Thanks for the information

by Michael McAtee

I appreciate the information. As near as I can tell my McAtee descendents had several spellings to their surname throughout history (Mackatee, MacAtee, etc.) as they passed from Scotland to Ireland then to America. Following what I can from my grandparents records and oral tradition it would seem that the original pronunciation of our surname was MacGhie. This follows what records I have found on

As with most things of this nature, I'm not 100% certain of the validity, but it all seems to point to the same direction.
