Anyone with any knowledge of this family, please be in touch. "Looked at all the McKees in 1860 in the city of Albany. Found only one with a son James.James is abt. the right age.The father was Patrick McKee(age 30, b. Ire), wife was Amanda(age 30, b. Ire.), job was a coachman. He had children James,John, Thomas and Sarah. In the 1867 and 1872 Albany directory, shows this Patrick , a coachman,was in the city."
"In 1870 the same Patrick(age 40, b. Ire) but with a different wife (Matilda, b. NY) Same job(coachman).Same children, plus more.James(17), John(15), Thomas(13), Sarah(13), Edward(9), Patrick(7), William(4)."
"In 1880, Patrick, age 50 (b. 1830), is in Otsego, Otsego Co. He is a COACHMAN, has many of the children, including another young daughter, possibly Ann. The ages are off on the children, but all of the ones with him except the baby were on the 1870 census.No wife. I really think it's him."
This above listed info was found for me by a very helpful soul from a posting I did, months ago on a website. It pays to post what you know.
Hope to hear back from someone who sees familiar people here.
