About Rev. James McGee, Sr

Rev. James McGee, Sr. was born 1791 in Centre County, PA, and died February 12, 1856. He married Mary Barnhart on April 01, 1813, daughter of John Barnhart and Elizabeth Antes. She was born 1787 in Centre County, PA, and died December 31, 1871. In his early life, James was trained as a blacksmith. He came to Bell Township in 1826, locating at what became known as McGee's Mills. He secured a tract of land on and near the west branch of the Susquehanna River where he erected the first gristmill in this section of the county. He also became involved in general merchandising. He was an active and influential member of the Methodist Protestant Church, to which his wife also belonged, was licensed to exhort and later, to preach. By his blameless upright life, he set a splendid example for his children, and gained the confidence and respect of all who knew him. His faithful wife died in 1872, at the ripe old age of eighty years." (from Commemorative Biographical Records, Pennsylvania, page 655)
