Cathy, Thanks so much for all those wonderful posts and the information about the McKee.
While reading the Foreword of "CHRONICLES OF THE SCOTCH-IRISH SETTLEMENT IN VIRGINIA" BY LYMAN CHALKLEY I noted the following as part of the first paragraph of the Foreword:
"In the year 1745, all that portion of the Colony of Virginia .................was named Augusta. ........................For about twelve years the County Court of Augusta was the only Court and repository of records within that district. ...........Its original constitution embraced all Virginia west of the Blue Ridge ........the whole of the present state of West VA;A PORTION OF THE PRESENT WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA, INCLUDING PITTSBURG, which was, at times, the seat of the County Court: and the lands on the water of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers."end of quoted excerpt
My questions:Do you know ifthe well-known Col Alexander McKee who remained loyal to the British was active in the Augusta County VA area at any time?Do you know of any VA records that record his PA activities?Same question for his father, Thomas McKee,is he known to have spent time in Augusta Co VA area?Where would the official court records of their activities in land and tithes be recorded if you know?Thanks for any help here.
