Hi Berty--Are you descended from James Arthur (or Arthur James) McKee?
I search my McKee family Pulaski Co KY. Casey Co KY is NW of Pulaski. This is internet research but I believe Isaiah McKee is son of James McKee & Susannah Dye, James son of Matthew McKee and Susannah Rouse of Casey Co. They lived in a remote area close to the borders of the 2 counties.
I recently emailed back and forth with a great granddau of Isaiah McKee and Eliza Dick. There is a large poppulation of Dick families in this area of the 2 KY counties as well. She has birth and death documentation, but we have not found Eliza on census records for Pulaski, even tho Eliza Dick was prob. born Somerset (county seat)Pulaski Co KY.
My goal is to identify McKees found in Pulaski Co KY. My gr gr gr grandparents are Arthur and Rosannah McKee, in Campbell Co TN 1850 census. Arthur was in Orphan's Court with brother William in Grayson Co VA, 1811. Arthur's son Joseph Alfred McKee migrated to Pulaski Co KY after 1860. The name Arthur caught my attention. So far, I have not connected NW Pulaski/SE Casey McKee family with my McKees.
It appears that the South Pulaski Co McKee family is also part of Matthew McKee's family as he left wife Mary "Polly" Clark McKee in Knox Co KY with at least 8 small children and went to Casey Co KY. Descendants of those McKee children migrated to McCreary and Pulaski Co.
Isaiah's sister Matilda McKee marr. Archibald Dick. Isaiah and Matilda were 2 of 12 children of James McKee. Their oldest sister Sarah Jane marr. James B. Dick and remained in Pulaski Co. The McKee/Dick connections are many.
I have dates, some approximated from census. Please email me if you wish.
