Please let me know about his parents and grandparents. My husband come from the Thomas McKee/Frances Stone family. Thomas was born 2/31/1760 and died 7/28/1866. Frances was born 1/2/1792 and died 2/8/1863. I don't have anything about the parents of either. NEWS: Thomas and Frances moved from Tennessee to Larissa, TX in 1846. A whole bunch of them did. Both Thomas and Frances are buried in the Larissa, TX cemetery. I have photos of the grave sites and can tell you the location of the cemetery.Some time ago there was a huge McKee reunion. My husband's grandfather,the son of Lutie McKee Watkins, took out an old window shade and starting with Thomas & Frances, he wrote on all the McKee descendents and had everyone fill in their own information. Unfortunately, it was only for fun, in that there are no birth, death, or marriage dates for anyone, also no locations. I have a fairly comprehensive 6 generations on the window shade in my hands here. The handwriting is hard to read where it is in pencil, but Grandpa did most of it in ink and neatly. I'd love to hear from you and know from whom you descended. I wonder who else is working on this family. They had 8 children and 39 grandchildren, so there must be more people with information. If you want to know several generations of cousins, for example, I have it on the McKee window shade here. Here's our connection: Thomas McKee m. Frances Stone Went from Tennessee to Larissa, TX in 1846 He brought a whole bunch of people in the group. One of their sons was Harveywho m. Louisa Orr. Their son Gustavus Adolphus (Dolph) McKee m. Virginia Ewing. Dolph McKee was instrumental in starting and establishing the commercial rose industry around Tyler, TX. If you go to the Rose Museum there, you'll see some info. Dolph & Virginia had Lutie McKee (named after Dolph's brother Luther, whom everyone called Lute) Lutie married a rose field farm hand, John Bennett Watkins. Their son is my father-in-law, Gustav McKee Watkins, born Tehuacana, Texas 10/19/08. My husband, John Bennett is the last of that Watkins line, as we have three daughters. If we had had a son, his name would've been David McKee Watkins, but I never got to use the name. I'd love to know more about the parents, etc of Thomas McKee and Frances Stone.
