I've been studying David McKees line for 15 years, sorry to say, and I have to call you on some of your info.I can go along with you down to wife of David.I have never seen any name given except Margaret ?, Lurgan Twp., Pa. or County Down, No. Ireland.An exception would be Prudy McLeary, lst wife in Ireland.But now you have come up with Elizabeth McRoberts.David's Will clearly states his wife to be Margaret.The list of their children seems to be close, but James, B.1816, cannot be right, since David died in 1795.John was the founder of McKpt, forced to sell his land because his bro-in-law Judge Redick, was unable to follow thru on a financial deal, and John was forced to sell his land and that of his father, who died the same year, 1795, t o pay his debt.And there was no Elizabeth in this family.Mary md. a Peoples,and James md. Jean CunninghamDavid md. Margaret Cunningham, and their kids were David, James, John & Sarah.I am working up to: Who is William? James wife was not named Elizabeth.I don't believe I know who his children were.
I have David's Will; James and mother, Margaret, are Executors.
I was just preparing to write in, asking why we cannot get David, b.1710, narrowed down to one list, and not have him waving in the wind.I have a recent letter, one of several, naming David McKee, b. 1710-d1795, Ireland, as the son of Willam and Mariam Brown McKee, and all the same siblings on both lists.They are all in the Kerrs Creek, Rockbridge, Va. area. They do have a William. Does anyone else want to add some input to this mess?
