Maria McKee, 1800's, Shelby Co., OH

Hi! I am trying to trace the ancestors of Maria McKee Gillespie. I have no b/d dates, but I know she was married on 4/22/1856 to David Kirkwood Gillespie. She must have died in 1877/78, as their last child was born in early '77, and I show David as re-marrying 4/24/1878. David and Maria had 8 children: William H., James, Lee(boy), Annie S., Jennie L., David K., Martha M., and another girl who only lived 8 days.
Interestingly, Maria's husband David was also married once before Maria (this guy got around!). His first wife's name was Martha McKee, and they were married in 1851. I don't know, but I suspect that Martha and Maria were sisters. I know that Martha's father was named John.
Can anyone out there help me with these McKees?
