McGee Origins

The name McGee is from both Scottish and Irish gaelic origins.  The name has many spellings including MacGee, MacGhee, MacGhie, Magee and  earlier variations such as M'Ghie,Macge, Magy, Makge, M'Gye, M'Gey and Machgie.  The Scottish surname is most common in Ulster.  This portion of Ireland was populated by Scottish and English settlers following the Nine Years War commencing in the early 1600's.  These settlements, known as the Plantation of  Ulster, were undertaken by the English monarchy to pacify the most gaelic and difficult to subvert area of Ireland.  The gaelic Irish surname McGee is most common in the counties of Tyrone and Donegal.  These counties are in northwest Ulster.  In the early eighteenth century and continuing until the start of the American Revolution, large numbers of these Scotch-Irish, emigrated to America. The ancestors of many McGees immigrated to America during that period and more arrived during the mid nineteenth century as they fled the Irish Potato Famine.

It is thought that the David McGee ancestorial roots are the Scotch-Irish settlers in Ulster that subsequently immigrated to the United States because of the protestant religion and supported by a family history related by Walter McGee.   Further research is needed to establish the family name origin.  The country of origin for several of David McGee ancestors has been established.  These ancestors immigrated to the American Colonies and the United States from Germany, England or Ireland.  Immigrants are denoted on the family trees with a flag denoting their country of origin.
