Hi
I thought you might be interested in this:

""Our Heritage"
By Claude Moore

The old Miller plantation was located on N.C. Highway 11 on the North East River about 10 miles east of Kenansville. This tract of land of 500 acres originally was granted in 1744 to William McKee and he built a frame clapboard house near the river.
McKee was the first sheriff of Duplin and it was at his house that the first county court of Duplin was held. He died in 1751 and his son, Samuel McKee, sold the property to George Miller (born 1728).
Little is known about this George Miller, but the tradition prevailed in the family that his family came to New Bern in 1709 with Baron Von Graffenreid."

This is a William McKee who immigrated to NC during its early colonization. It is possible that your Samuel is connected here. I have been pursuing a Robert McKee and his connections to my Raymor family who may have also come with Von Graffenreid's colony.
