In Reply to: McKee Family Record, Washington Co.,PA by Mary Ann Gwin of 5277

I have information on the McKee family that came from County Down, Ireland. The parents were David McKee (b. abt 1731) and Rebecca Irvine. They stayed in Ireland, and had 8 children. The 4th child was David McKee, born abt. 1763). He came to the US in 1793, with his sister Elizabeth and brother-in-law, John Wallace. He married Jane Means abt 1815 and had one child, David B. McKee. They lived in Newville, Cumberland Co. PA, also Pittsburgh and Turtle Creek, Allegheny Co, PA, on a farm. A brother Joseph (child 6) and another brother George (child 8) came to join him around 1798. Joseph was married to Mary Scouller 29 Dec. 1802 and they had 7 children. He also lived in Newville, and later Big Spring. George was married to Margaret Ball, and later Deborah McKee. The first marriage produced 8 children and the second two more. They first lived in Newville, and then moved to western Pa. Fayette TWP, Allegheny Co to a 400 acre farm. Second wife, Deborah, was a grand-daught of a cousin. She came to the US in l812, with her family, father John McKee, who settled near Logstown, Beaver Co, PA.

The dates aren't right for your listing, but so many of the first names are the same. Wondering if they might be the descendants of some of these brothers.
