I know this might be a long shot but I keep coming across your postings as they have the same names as my McKees. I am researching Mc Kees in Belfast. I have only got back as far as Alexander Mc Kee, who family legend says was a sculptor on the Albert Clock in Belfast. He would have been born around 1830 - but that is very much a guess. He had a son called Alexander who married Mabel Eleanor Beattie and they had 8 children - Louis (my grandfather), Isabel, Mary, Alexander, David, William & James. The family belonged to Duncairn Presbyterian church.
I know it is a bit of a long shot but do any of these names ring a bell with you?
