History of Gee’s Bend
A plantation named Gee's Bend was established in the very early 1800's on a huge bend in the Alabama River directly across the river from the present location of Camden, Alabama. The owner and creator of this prosperous plantation was Joseph Gee born March 12, 1763 in Sussex County, VA eldest son of Charles Gee and his second wife Elizabeth Dobie who later moved to Halifax, North Carolina. Joseph went to Wilcox County, AL where he built the plantation and he died at Mobile on Dec, 1, 1824. He was a bachelor and left an estate estimated at from $40,000 to $60,000 which obviously must have included the plantation, Gee's Bend. His nephews Sterling H. Gee and Charles J. Gee offered to probate an alleged verbal will by which the deceased bequeathed all his property exclusively to the two nephews. The excluded heirs contested this arrangement in a chancery court suit so there is a court record of this whole sordid affair. The result was that the property was divided among Joseph's nieces and nephews.
