We have a Family Tree DNA Family Finder match.......
with a person surnamed MAYand with a middle name of WEEKS.
The above match by the person named MAY will be a cousin of some degree with Leon MCKEE who is descended from.....
McKee of (Panola Co MS)/Hardeman Co TN from 1840 from Franklin Co AL 1833-1840ish from Rutherford Co TN 1800-1833 from Mecklenburg Co NC prior to and possibly up to 1804 (with some family members remaining in Mecklenburg area for many years.)
Certainly of the seven children, (four males:Thomas, John, William, Ambrose Jr,) listed in the proven LW&T of Ambrose McKee in 1785 you would expect to find this McKee family at any location............Ambrose Sr is recorded by earlier searchers with several brothers who were in the area.
DNA will be our only avenue of proof for these descendants.
So, even though this is a long ago post and Rebecca's posting history shows no work in a decade, some new searchers may identify with the surname MAY here.Several of the immediate West TN McKee were known to have gone to California in the late 1800s.
I would be pleased to work with those interested in this Family Finder and yDNA search.Linda McKee
