McKee Family Genealogy Forum
Thanks ever so much for the quick response. One interesting bit of information that I have unearthed, so to speak, is that Captain William Thweatt, William Gilliam, Thomas Gilliam and Harrison Gilliam, William Thweatt's brothers-in-law, all came to Tennessee together between 1805 and 1808. Captain William Thweatt and Harrison Gilliam settled in what was Rutherford County at the time. William and Thomas Gilliam settled in Maury County, Tennessee. It was Captain William Thweatt's son William Giles Thweatt, who married Sophia McKee. I think it is possible that the missing McKee link may be someone else who made that trek with the Thweatt/Gilliam party to Tennessee. When I solve this riddle I will let you know. I am working on it with Scott Bowen who is a distant cousin of mine.
