In Reply to: GEORGE W. MCKEE. c.1823 VA/WV by DBrown of 5277

I'll try again. George W. McKee was my great great grandfather. I have not been able to go any farther back than you at this time. Robert Eldridge, a son of George W., built a log home and raised a large family on property granted (Simms Grant) to a Robert McKee etal 1n 1807 of 1687 acres between Big Sandy River and twelve-pole creek in what is now Wayne Co WV. Robert E. prefered to use the name Eldridge. I looked for the grant in a book of court records but that page was missing. A family of McGhee lives there now but they do not know if they are relatives.

If we can exchang any info please E-mail me at or phone 606 325 2720
