The verbal family history is that James Monroe Megee received a calling to preach the gospel while working in the field. He returned home and told his wife, Emeline that he had received the calling but did not believe he could succeed because he couldn't read. So Emeline taught him. I cannot prove it, but I believe the writing in the back of Emeline Hutto Megee's Fourth Grade reader is James Monroe Megee's handwriting during the time he is learning to read.
