Seeking information about Phillip Magee, son of William Magee & Ann Moore, b. @1760 in NC, moved to St. Tammany Parish LA, then to Amite Co. MS sometime before 1809, and died @1825 in Amite Co. MS. Several of their children were married in Amite Co. MS 1808-1827. Phillip married Jerima or Jemima Morris Franklin by 1788, and she died 4/17/1812. I found the following information about his children on line, which shows a total of five children, three girls and two boys. By the 1810 census, three of those daughters and one son had married, however the 1810 census indicates that the family included two sons and two daughters under 21 years of age still living at home. I'm wondering if perhaps Jerima had other children not listed and if perhaps she had died in childbirth, with her last surviving child, not listed below. I have read that Phillip had a second wife, but her name is not known. So far. Phillip and Jerima's known children are: Phereba or Pherba (Phoebe?) Magee b. 1788, Anna Magee b. 3/16/1790, William Magee b. 1792, Dicey Magee b. 1795, Charles Magee b. 1808. Am seeking info or sources for info regarding Phillip and his wives. The reason for my questions: I'm seeking the parents of James P. Magee b. 1811-1812 in MS and who was living in Amite Co. MS in the 1840's. Wondering if this could be his parents and siblings listed above.

I wish to correspond with anyone researching William O'Neal who married M. F. Chapman; Marriage Date 7 May 1839 in Amite County.

My gr-gr-gr grandfather Lawrence Eugene Desaix Anderson died in May of 1845 and his wife Mary J ane Armstrong Anderson died in July of 1845.
