McGEE, DAVID "Died at his residence in this county, on Friday the 7th inst., aged 94 years and 15 days. He served in the latter part of the Revolutionary War, and was one of the early settlers in Tennessee, whence he removed to this county in 1817, and has resided here ever since. Thus rapidly is passing away that noble band of patriots, who achieved our independence against such fearful odds, and amid such dreadful privations. The widow whom he leaves behind to mourn his death was his sixth wife. He lies buried by the side of three of his wives. Peace be to his ashes. Communicated."—Tuscaloosa Monitor, August 27; 1857.
