Thanks Betty Jo - the info. was helpful.I found a Elias Mackey 1755-1817 married to Louise Wall 1755-1837 in Greene Co.Tennessee who later moved to Kentucky along the Cumberland River (land grant)and a Matthew was also in the same area and moved to Ky.One wonders if this Elias could be related since Baptist McKee named a son Elias.I would like very much for you to e-mail me the info. you mentioned earlier.Thanks again.If I find more info. I will forward it on to you.Don't know if I mentioned this before to you but Hawkins McKee was the father of my great grandmother Mary Matilda McKee 1862-1945. She taught school in Kentucky and later married John L. Holloway and had two (2) daughters, one being my mother.
