John J. McGee was born December 10, 1864, and died July 3, 1906. He was a son of John J. and Amanda A. McGee. In early life he gave his heart and life into the care, keeping and service of the loving Savior, who had redeemed his soul by his precious blood. He became a member of New Providence Church, of which he continued a consistent member throughout his life. Since beginning in his early business life he has been one of our most prominent and successful agriculturists. On January 2, 1901, he was happily married to Miss Virgilia Witherspoon, one of the most lovable and cultured young women our community has ever passed.
