Harry E. Magee
Harry E. Magee
was born in Winchester July 11, 1869, and after taking the regular
common school course entered business in his native town as a hardware
merchant. In this line of trade Mr. Magee has been one of the eminently
successful men of his town and county. He has always kept abreast of the times,
and anything to be had in his line in the larger cities has ever been
accessible to the citizens of Winchester in Mr. Magee's store. There are

Charles E. and Sarah (Edgar) Magee and inherits much of the sagacity and
enterprise of the Buckeye blood from his father, who was born May 6, 1846, in
Zanesville, Ohio. His mother was born in Winchester September 4, 1847. Both are
still living. Mr. Magee was married October 3, 1900, to Sarah Kitura
Wright, a daughter of Hicks Wright, a stock dealer. His father and
grandfather were both in the Civil war. Charles E. Magee, the subject's
father, served in Company F, One Hundred and Thirty-fourth Regiment Indiana
Volunteer Infantry, and later in the Eleventh Regiment Indiana Volunteer
Infantry until the close of the war.
has one sister, Ida, who married John Christopher, a banker and
farmer of Modoc. They have one child, Jean, seventeen years of age.
Besides his hardware business, which he has conducted for twenty-six
years, Harry E. Magee for two years had charge of the Indiana Glass
Works at Dunkirk, Indiana. At the expiration of two years he returned to his
calling of a hardware merchant. He is a Progressive in politics, and his choice
of religious denominations is the Methodist. In the enterprises of politics and
the business interests of the town, Mr. Magee is an ardent participant,
and the reputation of the municipality and county is due in a large measure to
his efforts to enhance it.
