McKee - Greene Co., MO
Posted by: Jordan Bolin (ID *****2376) Date: April 04, 2013 at 06:25:21

Looking for info on the McKees of Greene Co., MO. Very confused about this line.

Know Margaret Jean McKee married Bert Pridgen after 1940.
Also know she was the daughter of Bryan McKee and Esther, but did not know Esther's last name.

Do know this:

I was looking through death records of McKees in Greene Co. and came across a record for a Donald McKee in 1922, he was only 4 mos old. His parents were listed as Bryan McKee and believe it said Esther Knoff. So I looked up marriage records in Greene Co. and found a Bryan McKee and Esther Knoff. The problem is that they married 3 March 1922. Donald's death certificate states he died 7 March 1922. (Was Donald their child together?) It seems ironic that he would die four days after his parents were wed. Also, got to thinking maybe Esther was married before and Knoff is not her maiden name. Searched some, and found an Esther Knoff living with the Stewart family (that claim her as their daughter that is married) in 1920. Looked, and found a divorce decree between Ross and Esther Knoff in 1921, but only claims one child between them: Charles Knoff. Found Charles living with Ross's parents in 1930. Very confused about all of this.

So, don't know if Esther was a Knoff or a Stewart. Have no info on her.

If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.

Thank you!!
