McGee is Samuel Nelson and there was a grave a short distance away that was marked "Mrs. S., Wife of Samuel Nelson, Died June 17, 1895, aged 78 years" Does anyone know if there's a connection?

I would appreciate any confirmation or leads to this oral history. My grandfather's brother, Leslie, told us cousins at family reunions in Abilene, never to forget that we are of Scotch/Irish descent. My wild hunch is that Z.
