First let me say I know next to nothing about this family so am just offering a piece of information that I found this evening that raised some questions in my mind about what you said about Hannah and Capt. Vardry McBee and his being on the 1840 Pensions list.

Spartanburg Co. SC, Deed Book S, p. 185-186
Dec 25, 1823 Hannah McBee (Monroe Co. MS) to son Vardry McBee (Lincoln Co. NC); pwoer of attorney to recover her dower right to land known as Lime Kiln tract on waters of Thickety Cr and to land in South Carolina as WIDOW of Vardry McBee Sr (late of Spartanburg) deceased. Witness Bartlett Sims, Silas L. McBee, and John Roberts. Signed Hannah McBee. Wit. oath Jan 15, 1824 John Roberts to James Ed Henry. Recorded Jan 15, 1824.

Was this the same Hannah and the same Capt. Vardry McBee? Another Hannah and Vardry McBee Sr.?

Or was the Vardry McBee age 102 in Walker Co. AL an entirely different man--obviously a man who was deceased in 1823 can't be resurrected and living in 1840.

Gail (researching Turners and trying to unravel the mystery of the "three orphaned Turner children" in the stories about their being raised by Uncles Silas McBee and Vardry McBee Jr.)
