Before people start copying the information and accepting it as fact, we should state again that the eleven brothers story is a tradition, not a fact. I think some of your information comes from Raymond McKee's *Book of McKee*, and shouldn't be taken as fact. The William McKee who died in 1788 was, I think, a son of Robert, not a brother, but in any case this can be checked in G. W. McKee's *McKees of Virginia and Kentucky.* The "Gavin McKee" must come from one of my postings; he was born in 1750 and couldn't be a brother. The McKies were very numerous
in Wigtownshire, Scotland, so it would be difficult or impossible to prove these relationships.
