Aft 1880] is found in the 1850 Marshall Co TN, 1860 Bedford Co TN, 1870 Bedford Co TN, and 1880 Marshall Co TN censuses.He is listed with his wife, Eliza Jane Elenor Price [b. 20 May 1821 TN, d. 12 Sep 1887] and his 3 children: 1.) James Monroe McKee [b. 24 Apr 1851 Bedford Co TN, d. 16 Sep 1912 Paris, Lamar Co TX], 2.) Lafayette Mckee [b. 1854 Bedford Co TN], and 3.) Frances McKee [female, b. Aug/Sep 1859, Bedford Co TN]
In your database, James McKee [b. 1815 Mecklenberg Co NC], is a son of John McKee and Agnes (Ramsey) McKee.Have you located any real estate deeds with his signature -- in particular, is there a middle initial?
