Tombstone Tuesday - Davis McGee
Davis McGee was born in Jones, Georgia in 1794. He married his first cousin, Mary Sarah McGee, had nine children, and moved to Plantersville, Alabama where he became a successful planter. The 1850 slave schedule shows him owning more than 40 slaves. He also owned and operated a stage coach inn, where travelers stopped for food and lodging and horse traders from Tennessee would gather to sell and swap their stock.
