I'm not sure I can be of help to you, but I am a descendant of John Mason and Elizabeth Gee. That John Mason's father was Major John Mason 1717-1785. His father was John Mason, 1693-1755; and his father was James Mason 1671-1702. All were in the area of Surry and Sussex Counties, Virginia, until John Raines Mason's son, Nathaniel Cargill Mason came to Louisiana. Nathaniel C.'s wife was Katherine Kisiah McMicken, and their son, my 2nd great grandfather was Capt. John Randolph Mason.
