Tombstone Tuesday ~ McGee Family

McGee Monument, Oak Hill Cemetery, Lawrence, Douglas Co, Kansas

McGee Monument

Since I have been researching my McGee/McGhee line this week, I thought I would continue with the McGee’s today on Tombstone Tuesday.  Those of you who have been to the old section of the Oak Hill Cemetery in Lawrence, Douglas County, Kansas, should recognize the McGee monument.  I remember that when I was quite young, I was fascinated by this monument, and thought it would be cool if I was related to the people buried there.  Today, I am proud that my 4th great grandparents are among those buried at this monument.

Unfortunately, I do not have very good photos that document this monument, but I am able to share with you the many inscriptions on this monument.
