Peter McKee has been my brick wall for nearly 25 years, if anyone out there might have come across Peter in their searches, I would really love to hear from you. At one time, I had found that his mother was named Sally, but a swift bolt of lightening took my computer (and a corrupted backup floppy), and I lost the information. It was thought that the father served under a Captian Miegs, when he lost his life in an Indian attack at or near a fort on the Ohio River. Peter had siblings also. Any help would be wonderful & VERY appreciated.
