I have new information - Andrew never did come to California with his wife and children - my 3rd great grandmother, Ann Elizabeth McKee, his daughter, and her husband Robert Ray, from Venango Co, PA, came between 1867 (they are in the county census) and 1870 where they appear in the Federal Census in Tulare County, CA.
I have contacted county genealogical societies in western PA but there are so many McKees that we can't find a sure connection. I think our connection with Tittle and Fraeme is key so far. I'm trying to find the death of Andrew McKee, because I'm sure that triggered his wife's migration to California. William Fraeme McKee, son of Elizabeth Tittle and Andrew McKee came to California in 1852 and was an early pioneer and successful businessman in Stockton, CA. His uncle, Jonathon Tittle, Elizabeth's brother, was already in San Joaquin County, CA when he arrived.
Does any of this connect with anything you know? I know tons about their lives here, but almost nothing about their lives and connections in Pennsylvania. I have this nagging feeling, however, that I'm sitting on some key bit of information and don't even know it!
