This info is from Addie Harris.
I have no proven information that Patterson was the maiden name
of Jane McGehee. All I have is handed down by family members.
In the 1850 Federal Census of Lawrence Co. Mo., there is an
Elijah McGuhe age 55 b Tenn. Sarah age 53 born in Va. Asa 18 born in
Tenn and Caroll 6 born in Tenn both are listed as males.
I have it that Sarah was the daughter of Asa and Rachel(Lane)
Pennington. I also have that Elijah and Sarah had a daughter Luyza
who married Samuel Underwood.
In the 1850 census, there is Samuel Underwood 33 born in Tenn,
Louisa 21 born in Tenn. Sarah J. 9 born in Tenn, William C. 5 born
in Tenn, Jonah 4 born in Mo. and Nancy E. 1 born in Mo. This pretty
well says they came to Mo in '45 or'46.
I have another Lawrence Co history that has a lot of early
marriages and see one for Marion McGehee to Mary E. Boles. They were
married by Jonthan Hunt J.P. on December 11, 1854. There are
marriages from 1845 to 1854. There are several Penningtons and
McGehees marriages listed.
Hope this helps you. Addie
