In Reply to: Re: MCKEE'S/M'KIE'S IN PENNINGHAME, SCOTLAND. by steven edgar of 5279

The source of my work is Margaret Mitchell's book Gone With the Wind. She writes that the O'Hara family was driven out of Scotland at the Battle of the Boyne.

How that connects to the Mckees of Mckeesport PA is through General James O'Hara of Pittsburgh and a fellow named David O Selznick who lived in O'Hara Township Pittsburgh named after General James O'Hara.

I don't think that's a coincidence.

The Edgars are related to the Thompsons. Andrew Carnegie's steel mill in Pittsburgh was called the J Edgar Thompson Works. If you read about Andrew Carnegie in the book titled Carnegie, his family went to church in Scotland were King Robert Bruce was discovered to be buried.

That is a coincidence.
