I don't know if there is any connection but my great grandfather was named George Hubbard McKee, the info I have says he was born 5/27/1877 in IA. He married Mary Tryphena Eaton. She was born 9/14/1884 in IA. I don't know if my grandmother was the first McKee in our branch to come to Cal or if her parents brought her out here. She did have sisters and brother but I don't know anymore.
