In Reply to: Thomas Jefferson McKee, son of Wm McKee and Mary McHenry McKee by linda mckee of 5279

A few lines from the cover description of the collection of letters mentioned in the post I am answering here:

June 1824, Thomas J. McKee, Lawrence Co Ala., to his brother, John, his hard circumstances, very critical of John's treatment of him, regret that he moved to Alabama.

July 18, 1842, Thomas J. McKee, Shelby Co TX, to his sister, Nancy, death of his wife, his situation in Texas.

Jan 14 1851, Thomas J. McKee, his career in Texas, including service in the army, congress, and constitutional convention of Texas, his fortunes and misfortunes.

Dec 7 1855, Death of Thomas J. McKee, and letters from his family in Texas, his daughter Harriet, and her husband Thomas L. NEVILLE.

Sept 24 1856, his widow Susan (correspondence)(a 2nd wife, beginning description of letters says 1st wife name not given)

Further description of contents of letters that, without doubt, show Thomas Jefferson McKee and Archibald McKee were TWO different people:

April 30 1856, Archibald McKee, Goshen, Tenn (correspondence)

June 17 1857 Archibald McKee Jr. (correspondence)

Sept 27, Oct 11, 1858 Jan 26 and July 1 1859, (correspondence) Archibald and Ethiel McKee

FURTHER INTERESTING IS:

Brother JAMES MCKEE correspondence:

Jan 18 1846, James McKee, from HENDERSON COUNTY, telling of the many hogs and cattle from Tennessee being driven to market

March 3 1846, (Brother) ELI MCKEE in financial difficulties, wants to sell slave to John.

Many more excerpts are in the cover description of the contents of these letters which are available in the John McKee Sharpe Papers #3592, 1793-1954. 800 items in 32 folders. UNC at Chapel Hill.
