I was wondering if any one may know information about the McKee family?
I have managed to find information on my 4 x great grandfather who is William McKee b.1759 and Married in 1793 to Frances Lodge b. 1764. They had 8 children Margaret b.1794, Frances b.1795, John b.1796, Peter b.1799, George b.1801, Jane b.1804, Letitia b.1806 and William b.1808.
I'm trying to find out who William's mother and father are? (I'm guessing William was born in Ireland, but have not found any information to or not to confirm this).I have also come across a William McKee who was born in 1759 in Alleghany, Pennsylvania. (Father Hugh McKee, Mother Mary Nesbitt) This could be my 4 x great grandfather? However William McKee b.1808 is my 3 x great grandfather and was born in Co. Kilkenny Ireland - son of William McKee b.1759. I'm wondering if my 4x great grandfather was born in Pennsylvania, would he of made the trip back to Ireland as a man to marry Frances Lodge and have their children in Ireland? I'm also unsure of where he died?
