  • Notes 
    • In the early records for the Mount Moriah PBC church, Polly Leach, Elihu Magee, and Statia Magee show up...years later (1840's), Elihu and Polly Magee ask for letters of dismissal (this is when they moved to Alabama).

      In 1850, Elihu and family had returned to LCT.

      By the 1870 census, Charles and Martha Ann had married, leaving only Bettie, Willie, and Elihu at home, and Polly was listed as ?keeping house.? It is assumed that in the intervening time, middle sister California died, although no record of this is known to exist.

      After 1870, Polly shows up in Bedford Co., TN living with the widowed son, Charles H. (1880 census). Sister Martha had probably died in late 1879. We do not know when/how Bettie died.

      In 1883, Polly McGee is BACK at Mount Moriah. Willis, Elihu ("Uncle Lile"), etc. still lived in LCT. Charles disappears after the 1880 census, as did Bettie. Martha's husband has seemingly remarried.

      On 14 June 1892, a "Mollie" McGee, aged 72, was buried in the Colter Cemetery, near Belleville, LCT. As some of Uncle Lile?s children were buried here, it seems quite possible the Mollie is Polly, Uncle Lile?s mother and widow of Elihu.
