Mack and Agnes were my husband's parents. Agnes's family is a whole book in itself and I want to write about it in a separate post(s). There's a lot to tell.
Mack McGee was the oldest son of Ocie and Lula Kirkpatrick. He was born on March 11, 1914 in Shelby County, Alabama. I don't know much about his growing up; I don't believe he had a complete education and was certainly working on the family farm when he was quite young, possibly taking over responsibility for the family when his father left the family (don't know this story too well).
