A Branch of a Tree: A Mcgee Family in History
The author tracks his Scots-Irish roots from the Irish Sea kingdom of Dal Riata in the 500's to McGee's Town (Balmaghie), Scotland in the 900's and on to McGee's, Colorado in the 1880's. He writes of his ancestors as they immigrate to America, participate in the Westward Movement, fight in the Civil War, experience the gold rushes of Colorado, the Great Depression, World War II and more recent events. The impact of these events on one family and its descendents is the story of America. History sings to us from the pages of this book.
