I found this here is a small piece of the site but you can go read the whole thing.

Katie became the wife of a man known as Thomas McKee (1800-1844), a descendant of noted frontiersmen Alexander McKee and his son Thomas McKee, who were born in Ireland. (Through several generations, the name "Thomas’ was given or used by the McKees. Alexander’s son Thomas had a son with a Wyandot woman – Charlotte Brown. They named their son named Thomas; he was Mary’s father.) In 1838, Katie and Thomas had a daughter – Mary McKee. Mary was born in her grandfather Quoqua’s cabin on the Huron River. Mary’s native name "Tarema" meant "Carrying-A-Pond" or "Carrying-A-Lake." She belonged to her mother’s clan – the Bear Clan – and was given the nickname, "Turtle."
