Randolph  County,  Indiana

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 few larger stocks of hardware to be found anywhere in the county, and none of better selection.
            He is an only son of 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.
            Mrs. Magee 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.
