I know that the John McKee who was born in MS in 1867 is not your ancestor. He moved to Texas as a young man, married and had children. As far as I can determine at this time, he, his wife and children remained in east Texas and died there. The John McKee (father of the above named John McKee and my great-grandmother, Love DeAnn McKee Childers)who was born in SC about 1825, is the one for whom I am serarching. From what I know now, it appears that he moved to MS about 1860 as the older children were born in SC and the younger children were born in MS. Sorry I can't help.
