In Reply to: Thomas Mervin McKee bn 1790 in NC by Annette Crafton Corbell of 5277

I wonder who else is working on this family. They had 8 children and 39 grandchildren, so there must be more people with information. If you want to know several generations of cousins, for example, I have it on the McKee window shade here. Here's our connection:
Thomas McKee m. Frances Stone
Went from Tennessee to Larissa, TX in 1846 He brought a whole bunch of people in the group.
One of their sons, Harvey m. Louisa Orr.
Their son Gustavus Adolphus (Dolph) McKee m. Virginia Ewing. Dolph McKee was instrumental in starting and establishing the commercial rose industry around Tyler, TX. If you go to the Rose Museum there, you'll see some info, though his friend and partner is mentioned a great deal as well.
Dolph & Virginia had Lutie McKee (named after Dolph's brother Luther, whom everyone called Lute)
Lutie married a rose field farm hand, John Bennett Watkins.
Their son is my father-in-law, Gustav McKee Watkins, born Tehuacana, Texas 10/19/08. My husband, John Bennett is the last of that Watkins line, as we have three daughters. If we had had a son, his name would've been David McKee Watkins, but I never got to use the name. I'd love to know more about the parents, etc of Thomas McKee and Frances Stone.
