In trying to connect McKee families in Pulaski Co KY, I stumbled upon this Mackey website:
http://lewis187.home.mchsi.com/Wilkinson/Mackey.htm
This will take you to Elias Mackey of Knox Co KY which starts with Elias Mackey of Scotland, married Louise Wall, was in Washington Co VA, then Greene Co TN before coming to KY. Elias served in the Revolutionary War. This is a great site and I hope it helps someone. It gave me a teensy clue about a Matthew McKee that I knew was in 1810 Knox Census and whose descendants were later in Whitley, Pulaski and Casey Counties KY. A Matthew McKey (note spelling) was in a land transaction with Potter and Wilkerson (who came from Greene TN to Knox KY with Mackeys)in 1805 in Knox County. Could there have been a name change?
There is lots of info here. At the bottom of the page click on "Index" which will take you to the site start where you can search alphabetically. The "About me" click will take you to info about the site. "home" takes you nowhere.
