One of the First Seven Presidents of Seventies [of the L.D.S. (Mormon) Church] from 1837-38... When he was about seventeen years old he removed to Ohio, and located in Ashtabula county. In 1828 he removed to Geauga county, where he joined the Church, being baptized in July, 1832, by Zebedee Coltrin. Shortly afterwards (Feb. 4, 1833) he was ordained an Elder by Sidney Rigdon, and he removed to Kirtland in April, 1834. When the second quorum of Seventy was organized in 1836, he was ordained a member thereof, and at the time of the reorganization of the Seventies, April 6, 1837, he was called to fill the vacancy in the Council caused by the removal of Elder Zebedee Coltrin to the High Priests' quorum. He was ordained under the hands of Sidney Rigdon and Hyrum Smith. At a meeting of the Seventies held at Kirtland, March 6, 1838, the quorum withdrew their fellowship from Bro. Gee for neglect of duty and other causes, but he was never excommunicated from the Church. When Almon W. Babbitt reorganized the Stake in Kirtland, in 1841, Elder Gee was chosen as a member of the High Council at that place, where he remained until 1844, when he removed to Ambrosia, Lee county, Iowa. There he died... as a faithful member of the Church. His remains were interred at Nauvoo. One of the last acts of his life was to call the members of his family around him and exhort them to faithfulness, advising them also to follow the Church wherever it went.
