Pvt Samuel H McGee

2 June 2019

Private Samuel Houston McGee enlisted in Company C of the First Texas Infantry in April 1862, was wounded and captured at Sharpsburg in September and home on furlough by November. He returned to duty and was discharged in July 1864. He later moved to the Indian Territory (now part of Oklahoma) where he operated a mill and gin and founded the town of McGee (1891; now Stratford, OK).

His heavily retouched photograph here was contributed to his Findagrave memorial by Stanley A. Hutson.
