Family of John McKee - Georgia
Posted by: Mark McKee (ID *****0169) Date: April 01, 2007 at 04:41:27
  of 5279

If anyone is rclated to this family I would like to hear from you. I'm cut and pasting a portion of a family file that Jim McKee had prepared.

Mark McKee

The 1820 federal census showed the following households in Putnam County, GA:

McKee, John               male              age 26-45       head                            
McKee, unknown       female              age 26-45       probable wife
McKee, unknown       male              to age 10       probably son
McKee, unknown       male              to age 10       probably son

This female age 26-45 was possibly the first wife of John McKee. She probably died before 1822 when John McKee married Eliza Mercer Askew. The two males were probably sons of John McKee by his first wife.
