Am looking for information about my great-great grandfather, James McKee.
He was born in Ireland about 1827, and died in New York.He was an attorney, admitted to the bar on 21 May 1863 according to NY Municipal Archives.
He is seen on the 1880 census with his daughter, who was married to my great-grandfather (who is also present).Other census records do not match with ages of he and his wife.Since death certificates were not required until about 1897-1901, we surmise he died btween the 1880 census, and the time death certificates were instituted 17 yrs later.
1880 census, NY, NY James McKee, 53, b Ireland, "practices law" Margaret McKee 50 Edith V McKee, 14 Frank H Scraggs 23 Margaret Scraggs 18
We have no idea what happened to Edith.There are some census records in 1870 and 1860 which are not exact matches with names and ages (the 1870 one has James as 45 yrs old and Margaret as 45.
