Hello Donna, I am quoting you on the following:
......................... I believe you told me you have connected w/David, 1710. I'd like to know how you decided which of the McKee clan you believe David belongs to, as I have always read they came from "the east" so never checked out the Virginia family for a son, Samuel. I find no mention of McK.Port David having one, tho he had been dead years before old David's will.............
You'll have to refresh my memory or point me to the message if I told you my husband, Doug, was related to David. I do not recall ever being of that opinion.
In the same respect, I believe Cathy was always quoting from books and manuscripts when she wrote about all the McKee. She was sharing public domain data about MCKEE to benefit all searchers.................I thank Cathy very much for those contributions and have found them very valuable in my research. I hope she is able to continue someday.................................
What I do have, what I have recently learned, from the results of Y DNA test results is that my husband's Y DNA markers match close enough to an SMGF participant's test results to claim distant blood kin. The data given in my post that we are responding to here and now gives that participant's lineage that he posted himself. I do not know his name, nor do I need to know his name, what matches is the lineage of the long ago ancestors of both of the SMGF particpant and my husband plus a couple of other FTDNA McKee posters (and maybe more I only ran a search for a few of the FTDNA McKee group).
What this does for me, I think, is give me a bridge to the past. If I can learn of siblings or cousins of these ancestors of the SMGF participant then I may learn more of Doug's ancient ancestors in Ireland / Scotland and their descendants who came to America and were my Ambrose McKee's parents or grandparents. This SMGF participant has a portion of the paper trail that I am missing. The more people we can learn about being of this blood line, the more we can progress in today's study. As far as I know the only way to prove this is thru the Y DNA tests on the male McKee.
The link to the GUYER that you mention is interesting as Alexander McKee of Mecklenburg Co NC who left his proven LW&T ca 1798 had a daughter married a GUYER. I have posted the transcript of the will on this board if you look at my posting history.
