On Rootsweb's WorldConnect site -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- type in Mcgehee, spouse Elder, several matches come up. Just be careful, some of the people on these sites just copy and don't know if sources are real, or not. But, it does give some material to work on, and people to contact.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
