Notes: I know Minnie died,
There is some confusing stuff going on here with these seemingly senseless censuses and birth records void of information. Namely, names. Lets go on to 1910 and see what happens. (Harry T and James W don't sound anything alike, but their birthdays are the same and now Harry T is gone and James W. (which is similar to John William) just appears out of nowhere.
----------
04/06/04
Frank R. McKee married Cora Alice Banks
Winterset, Madison, Iowa
-----------
Ahhh They moved, 10 miles north and 140 miles west.
-----------------
06/06/06
James Wilbert McKee married Mary Effie Banks
Winterstet, Madison, Iowa
which later made Josia Banks a grandfather and a great uncle to the same kids.
---------------
1910 Census

Name: Thomas Mckee
Birthplace: Iowa
Relationship to Head of Household: Self
Residence: Douglas, Madison, Iowa (Ahh he / they moved too)
Marital Status: Married
Father's Birthplace: Ireland
Mother's Birthplace: Pennsylvania
Household Gender Age
Thomas Mckee M 58y
Spouse Anna M Mckee F 54y
Child William D Mckee M 22y
Child John L Mckee M 15y (they got this one right)

Notes. I would assume William D, and Dean W are the same, and the census is off by 5 years on his age.

1920 and 1930 censuses show Robert and Anna are enjoying their golden years alone in Wnterset with many relatives near by.

I'd be interested to get all 8 of the chidren's names exactly correct and the death dates of the other 3 that died young.
It had to be 8, unless the birth records were incorrect.
