From the Daily Ardmoreite published in Ardmore, Carter County, Oklahoma.
Tuesday, September 7, 1915 Wynnewood New Era (reprinted in the Ardmoreite) Big Family Result of Marriage When BOB MCKEE and MRS. T. J. FLETCHER of Katie were united in marriage two weeks ago, a big family was established Mrs. Fletcher, who is the widow of the late THOMAS J. FLETCHER of Brady, was left with nine children at the death of her husband. Likewise was Mr. McKee left with seven at the death of his wife. By this later marriage, both families are united and the sum total is 18. “The more, the merrier.” So said a wise one and it is true.
This great family is to be congratulated and ought to be remembered.
Some weeks ago, the newspapers were full of stuff about a man over at Hollis suddenly becoming the father of four babies. Mr. McKee can go him one better. He became the father of nine in a manner of two minutes, in addition to the seven he already had.
Mr. McKee is a prosperous and well to do farmer residing in the Brady and Katie country.
