Our lines are so similar, time and place,I have to write to see if you have a Samuel in your line. My ancestor, Samel McKee, died in Westmorland Co, in 1780. One person said she read he was in the Revolution (possibly Indian War).
He was young enough to leave minor children.
I have seen the court papers for "Support for Minors" The guardians were Robert and David McKee. His widow was Margret, who, in 1785, mard. John Vessy-Vasy of Westmor. My McKees intermarried with the Veasys and several Pierces.
The children of Sam and Marg. were: Samuel Jr who mard. Nancy McConnel, (whom I believe are the parents of my James McK. b. 1803.) Mary Lyons, eliza. Pierce, Margaret Patterson, Sarah Robison, Agnes "Nancy" NcConnel, Robert mard. a Martha and David. Some of them moved to Indiana Co.
All I know of my James starts when he marr'd. Margaret Pierce in 1830, Armstrong Co. His sister, Sarah, mard. Margarets bro., Joseph Pierce, and record shows her to be the dtr. of Saml. McKee, Westmor. I have some good records of Peter McKee and his family, who came to America from Scotland, about 1790, and settled in neighboring
Washington Co. The boys were sometimes in West. Co. I've decided they are not my line.
They have a James just a year off on birth, but they do not marry into the Veasy-Pierce families, and I know my James did. I don't know how to find land records on line. Any suggestions? Do you have an extra Sam anyplace? Thanks, Donna
