Re: eliza ann kessee/nancy kessee
Okay, I think I can give you a little more history, but I'm not sure if this is the same family tree, but my father always told us "No matter how you see your last name (Kessee/Kersee/Kissie/Keesee/Keesee)spelled we are all related, because back then they did not ask us how to spell our name they spelled it how they wanted to or like it sound". So here goes our family tree:
Billy Kessee married Rosie Brownlee; migrated to Louisiana from Texas around the 18th Century. 8 children were born to this union (Aaron, Boag, Jane, Lue, Alex, Dock, Josh, & Manch). Their grandchildren that we know of:
Aaron(8): Dollie, Lee Murray, Francis, Richard, Charley, L.C., Abe, & William.
Alex (unknown, but it has been said that he had 4 children)
Dock(7): Levert(I'm from this line), Anthony, Mandy, Millie, Fannie, Maggie, Jane.
Manch(9): Belzoria, Pearlie, Ennis, McKenzie, Hurne, Josie, Carrie, Rejona, Lincoln.
I hope this gives you more points of reference. Also, the Kessee/Kersee Family Reunion is being held this year in Shreveport, Louisiana July 29th - 31st.
If I can help, please don't hesitate to contact me. Good Luck!
