Yes, the McKees of Clearfield County are hard to keep straight as they tended to use the same names for their sons. William, James, and Thomas are frequently used.
My Thomas McKee is the son of James McKee and Jane Cree and would be a brother to your James McKee who was also their son. Thomas and his wife Hannah had at least one child -- Sarah J McKee (the J stands for Jane, I think, since Clearfield County marriage records show a Jane McKee married Abraham Shoff on 2 Oct 1851. According to an obituary that I found on Sarah J. Shoff,she was the daughter of Thomas and Hannah McKee and was born in 1830. She died 30 Apr 1916 and was interred at the Logan Valley Cemetery in Bellwood, McKee.
I have not found any other children for Thomas and Hannah as of yet but my ancestor, William McKee, supposedly had a father named Thomas. However, there are several other "Thomas McKee's" in the same family and I am trying to see if I can link to any of them. I am particularly interested in a Thomas McKee born in 1805 who was the son of Robert McKee and Mary Cree. Robert would be the brother of James McKee who married Jane Cree. The Cree girls were sisters.
If you haven't come across it already, there is an excellent family genealogy for this line of McKees at http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/m/c/k/Richard-L-Mckee/GENE17-0001.html. Unfortunately, it does not have the information I am seeking but it may be helpful to you.
