Sorry to sound as if I wanted you to do more - actually what you have posted is the best McKee information anyone has put online on any of these message boards.
What I meant to imply regards earlier researchers who have assumed their lineage based on other people's work and those lineage have been passed on and on and even when proven to be mistaken remain unchanged.By the time later researchers, or hunters such as myself, arrive on the scene it is as though all the available McKee have been "taken" and you are an alien and are silly to think you might be kin to the early arrivals.It is somewhat of a closed society where their research is set in stone and not open to being checked out by newcomers.Seems that when these folks found a McKee named John, for instance, they just assumed this was their John even though no proof or documentation was to be had.When later court records and church records are extracted and turn up six men named John, for instance,most of these early online histories remain uncorrecteed.Folks seem to get very defensive when any query is made on "their" family.
This is very understandable for research done prior to the internet.
And is especially true of pre-1750 folks.I am only interested in seeing as much correct data posted as possible.As the official county court records and early church records are extracted and made public and there are more and more men named John McKee, for instance,it seems only right that old records should be corrected in the interest of more folks finding their kinfolk.Seems to me that is what genealogy is all about - should not be a closed society.Seems folks should want their correct greatgrandfather, for instance,no matter how many changes you might have to make to your older records.Not every John McKee was able to fight in the American Revolution even though he might have been of the age that one would assume he did so.
I sure hope I haven't offended you - if so, sorry.
Please keep posting all that marvelous information anyway.Thanks.Linda
