Hi Linda, thanks so much for your post, sorry i haven't responded sooner. i'm a Realtor and have been very busy lately. i don't get my yahoo mail checked as much as i should....... my McKee's are on my maternal gr.mother's side, she was a Wood and her mother was a McKee, her Thomas B. McKee and Georgie Anna Jones gr.parents married in Shelby Co. in Jan. 1887. my Thomas B. McKee, was born in Miss. in April 1864 according to the one census i find him on being 1900 Shelby Co. TN. i also found his death record in Shelby Co., he died in Memphis Feb. 17, 1909, age 46, of appendicitis but it gives no other info.
the thing is, i've searched and searched for my Thomas B. McKee in Tenn. and Miss. in 1880 & 1870 with absolutely no luck. i've tried to link him with Wes Covey's family with no luck, also any other McKee's in Tenn. and Miss.
i found a Thomas B. McKee in Miss. on the 1870 or 80 census, i don't remember which now and i don't remember the county. i have the info. wrote down somewhere. if memory serves me right, he was single living with his parents but he was too old to be my T.B. McKee. i remember i talked to someone abt. him and couldn't link him with my T.B. McKee. so i will keep looking as i have time, thanks for your input, Kay.
