I'm not sure if James McKee had a brother. (Information that I have states that he came alone with a mother and father from Pa. to NC. Shortly thereafter the father died in Mecklenburg County, NC and the mother re-married a Chronicle. James McKee's half-brother was Major William Chronicle of the Battle of Kings Mountain and a hero in the Revolutionary War. James McKee was middle age when he fought in the Revolutionary War. I am sure that the McKee's of North Carolina are all related, cousins, etc. Thanks for your response. Sorry to be so late responding back to you.
