James W. Magee , Pleasant Valley

In 1888 James made to Henry J. Aldrich a title for securing a promissory note by James payable to the order of Charles A. Stillman,.  AIn 1893 the interrest was not paid, and the land was to be sold at auction in December 1907 in Denver.

James cash-claimed a quarter in 5, 4N 47W in 1890 - next to Charles Riley - also 1890.  A mile north were claims of Willar Britton, Robert Ball, Felix Lyon, Johann Drewes, and Ellis Powell.

Possible - it's odd that the Library of Congress collection doesn't have much on James Magee.

In 1870 Gentry County, Missouri, James W. Magee is 23, Julia T. 24, and Mary A. one month.

In 1880 Stanton County Nebraska, James and Julia McGee are both 33, with Mary Ann 10, Henrika 8, Paulina 6, Birdie 4, Charley W. 2, and Frank two months.
