McBee Family Tree

 

 

McBee Family Tree


I am related to the McBees via my mother, Dollie.   Her parents' names were Roy E. McBee Sr. and Lillian McBee (Hughes).
This family is Appalachian firstly, with pre 18th Century Scottish and Irish roots.

The information provided below is the result of over 20 years of research from my cousin Norman Helfer.   I make no claim that the information provided below is totally accurate, however, as the McBee line is HUGE.
Please also see Danny McBee's genealogy, which ties into mine.

I also have notes taken from listening to my grandmother Lillian's account of our family history.

If you have any information on the McBee family name prior to 1730 that ties into the names below, please email me.
