magee.  Solomon Magee's second wife was Eliza Ginn, daughter of Jeptha Ginn and Penina Magee.  Solomon and Eliza were second cousins.

 

There are two large tombstones, and two small ones in the cemetery. The small ones have the initials J. O. M. inscribed on them. Another one is that of Mollie Magee, wife of John A. Walker, the man for whom the place is known by Varnado family members.  Mary J. "Mollie" Magee, wife of John A. Walker, is Solomon Obed Magee's daughter by his first wife, Mary J. "Polly" Ellzey, daughter of William Ellzey and Ester Sibley. Mollie's tombstone inscription shows she was born on May 27, 1850, and died on July 14, 1912. Her mother died about the time she was born.

 

The fourth tombstone, which is broken in two places with one piece, the top piece, missing, is that of Solomon Obed Magee born on November 3, 1816, and died on April 27, 1881. This was the location of the final resting place of the man known as "Obie" and "Obed", the slave master.

 

The two small tombstones may belong to Solomon and Eliza's children, Jacob Obed Magee, and Jeptha Obed Magee, as the 1860 census shows a Jacob O. in Solomon Obed's household.  The children died young. 

 

Both the 1850 and 1860 slave schedules show S. O. Magee, as he is also

known, owned slaves. The 1860 Pike County Mississippi Slave Schedule shows S. O. owned a total of seventeen slaves, ranging in age from one year to forty-three years. Solomon Magee's family was researched by Willie L. Robinson, a descendant of Solomon Magee. You can read the rest of his research on the Magee family by clicking here.

For Thomas J. Miller, I am not sure if Clara Ginn was his second wife or his first. The author of this book said not to get the older and younger Clara Ginns mixed up.

 

As you can see, Sarah Miller and Samantha Miller were not listed with their brothers.     Paul Knight
