15. John3 McGhee (Elizabeth2 Linn, Andrew1)(207) was born in Beech Creek, Clinton Co., PA 1825. John died September 20, 1915 in Beech Creek, Clinton Co., PA, at 90 years of age.

He married Julian Harleman. Julian was born in Flemington, PA 1831. Julian(208) was the daughter of Jesse Harleman and Elizabeth Stams. Julian died 1919 at 88 years of age.

Source 01409:6 indicates that he purchased a lot on Main street in Beech Creek, PA in 1852 and that he is buried in Disciple Cemetery. John McGhee was one of the original officers of Beech Creek Township when it was formed in 1850 and also an officer when it became a borough in 1869. John's community service continued as he was Clinton County auditor from 1890 to 1893. (00853:7,9,90) __________________________Further Research Required There is a reference on page 6 of source 01409 to the Clinton Republican of September 22, 1915. A copy should be obtained.

John McGhee and Julian Harleman had the following children:

child 76 i. Elizabeth4 McGhee(209). She married Nelson Caldwell.(210) (Additional notes for Nelson Caldwell(211)) ____________________Further Research Required According to source 01409:11, she and Nelson married on September 5, 1858; the groom hailed form Lock Haven and the ceremony was performed by Elder L.B. Hyatt. The problem lies with the date, which precedes the known birth years of most of her siblings and would have allowed her mother to be only 27 years of age at the time of Elizabeth's marriage. Both of these facts indicate the year of marriage to be incorrect. There is also a reference to the Clinton Democrat of September 17, 1858.
