I am a descendant of James Dexter McKee, born in Ontario, Canada, in 1829.James was the son of Marcus and Neoma Chard McKee, both born in New York.James moved to Allegany County, New York in the early 1860's, and then on to Michigan where he died in 1903.
I believe that Marcus may be the son of James McKee, b. 1775 in Hartford Co., Connecticut.In Mrs. W. B. Price's 1924 genealogy of the McKee Family, she stated that James, b. 1775, had a son named "Marquis."Other children named born to James and his wife, Sarah Fox, were Sophia, Ezra, Harriett and Sabina.I have also seen records that show James and Sarah migrated to Jefferson County, New York, where he later died.I have traced some of the Jefferson County McKees to have migrated to Allegany County, New York, specifically, James Rawley McKee's descendants and Ezra McKee.
Does anyone know more about the children of James and Sarah Fox McKee?I am also looking for a death date for James.I'm hoping to find a will or land records that show a tie to my Marcus.Any discussion regarding this line is greatly appreciated.
