Please tell me more about your COL Alexander McKee.Where and when was he born, where did he live, who was his wife?
Is he perhaps the same Alexander McKee referenced below:
The "Long Run Massacre" was a major incident in the series of battles in which early settlers in Kentucky fought Indians and their British allies on the western frontier during the Revolutionary War. Long Run is located near Eastwood in Jefferson County, Kentucky. In September 1781 Maj. Bland Ballard discovered Indian signs near Squire Boone's Painted Stone Station, near what is now Shelbyville. He warned the settlers there and at Beargrass Station to move to Lynn Station, which was a more secure area. For unknown reasons, Boone's and several other families delayed moving for two days. When they finally left the station on September 14, 1781, they were set upon at Long Run Creek by a large party of Indians and British soldiers under the command of Capt. Alexander McKee. An estimated seven people were killed by the Indians; only a few escaped.
