Gee Family Researchers and Historians



The following persons are involved in Gee Family history, Gee Family Genealogy, or Gee related restoration projects.


Annette Gee Ford

Annette is the great great granddaughter of Henry Gee (Charles1 , Henry2, James3). She was involved in the restoration of the Henry Gee Family Cemetery in Gadsden County, Florida. She is also currently involved in a restoration of the James Gee and Mary Walker Gee Cemetery in Fayetteville, N.C. See the link for more information on the cemetery restoration. As part of an effort to finance these restoration projects Annette had the book The Gee Family , by W.J. Fletcher reprinted twice and both printings have sold out. At this writing (September 8, 2001) Annette is planning to have an additional 50 volumes printed. The Tuttle Publishing Company, Inc. or Rutland Vermont, the original publisher of the book, has also reprinted the volume. For more information click on the link for The Gee Family above.

Annette has transcribed all of John Henry Gee's court martial trial that resulted from his tenure as prison commandant at Salisbury Confederate Prison in North Carolina. She believes that the trial is the very first is the US to be taken down verbatim. She has published a book entitled The Captive based on this material. Also see John Henry Gee on the GEEnealogy page.

Annette is also gathering material to update the Fletcher book. Anyone who can trace their lineage to Charles and Hannah Gee are encouraged to submit lineage information, family history, etc. to Annette for inclusion in the finished work. If Annette can gather enough information she intends to publish the update.

Bobby Jay Wadsworth

Bobby traces his line (possibly) back to Phillip Gee, who settled near present Chapel Hill in Orange County, North Carolina in the mid 1700s. He can reliably trace his lineage back six generations to Robert Gee b. before 1765; d. 1829 in MO; m. Nancy Hatwood in NC. He has tried to connect his line with the descendants of Charles and Hannah Gee. Due to a recently discovered record that indicates that Phillip Gee was the son of Charles1 and Hannah Gee's son Robert, he may have established that link. He has accumulated information on apparently unrelated Gees in Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma.

Bobby is interested in locating other descendants of Robert Gee in order to compare notes and exchange information. His line settled in Grundy, Callaway, and Macon Counties in Missouri. The children of Robert Gee and Nancy Hatwood are as follows:

  1. William Gee, b. circa 1794 in KY or NC; d. Sep. 18, 1855 in Pope Co., AR.
  2. John Gee, b. circa 1795 in KY or NC; d. circa 1867 in Lamar Co. TX.
  3. Thomas Gee, b. circa 1795 in NC; d. Mar. 1866 in Macon City, MO.
  4. (Male) Gee, b. 1794/1800 in KY.
  5. Morris Gee, b. circa 1800 in Lincoln Co., KY; d. Jun 24, 1862 in Floris, IA.
  6. (MALE) Gee, b. 1800/1810 in Lincoln Co., KY.
  7. (FEMALE) Gee, b. 1800/1810 in Lincoln Co., KY.
  8. Aaron Gee, b. circa 1806 in Lincoln Co., KY; d. 1874 near Shamrock, Callaway Co., MO.
  9. Moses Gee, b. circa 1806 in Lincoln Co., KY; d. 1857 in Lawrence Co., AR.
  10. (FEMALE) Gee, b. 1800/1810 in Lincoln Co., KY.
  11. Lucinda (Cinderella) Gee, b. circa 1812 in TN, Last known residence, Newton Co., AR.
  12. Rhoda Gee, b. Feb. 10, 1814 in TN; d. Aug. 17, 1872 near Bethlehem, MO.
  13. Henry (Sandy) Harrison Gee, b. after 1814.

Bobby has developed a web page with extensive descendancy information on Robert Gee Jr.

Debra L. Demeester

Debra traces her lineage back to Charles and Hannah Gee through Charles and Bridget Gee whose son William Gee married Tabitha Ingram. Their daughter Martha (Patsy) Gee married William Porter who is Debra's great great great great grandfather.

The link between the Gee family and the Porter family is an area of interest for Debra as she is collecting research to publish on the Porter family. Of particular interest to Debra is the fact that three of William and Tabitha's children married children of Joseph and Elizabeth Porter of Madison County, VA. These three Gee's are known but according to information discovered by Debra, a Hannah Gee married a child of Joseph and Elizabeth. The ancestry of this Hannah Gee is unknown.

Judy Wallis White

Judy is descended from William and Mary Ann Markham Gee who immigrated from England to London, Ontario, Canada in 1847. She has built a database with members of this family and she has recently published a book on this branch of the Gee family.

The book "Gee Family Genealogy" includes at least ten generations of Gee's starting with Daniel and Eleanor Robinson Gee of Sawston, Cambridgeshire, England in 1720. It follows Grandsons, Jeremiah and William Gee to Canada in 1847 then traces the families of Jeremiah in Canada and William in the United States to present date. The entire passenger list of the "Ship Westminster" is provided for those who are searching for other connections to this branch Gee family. This is the ship on which William and Mary made the Atlantic crossing in 1847.

A family group sheet is provided for each family member from Daniel to the present generation. Each family section contains maps, histories of villages and towns in which that family resided, wills, deeds, family stories, pictures old and new and original poetry.

Each family is divided by a colored pedigree chart showing that families relationship to the original Daniel Gee from England. In some families this will only go back to Jeremiah or William due to the number of generations.

The Gee Family Story is presented as passed down for many generations. Facts presented in the book, dispute much of the information and will show this is just a story. The story was added to the book because to many this is the family history and in many ways it does contain some factual information. There are other stories told by family members about parents, aunts, uncles, etc., as they remember their family member. The author had the pleasure of sitting down with many of these family matriarchs (75-89) and recording them telling stories of family members as they remember them.

The "Gee Family Genealogy" as of May 25, 1998 contained 3,063 individuals and 1,100 families. It is 500+ pages, spiral bound with a clear plastic front and back cover. The finished product went to the printer on June 18, 1998. The cost is $45.00. Contact Judy for ordering information.

Judy also maintains a web site with information on her Gee family lineage and connected families at:

http://www.itsjudy.com

In addition to the web side Judy maintains several Roots Web Gen Connect boards including Gee, Wallis, Fifield, Demaray/Demarest, Harkness, Layton/Leighton, Ida County Iowa, Aitkin County Minnesota, and Pipestone County Minnesota. She also is Coordinator and Webmaster of Roots Web Mail lists for all the names listed above. To subscribe to any of these lists go to Judy's web page.
