Magee vs. McGee
P.S. In my own Magee family, I've found that the spellings Magee and McGee are interchangeable throughout the 18th to 20th centuries. I have one document where both spellings are used referring to the same man!

Francis J. Magee 23601943
Under "edit" I made the link to Francis' father, James F. McGee. The wife, Margaret, listed with him is his 2nd wife. The Will of this James F. McGee is online at He died July 1873 in Wrightsville, York Co. PA. The Will mentions wife Margaret and son Francis J. and daughter Mary Jane Rewalt. In the 1850 census, Wrightsville, James F. is shown with these two children but no wife, so 1st wife must have died (or left) by then.

I have nothing against adding Barr to his name, you also wanted me to remove Sgt. I didn't want to do that. If I had accepted your edit, it would have changed both. All you need to do is send an edit to add Barr!

Thank you for the information. There were a lot of Civil War vets from Perry County. I think I know what they would have thought about flying the Confederate flag.

Just want to verify her last name is Buger not BURGER? Your suggestion states BUGER without the R.

Thanks, Pat
