I have some interesting material about Lt. Hugh McKee. He was a third cousin to my grandfather. Major George Wilson McKee, who compiled the genealogy called "The McKees of Virginia and Kentucky" was Hugh's brother. Hugh was never married, and so has no descendants. George and Hugh were the sons of Col. William R. McKee, killed at the Battle of Buena Vista, Mexican War. He was a classmate of Robert E. Lee at West Point. Hugh was an Annapolis graduate.
