In Reply to: Notes from Mackey (Various Spellings) and Allied Families by Mark McKee of 5279

Mark, I always read your message with interest, mostly because your McKee surnames are the same as mine. Because your family is always in the south, So. Car., and mine, always in Pa., mainly Westmorland, even Hempfield Twp. and Allegheny Co.from abour 1750.
I feel pretty certain, to my surprise, that I trace to "David of the Ferry" fame, as my grandmother always said. But right off the bat, I have a wish-washy list of the names of Davids sons.
Sometimes my Samuel is listed, sometimes not, but the others seem always to be his neighbors. Samuel lived in active indian battle area, Hannahstown, and a neighbor of Joseph Brownlee, killed in the massacre. The administrators are always the bros., and Samuel d. in 1780.
About 42. His kids are in Orphan Court papers-mother Margaret, remarried John Veesy about 1785, in Hempfield. Samuel and a John McKee, not heir, bought the farm. It all lines up, but would you have a line that shows Samuel to be one of Davids sons? An article says Sgt.
Samuel rode with Capt. Robert in Revol. and are buried together in McKee cemetery. What do you think, and who is the immigrant in your southern McKees.
I feel certain some of the sons of David, d. 1795, in Allegheny Co., are John Thomas, David, Robert and Saml, all in Hempfield Twp., Pa.
