Ken, My McIlwee family settled in Leadville,Colorado in 1882. They moved there from Shotts,Scotland.They lived in Leadville until at least 1888. Sometime after 1888 they moved to the small town of Crested Butte, Colorado.They were there for most of the 1890s and on the 1900 Census in Crested Butte I have found: Mary McIlwee (head of household) born Nov 1860 John McIlwee 30 years old, wife Mary age 2 daughter Katherine age 3 and a boarded William mcIlwee age 23 Also in the same precinct: Alexander McIlwee age 17 born in Illinois. My McIlwee family left Crested Butte, Colrado in 1904 and came to Scranton, Pennsylvania. Hope this helps, Happy Hunting, Roy McIlwee, Scranton, Pennsylvania.
