Another early msg #1746 on Cunningham Forum mentions an early David McKee.Does anyone have any info about him? Portion of msg follows:
7. JOHN CUNNINGHAM (son of 4 Thomas) followed his brother James into Amelia County (VA), purchasing there 2,000 acres “beginning at Robert Baker’s Corner” from Stephen Collins for 115 pounds. The deed was dated 18 November 1746. (Amelia Deeds 473) On 16 March 1749 he sold 304 of these “beginning in Thomas Caldwell’s line …. To Patrick Shilladay’s corner” to James Reed for 30 pounds (Amelia Deeds 192) and 350 more “beginning at Thomas Caldwell’s …. to Robert Baker’s” to David McKee for 35 pounds (Amelia Deeds 195). Mary Cunningham waived her dower rights in both cases. Witnesses included Samuel Cunningham (his eldest son), Thomas Cunningham (whether his father, son or brother is uncertain) and James Cunningham (his brother).
