McKee's County Down, Northern Ireland
Posted by: Marjorie Munroe (ID *****8380) Date: January 27, 2007 at 16:40:42

Hello
I am researching my McKee family history.
My Mother's parents were both born in Northern Ireland. My Grandma Molly (Mary Elizabeth Mullan) was born in Belfast about 1908 and my Grandpa William James McKee was born in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. My Grandpa and Grandma McKee were both long gone before I was born.
They both moved to Windsor, Ontario, Canada at different times and married in Detroit, Michigan, USA, but lived in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

I know that my Grandpa's father was James William McKee born Born: October 30, 1862 in Bangor and Died: May 23, 1919.
James' wife was Jane McGowan McKee born Oct 25, 1866
Birthplace: Holywood, County Down, Northern Ireland and Died: July 4, 1934. Here parents were Hugh McGowan & Mary Agnew McGowan of County Down, NI.
James and Jane had four boys, My Grandpa William James (Bill), John Wesley (Wesley), and twins Marshall & George. My Grandpa and Wesley's family all lived in Canada, but the twins stayed in Bangor. And they relatives mainly live there now.

The above James William McKee's parents were:
John McKee
Born to: William McKee & Agnes McKee
Born: 1835
Birthplace: Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland
Died: July 24, 1920 at the age of 85 years

Parents Of: John, James, Margaret More?????????

Don't know if John remarried in New Zealand and who raised the kids once he left??????????

The above John's parents:

Parnets:???????????

If anyone could help me or tell me how to find any further information on these McKee's or MacGowan's or Agnew's I would really appreciate it. I have no idea how to find out more information about the family or how to find any further information about the MacGowan family. I would love to find any living relatives too, since I am also putting together the genetic history for these families.
Thank you
