Magee Family Cemetery

MAGEE FAMILY CEMETERY

By George E. Wolf Jr./2007

Located between two homes at 14927 and 14931 Wainsfield, (off of Tenderen) at the corner of Padstow, Channelview,Texas.

Dates 1860's to 1950's. Part of the old J. P. Magee Plantation, one acre with about 10 graves. James Purdy Magee built and owned a free ferry at Magee Crossing located on Greens Bayou around 1850. Magee owned property on both sides of the bayou.

I could locate maybe 7 graves at this time. This cemetery is in very bad shape, needs help.
