As of yet no one knows the name of Lynn McGhee's parents.I have done some research on the Scottish side of things and the McGhee clan fought in the battle of Culloden on the side of Scotland in 1746.So the timing of his birth aprox 15-20 yrs after the battle(not sure if anyone know his birthdate) leads me to believe that Lynn's father was amongst the highlanders exiled from Scotland following the battle in what was called The Highland Clearances.Don't know anything about what clan we are a part of either on the Native side.Lynn McGhee is my great-great-great-great-great grandfather.
