    The second son, William, was a Quaker (member of the Society of Friends). From the 1704 Tax Rolls of VA, we know that he was a land owner by 1696, also that he had to be “investigated” by a committee of Quakers to determine if he was able to support a wife, among other things, so he must have been born no later than about 1675, but probably earlier. The only 2 children we can prove are his older son, James McGehee, who was born about 1695, and married in the Quaker Monthly Meeting, and younger son Samuel, who was born about 1697, and also married in the Quaker Monthly Meeting. We assume that the Catherine McGehee, who married Thomas Butts in 1713, was also William’s child – there was no one else who could have been. Since she married outside the Quakers, there should have been a “disowned” reference to her, but there are no surviving Quaker Monthly Meeting records that survive from 1713.
