Edit Your Page
These are the Descendants of Johann Phillip Emmert of Bavaria/Weurttenburg Germany. These descendant are on my Mother's side - Emmerts, McGees and Crews'.

I also have the descendants of George W. Payne, from Alabama and into Tennessee. These descendants are on my Father's side - Payne/Paine and Hughes.

I also have a considerable amount of information on;

Arthur Crews/Crues, David D. Hughes and Joseph McGee.

Lengthy details on Abraham McGeHee born in Scotland. He was the Father of Joseph McGeHee born in Indian Territory of Georgia. And their insertion into the Cherokee Indians.

Any information, stories, or pictures you have to share would be greatly appreciated.

    Post WWII picture of Mom and Dad. Picture was taken (probably) on Hwy. 43. I say this because there weren't too many paved road at this time in Lawrence Co., Tennessee. (Not sure of the occassion.)

    This is the ONLY picture I have ever seen of George William Payne! He is quite old and probably after the death of his wife Sarah.

    While waiting for Dad to return from WWII, Mom took the occassion to put on Dad's suit. I suppose she felt it would bring him closer to her.

  • Ida Elizabeth McGee and Hettie (in arms) (20 KB)
    This is a picture of Ida Elizabeth McGee-Crews at 40 years of age. The child would have had to have been Mom (Hettie Crews) because Mom told me this picture was taken in 1921 and that is the year Mom was born. She also told me that Grandma Crews was 40 years old in this picture. She was born 07-03-1881.
