Shelley,

I googled "Milton Keith McKee" and got one hit which looks like it may be useful in finding information about Milton Keith McKee, Sr., and his relatives. The obituary for Eula Mae McKee Saunders, which I have included below, says that she was preceded in death by a brother Milton Keith McKee. Besides her husband and children, she was also survived by sisters and a brother who would also be siblings of Milton Keith McKee. I would phone them and ask:

sisters -
Hazel Saunders, Climax Springs,
Edith (George) Kartsonis, Lee's Summit,
Mary Ellen (Lawrence) Tripp, Beloit, Kansas,
Vera Jean (Sterling) Stage, O'Fallon;
brother -
Murry Neal (Ina May) McKee, Fall Branch, Tennessee;
sister-in-law -
Betty McKee, Beloit, Kansas;

Climax Springs, Lee's Summit, and O'Fallon are in Missouri. You should be able to get telephone numbers for these people. If not, let me know and I will try.
