I have for years tried to document the McKee's of Rowan county, NC. Robert McKee Sr.born about 1725 in either PA. or VA. shows up living on Swearing Creek area of Rowan county about 1784 or before. My direct ancestor is Theodore McKee who stayed in NC. He had a brother identified as Robert Jr born about 1760 who left Rowan county about the time of his fathers death in 1803.
I believe I have found Robert McKie/McKee living in Wilson county, Tennessee making his will in 1808 Wilson county naming his wife Sarah and friend Duncan Johnson as executors.
Sarah is Sarah Mcoy/McCay d/o James McCay of Rowan county, NC James McCay/McCoy was a neighbor Robert Sr. in Rowan. Another brother Henry McKee also moved for a time in Wilson county and had land joining that of Robert Jr. and was probably there before Robert.
I know there are others reseaching this McKee family in Wilson and I will gladly share with them.
email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I would really like to locate a male descendant if possible. Thanks
